Author | Speaker | Podcast Host |Athlete Transition Coach
Taj Dashaun is an Author, Speaker, and Athlete Transition Coach. When his football career ended, Taj struggled heavily with depression. Because he was so focused on the game, he never fully developed a clear vision for his life. After several years of stumbling around in the emotional darkness of uncertainty, Taj began to take his eyes off of himself and focus on serving others.
He now runs an intensive program for retired athletes who, like he once was, are struggling to adapt to life after the game. Not only does Taj help former players land jobs and start businesses, he helps them find fulfillment in every area of their lives. It's become his personal mission and passion to reach out and help others overcome the fear, frustration and uncertainty associated with life post-athletics. He also hosts the "Thrive After Sports" Podcast.
