Joe Hawley has nothing left to prove to anyone. In fact, he came to this very realization himself standing on the sidelines with his Tampa Bay Buccaneers teammates during Week 1 of his last NFL season. Right then he decided that he was finally done proving something in NFL. He was now ready for the challenges waiting for him on the other side of playing professional football.
But like any good epic story, Joe first needed to embark on his own hero's journey. A spiritual journey in purpose, but also a literal one. Joe Hawley sold almost all his things and set off for a cross-country road trip in a camper van with his dog, to visit as much of the United States as he could. He chronicled much of his travels himself via his Man Van Dog Blog and his one-of-a-kind journey was also chronicled in both Men's HealthandUSA Today
Now the founder of The Hart Collective, Joe Hawley sits down with Jay Kapoor to share some of the realizations he came to on his road trip, how he came to terms with his place in the universe, what it really means to be a professional athlete, how anyone can develop a digital presence, and why the only way to grow as a person is to seek out the things that scare you the most.
This was a fantastic, life-affirming conversation with one of the most thoughtful and thought-provoking guests we'd had on The Game Plan and we can't wait for your to hear this episode with former NFL Center and Founder of the Hart Collective, Joe Hawley
