What is the life of a professional tennis player REALLY like? Former professional tennis player Rina Einy who’s played in the Australian Open, US Open, Wimbledon and the Olympics, gives a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the realities of being a professional athlete, why she decided to move on from tennis to become a finance professional, and how to balance your career choices with your personal relationships. In the Mental Fuel® segment, I’ll explain why quitting is sometimes the best thing you can do for your career and life.
During this episode’s Mental Fuel segment, I talked about the downside and upside of quitting. What’s one “carrot” you’ve been chasing in your own career that keeps you hanging on a bit longer in your current professional role, even though you’re not fully happy? If chasing that goal is no longer serving you, what will it take for you to decide to walk away?
I’d love to hear what goal you’ve decided to let go of so you can pursue something more meaningful for your career. Leave a comment below or a voicemail for me if you want to share your story with the rest of the Career Relaunch listener community.
Rina Einy is a former professional tennis player who’s played in the Olympics and Grand Slams including Wimbledon, the French Open, and the US Open against well known players including Martina Navratilova, Steffi Graf, Chris Evert, and Pam Shriver. She eventually moved on to work in finance for JP Morgan.
She went onto serve as the Managing Director for Textyle International, an outerwear company with offices in Asia and Europe. In 2018, Rina launched her own clothing brand Culthread, and was featured in this interview with the Talented Ladies Club where you can read more about her inspiring career story and perspectives on how to do what you love in your career.
