Ep.234 | B.B. Abbott | Bet On Yourself Without a Backup Plan

When’s the last time you bet on yourself? 

When you DON’T bet on yourself, what gets in the way? Typically, it’s the same old culprits:

*Fear of the unknown

*Lack of confidence


They could be paralyzing, therefore keeping you stuck in status quo. In many cases, you feel like the gap between where you are and where you want to be gets wider. 

If you’ve ever struggled to bet on yourself, especially when it comes to your dreams and goals, you’re going to LOVE this week’s conversation on the Coming Up Clutch with J.R.™ show. I’m on the mic with longtime baseball agent and the Executive Vice President & Managing Director of Wasserman Baseball, B.B. Abbott.

In this episode, you’ll hear:

  • Why not knowing what to do didn’t stop B.B. from betting on himself and following his passion to work in baseball
  • Why B.B. never went into following his passion with a backup plan
  • The one thing B.B. stuck close to as he was making a HUGE transition to one of the largest media companies in the world
