Today we have Mark Schofield from Inside the Pylon and author of the new book 17 Drives on the podcast to share the story of his recent transition to a full-time football writer. Mark left a comfortable job as a practicing lawyer to chase this dream and provides an inspiring template for others looking to make that jump. Highlights from this episode include: - Mark's background as a former college quarterback and how that influences the way he sees the game. - The personal tribulations that led him to unhappiness in his career as a lawyer. - Why the support of those in your closest inner circle means the most when deciding to chase a place in this field. - The value of community and asking for help. - ?Mark's personal philosophy of "you only get one drive in the game of life" and how that motivates him to continue to work harder at this craft.
