I went through a coaching program with the International Coach Federation and it changed my life.

Now, as an athlete and coach, I use those same principles to help myself and others create the lives that they want.. In this episode, you will learn the following: 1. The importance of mental fitness and how it can lead to a happier life 2. The power of coaching and how it can help you overcome difficult challenges 3. The benefits of being an athlete, including the ability to better manage your life and see incremental results. I also share some recent challenges and how I'm planning to navigate them.  Welcome to Reinvention podcast: IG: welcome_sarah Want to work with me? Visit to learn more.

Micah Johnson is a self-taught figurative artist who uses strong gestural lines and loose brush strokes to create dramatic portraits that feature African-American children. Although Micah spent seven years as a professional baseball player, you rarely see reference to his career in any of his works. He sees art as an independent journey with the opportunity to inspire a broader demographic around the subjects of racial equality, chasing your dreams without limitations, and the empowerment of young people. I’m excited to have Micah on the show today to discuss his interest in Non Fungible Tokens (NFTs) and his current opportunity to blend digital NFTs with offline life.           Want to work with me?
