Episode 19 brings us Jessica Kleinschmidt of FanDuel Insiders, to dish on her backstory and place in the industry today. Jess and I discuss navigating some of the more niche parts of the industry, at least when we aren't sparring about baseball. She brings a unique perspective on being a woman in the business, but also just how to always stay positive and confident in all of life's dealings. Highlights from this episode include: - What led Jess to leave her comfortable government job to work in sports full-time. - The complications that followed that decision but why it was always the right call. - Jess' feelings on the #MoreThanMean video and what her experience is as a female in the sports world. - How she uses her unique perspective as a woman to an advantage and makes herself an asset by doing so. - Why confidence in yourself will always be the most important trait regardless of your field.
