Entrepreneur Lessons from the Olympics

Kerri Pottharst is Australia’s most decorated Indoor and Beach Volleyball player. She won bronze and gold in beach volleyball Olympics. Her interview offers insights businesses can take to heart as well.

"Everyone remembers you winning the gold, but no one sees the 18 years prior to that. There were highs and there were lows, there were times I didn’t believe in myself but I always, always pushed through. I just had it in me. I wanted to see how good I could be. I wanted to be the best."

Remember that there are highs and lows. The high moments - yes, they are but moments - are there for your to hold onto to get you through the low times. There always seems to be more lows than highs. Hang in there!

"Indoor and Beach Volleyball have taught me that it takes passion, preparation and belief to be successful in anything. The passion will get you up in morning and do the things you may not always enjoy, the preparation is all the hard work and you need to develop the belief in
yourself to achieve success."
