Welcome to Episode 73 of the No Quit Living Podcast.
NQL is a personal development podcast designed to help listeners achieve their goals and desires. Through hearing the inspiring stories and tips from the greats, we will all find it easier to stay motivated.
We are thrilled to have our first former NFL player as a guest on our show today. He is hopefully the first of many to come, and we couldn't have asked for someone better - Shawne "Lights Out" Merriman. Shawne's story embodies so much of what we talk about and believe here at No Quit Living. As a former professional athlete turned entrepreneur, topics like perseverance, accomplishing goals, failure and success are far from foreign to him. Growing up, Shawne didn't have much. His family struggled a lot during his childhood, and two of his houses even burned down because his mother couldn't afford to pay the electric bill and resorted to using candles. Despite this circumstance, Shawne worked hard and brought his athleticism to new heights. He got the name "Lights Out" in High School when he knocked out four players in one game. He eventually landed himself a spot on the San Diego Chargers after college and now runs his own "Lights Out" apparel brand.
