Author / Speaker / Podcast Host / Athlete Transition Coach
Taj Dashaun is an Author, Speaker, and Athlete Transition Coach. When his football career ended, Taj struggled heavily with depression. Because he was so focused on the game, he never fully developed a clear vision for his life. After several years of stumbling around in the emotional darkness of uncertainty, Taj began to take his eyes off of himself and focus on serving others.
He now runs holistic programs for retired athletes who, like he once was, are struggling to adapt to life after the game.
