Dave DesRochers Shares Life Lessons Learned from Football At Keynote at Dana Hills High School Interact Event
Dave DesRochers, vice president at PATH2HappiSuccess, shared life lessons learned from football at his keynote address in June 2019 at the Dana Hills High School Interact Event held in partnership with the Dana Point Rotary Club.
Interact is Rotary International’s service club for young people ages 12 to 18. Interact clubs bring together young people ages 12-18 to develop leadership skills while discovering the power of Service Above Self.
In his speech, Dave shared how lessons learned in sports have carried over into his business life. He pointed out the failures are simply opportunities to learn and do it better next time. He talked about how to meet life’s challenges and how teamwork is the key to big successes.
DesRochers shared his story of becoming a professional NFL football player for the Seattle Sea Hawks right out of college. He said he only played for a couple of years and joked that for him, NFL meant, “Not for Long.” After his NFL career, he played football in Canada as part of the World League before becoming an actor in TV shows, movies and commercials. He then spent 20 years providing wealth management advice to individuals, families, businesses and pensions.
After selling his financial business, he joined PATH2HappiSuccess, where, as the vice president and co-owner, he supports the company’s mission to help people find happy and successful careers based on what makes them unique. The company offers programs to help students find their best college majors and top careers and for adults in career transition.
