You've heard the popular saying, "You can do anything you set your mind to."

This mantra was key to Dylan Casey's success.

Dylan is a retired professional cyclist who rode alongside Lance Armstrong on the US Postal cycling team. After winning multiple championships, Dylan then switched career paths and began working up the Silicon Valley tech chain. From joining Google when they only had a few hundred employees to becoming a Senior Director of Consumer Platforms at Yahoo, Dylan not only built himself a storied career, but a varied one.

What was his secret?

Determination? Intelligence? Hustle? Privilege? Luck?

Join us as host Geoffrey Woo explores Dylan’s journey and learns about the characteristics that enabled him to reach the top of two completely different industries.

In this episode, you'll discover:

  • How mental fortitude was key for Dylan to overcome career obstacles and switch industries
  • The state of endurance sports science during the late 90's and how the US Postal Cycling Team was ahead of the curve
  • Leadership, Purpose, & Diet: How to inspire a team (& yourself!) and what Dylan eats to stay on top of his mental game
