In the latest 40 under 40 podcast, Morgans adviser Chris Titley speaks to Jade North. Jade is an Indigenous Australian who has captained and played for the Socceroos. Jade tells the story of his upbringing, the choice of soccer, the challenges of being a professional sports person and how these challenges can relate to business life:
"What I've learnt over the years is that you've got to work hard. Nothing comes easy... I remember writing down when I was maybe 15 or 16 at some training camps that I wanted to play for the Socceroos... I think in the back of your mind it gives you a purpose and drive to go to work, go to training and I'm going to do the best I can every day I can."
He shares his tips for other athletes and business-minded executives as well as his involvement in "Kicking with a cuz", his new philanthropic venture.
