Aiming high after a career in sport

Are you prepared for life after sport?

You’ve lived for your sport – given it everything you’ve got. You’ve experienced unparalleled highs – crossing the winning line or scoring the winning goal. And you loved every minute of it.

But your career as an elite athlete will not last forever. You dread the day you’ll have to empty your locker for good.

Do you have a plan for life after sport?

As an athlete you wouldn’t dream of approaching a game or performance without a plan. In the same way, you now need to plan and prepare for your life after sport – to ensure that you keep winning.

“I strongly recommend Julie for sport professionals looking to build a concrete future after their career. She helped me to find the skills I can transpose from the field to business. She understood my challenges and motivations, helped me identify opportunities for growth and employed a well-defined career planning process to help me develop a realistic plan to achieve goals and aspirations. If you’re looking for a talented coach to plan the ‘after-career’ Julie is the right person.”


Life after sport - what next?

The transition out of sport can be particularly problematic. Together with two former professional footballers from the UK, I was recently interviewed to discuss the issues that many athletes face at retirement and what can be done to make the transition easier.
