John De WittMy guest today, on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots free podcast interview is an ex- American footballer, who after twelve years as a professional was in an amazing place.

He played for the Houston Oilers, NFL Europe Scottish Claymores, CFL Montreal Alouettes, XFL San Francisco Demons and even the AFL.

The reason he was in an amazing place, was due to the fact, once he retired as a professional he realised that he had gained an amazing insight into professional sports trauma.

He had seen, and experienced the devastating effects of TBI and concussions, and knew that there was a path to transition into away from the game

And that is a bridge that so many sportsman struggle with.

You put your heart and soul into creating the dream life that the majority of boys crave, and then what do you do when that short career is over.

Well our guest got his Doctor of Chiropractic degree as well as certifications in Advanced Sports Nutrition and Concussion Assessment and ever since the movie, Concussion, came out… he made it his mission to NOT end up like my grandfather, who died from advanced dementia at 72.

He has written a book, created a web class and plan on coming out with a line of supplements all to help us be healthy in mind and brain.

So its all very well having insider knowledge, but how do you turn this into a profitable business that people want and need?

And is there a quick fix for head injuries? Or is it a simple case of trying our hardest not to get them in the first place?

Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots, with the one and only Mr John DeWitt
