All advisors, coaches, gurus, and leaders will resolutely state that in order to do good for others you have to care, nurture and invest in your SELF. At Athena Racing we are doing that with an incredible team of ten young high school ladies.
Leading by example, we are surrounding them with mentors, teaching with real-life experiences, and giving them hands-on projects. They will get to see and experience ideas coming to life. Some will fail but failure teaches. Some won’t win the competition but will learn how to be a graceful participant. Everything that we are doing is reality.
Don’t think we don’t love winning, we do. And everyone should. The tasks that are the hardest provide amazing grace, that should be celebrated
Our application period just closed for our inaugural 2019-2020 team. Follow, help, donate, and cheer on our amazing team. You will see a part of you in each of them. This is going to be an amazing experience for our team, their families and our staff. How often do you get the opportunity to help and teach teenagers who are open for your assistance? To give advice and guidance to someone you see as a younger version of yourself?
My question to you: what advice would you give your 16-year old self knowing what you know now? How would you help your 16-year old self?
