Managing the health of the elite athlete – Ashley Stiven

For many athletes, coaches, clinicians and managers, the integrated and performance-focused approach to elite athlete health and coaching is still a difficult concept. Clinicians are focused on the medical ‘evidence’ and the physical health of the athlete and often want to have the ‘final say’ on these matters. They then tend to overlook the potential performance and psychological consequences when making decisions in isolation and when athlete preferences are excluded from the consultation. The reality check of a specific goal or ‘preference’ is demanded by the athlete–coach team and it might be argued that clinicians choosing to ignore this element only practise ‘safe medicine’. They might find it difficult to survive in the elite sport setting. Coaches and athletes are sometimes so performance focused that the health consequences of decisions in the heat of the moment are not taken into account.

It is therefore important to have a critical look at the organisation of medical support services to elite athletes, the process of decision-making in the elite sport environment and the best way to continuously manage athlete health. Athletes cannot do this in isolation and need the support of a well organised and integrated health and coaching team working in harmony towards common goals in a new Integrated Performance Health Management and Coaching model.

#2220 Pseudonymity in Web3 explained

Joining me is a person whose real name I don’t even know. He goes by the pseudonym Artorias. He’s not exactly running a company; he’s running a DAO, which means that he and a group of other people got together and they decided to do something that they couldn’t do on their own.
 

Cult is an investment DAO, a decentralized autonomous organization. Its members invest in projects that help bring about decentralization of power.

#2218 How Bankless launched their DAO

I’ve got another web3 interview for you today. Today’s guest is Lucas Campbell. He was working at a publishing company called Bankless, which has been evangalizing web3 as the future.

#2217 The glamping startup that sold for $100,000,000

My guest today created a company that I’ve watched from a distance. It’s  called Under Canvas and what they do is put up these gorgeous, beautiful tents near national parks that let you be part of nature but without having to go full-blown camping. It was an ecotourism company that was facilitation glamping before glamping was really a thing.
She sold that company for $100 million in 2018. I want to find out how she did it.

Some of you are going to love what today’s company sells and others are going to not just hate it, but hate me for even talking about it.

#2214 The story behind Boomerang

Today I’m talking to the founder of one of the OG email marketing tools, Boomerang.
I remember they even created the email game to make getting down to inbox zero fun. They were playing around with this stuff and it was clever. It was ahead of its time and I feel like in many ways they were neglected because they weren’t part of Silicon Valley the way others were.

I was nervous to do today’s interview because my guest today has built an amazing business but it’s the kind of business that typically stays hidden.
Laura Spaulding is the founder of Spaulding Decon, a franchised decontamination service to offer crime scene, hoarding and meth-lab cleanup.
One of the things I find amazing about her story is how she turned this business into a media machine by leveraging social media.
