Former NHL player Adam Foote is our special guest on this week’s episode of Life After Fame. We discuss his successful 19-year career in the NHL, including winning two Stanley Cup championships with the Colorado Avalanche, and unveil the secret of how Adam became the inspiration of the Life After Fame Podcast!
We discuss how his toughness on the ice, the changes in the game, and the importance of “policing” on the ice. Foote shared how his competitive nature and work ethic came from his strict upbringing and shared his personal experience with retirement and transitioning from a pro hockey player to regular life and what’s next in life.
Finally, the conversation turned to the challenges of parenting and finding the right balance between pushing children to succeed and letting them pursue their passions. Our conversation ends with a hard-hitting question from the hosts about lawnmowers and their importance in a guy’s life. You’re not going to want to miss this episode with the Origin Adam Foote.
