Live Richer Podcast, Episode 5: Apolo Ohno Shares the Secret to His ‘Gold Medal Mindset’

This Episode

In this episode of the “Live Richer Podcast with Jaime Catmull,” eight-time medalist and best-selling author Apolo Ohno sat with our host to talk about the ins and outs of the financial windfalls most Olympians aren’t prepared for when winning big. Ohno, who has lived his life based on the “gold medal mindset,” gives key points on how to turn a financial disaster into personal finance knowledge.

The Winter Olympian also speaks about his new book “Hard Pivot,” and how he had to embrace the change, struggles and challenges that his life and career presented him. One of the biggest takeaways from this episode is the many misconceptions around Olympic winnings and payments. For Apolo, living richer is not just practical habits, but a conscious perspective to always be aware of the hard turns life can bring.
