Starting our BE A PRO Series off strong with Karon Riley! I picked the PERFECT person to kickoff this series! He knows a thing or two about uncovering greatness.
Karon and I discussed
📍 Intentional direction
📍 Never losing sight of the plan
📍 “Sharpening your sword in silence” and what that means
📍 Karon Joseph Riley is a passionate and determined being at heart. Originally a fourth round draft pick of the Chicago Bears, Karon spent 5 seasons on an NFL roster with the Bears and Atlanta Falcons, as Defensive End and Linebacker. He is the all time sack leader in the University of Minnesota history and left the University an All American and the Big Ten defensive player of the year. Karon’s background and knowledge in sports is a given, but his talent doesn’t stop on the field.
Karon honed his skills in front of the camera by co-hosting a handful of local sports shows. Upon retiring from the NFL, Karon followed his true passion to act and started training in the craft. Soon after he nabbed his first role in Russ Parr’s Romantic comedy, “35 and Ticking,”
Get to know me:
📍In 2001, I signed my first NFL contract with the San Francisco 49ers and achieved a goal I set for myself when I was 10 years old. I spent the next 7 years in the NFL, won a Super Bowl with the Patriots, and lived my dream. And then at the age of 30… it was over. For the next several years, I struggled to find myself again. Can you relate? I was unsure …. Who was I without football? What was I passionate about? What could I offer the world? How could I make an impact? I realized that all of those years spent pursuing… realizing… and living the dream of playing Pro Football taught me some incredibly valuable lessons. Lessons about what it takes to be a High Performer, how to come back from failure, and how to become and live your absolute best self every single day. I want to share that information with the world and that is why I created BE A PRO.
