“This is why, how, or what I need to do to be successful, and personally why I relate a lot of business back to the nuances of professional football.”
This week’s Suiting Up Podcast guest is a former NFL linebacker who played 11 seasons professionally, making 2 Super Bowl appearances, college football for the Michigan Wolverines, winning a National Championship, and earned All-Big 10 honors for 3 straight seasons. He’s a stud.
In addition to his football career, Dhani’s had a massively successful television career, which he’s supplemented with a career operating companies (he’s owned and operated a coffee shop, ad agency, and staffing business), and more recently, investing in them. One of my all-time favorite Dhani shows was his Travel Channel series, “Dhani Tackles the Glove”, as well as his VH1 show, “Ton of Cash”. Today, Dhani’s mirroring the success of “Shark Tank” with his own investor hosting national series hit, “Adventure Capitalists”, which is regularly programmed on CNBC.
I’m your host Paul Rabil and welcome to “Suiting Up Podcast,” a show where I delve into the stories of some of today’s leading athletes, entrepreneurs, and entertainers, interviewing them and unpacking the psychology of their success.
Enjoy the show.

This balancing act has become the new norm for athletes who seek to strike while the iron is hot both on the field and in the boardroom and it’s a challenge that requires more than just good time management.
