SE40 | Event + Response = Outcome with Tim Kight (E+R=O) | A Podcast Discussion

Event + Response = Outcome with Tim Kight (E+R=O) | A Podcast Discussion | Ohio Statdium | TBDBITL | SportsEpreneur

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.

Ohio State Buckeye great gets real on being a Buckeye and becoming an entrepreneur. In this episode, we chat with Chimdi Chekwa, a current NFL free agent and entrepreneur. The discussion focuses in on life in the NFL, sports and business, and the Ohio State Buckeyes culture.

Chimdi is a former Ohio State Buckeyes football player and current entrepreneur as a co-owner of The Pit BBQ Grille in Columbus, Ohio. He also has his hands in other ventures that we touch on in this chat. 

You may remember Chimdi from his days with the Ohio State Buckeyes, where he was a first-team All American cornerback. After college, Chimdi was drafted in the fourth round by the Oakland Raiders in the 2011 NFL Draft.  

Through much perseverance and motivation, Chimdi gives us insight around why he is so passionate about sports and entrepreneurship. And of course, we discuss all things Buckeyes and college football.

With our love of business and sports (and Eric’s deep-rooted Buckeye background), we are obviously excited to feature Chimdi Chekwa on the SportsEpreneur Podcast.
