Swin Cash -The Link Between Sportsmanship and Entrepreneurship

Swin Cash is a 3-Time WNBA Champion, Olympic Gold Medalist, a former studio analyst and broadcaster, business owner, and philanthropist. She is the Vice President of Basketball Operations and Teamwork for the Pelicans NBA team, and will be inducted into the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame in 2020.

Additionally, Swin is an advocate against gun violence and police brutality. 

In other words….she is a damn rockstar and I don’t know how she does it all!

What’s so unique about Swin is that she’s more than just a basketball player. She has successfully made it to an executive seat in a male-dominated world, and this week I had the pleasure of chatting with this incredibly inspiring woman. In this Powertalk, Swin drops a ton of nuggets for us all including this piece that really made me think about how we are raising our children.
