In this episode, I am talking to Rick Hardy Ph.D., CHE (he/him/his), Assistant Professor/Master Advisor Recreation, Sport, & Hospitality Management Health, Human Performance & Recreation Department, at Pittsburg State University.

On Rick’s signature he quotes "It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are." by E. E. Cummings. Led by courage, Rick’s uplifting story is one of adventure and personal discovery, from being a 1st generation college achiever, to becoming a lifelong and curious academic.   

Listen for Rick’s Can Do tips:

  1. Adapt, Improvise, and Overcome – inspired by the US Marine Corp mantra
  2. Each time you face overwhelming odds, know that the sun will rise.
  3. Don’t give up – keep building resilience.
