Talent is a gift, uncommon is a choice. In this episode, we chat with Tim Kight, Founder of Focus 3 and host of The Focus 3 Podcast with Urban Meyer. We discuss many topics including motivation, uncommon people, and wide receiver Michael Thomas.
Tim’s business has a mission is to help companies around the world align the power of leadership, culture, and behavior to achieve next level results.
I first learned of Tim Kight when Ohio State shared the leadership program they had started after the 2012 season. Hearing how they identified Freshman, JT Barrett as an elite leader had me intrigued by what was to come with the Buckeyes.
Sure enough in 2014, Ohio State won the national championship against a national perception and in the face of much adversity. As I continued to pay attention to the program, it was obvious the strong leadership the program had. And I came to realize the impact Tim Kight was having behind the scenes.
I would encourage you to become a subscriber to The Focus 3 Podcast. It will absolutely be a difference maker for you.
Let’s get into uncommon leadership and welcome Tim Kight on the SportsEpreneur Podcast.

With today’s tools, there are ways to find (or create) the platform you want to see. We talk about the good and the bad in sports media.
We had Shane Larson, the host of The Gametime Guru Podcast, share his thoughts on this topic in this episode.
