Business Consultant & Former NFL Player

After retiring from football, Ogden pursued a career in construction and contracting.

He pulled himself together during his darkest hours and got a part-time job as a custodian.

Now, he shares his powerful story to help others learn how to fail forward and achieve success in their lives.

As a speaker, he’s landed jobs with Fortune 500 companies like Amazon, Goldman Sachs and Intel.
