Click Here to Watch Full Episode

In episode 24 of the Yellow Mentality podcast, CEO of Sports 1 Marketing and one of the most notable individuals in the sports industry David Meltzer came on the show to discuss money, mindset and the truth about success.

David became a millionaire by age 31. He was working for a law firm selling legal data online.

At the same time, he was making connections and building relationships with big names in the sports and music industries. He was living the so-called “life” until he began to lose focus of what was really important in life and his core values were being compromised. 

By that time it was too late, he was heavily leveraged in his real estate investments and found himself going into bankruptcy. In this episode, David takes us through this tough time in his life and what he did physically and mentally to get back the life he wanted so much. 

Leigh Steinberg brought him under his wing until he eventually opened his own sports agency with Hall of Fame QB Warren Moon.

David talks about many lessons he learned going from rags to riches back to broke and ultimately to wealthy, not just in his pocket but in his mind and the way he lives his everyday life.

He shares the warning signs he got leading up to losing all his money, as well as the ideas and mindset that kept him from giving up and to keep pushing no matter what happens.
