Ginny Gilder is a two time Olympian in rowing, co-owner of the WNBA Seattle Storm basketball team as well as an entrepreneur, author of Course Correction: A Story of Rowing and Resilience in the Wake of Title IX and a leader in the fight for women’s rights. As a member of the 1980 Olympic team, she and 600+ other Olympians had to sit out because of the boycott implemented by President Carter. A huge bummer to all the athletes who had worked so hard to make that prodigious team.
But most of all, she’s a woman who possesses an immense amount of wisdom by way of self reflection and a dedication to self growth. She and Peter discuss a lot of topics that include personal wake-up calls (8:50), how she learned to pay attention to her body (9:27), how to challenge your hyper critical internal voices (19:25), how she deals with her present physical state being different from the past (29:55), tips on how to look at the big picture of being physically active and fit (31:40), her passion and and main focus when it comes to excelling in business (40:50), how to feel more engaged in life (44:53), doing what we “should” to do vs following our hearts (48:23), and how she deals with her mental struggle around the value of what she has to say and write about (52:10).
