You know that thing you’ve been thinking about doing? Why Not Now? This show has been created because I believe the world will be a better place if more people ask themselves, “Why Not Now?” Each episode you’ll hear from a professional Why Notter and learn how they answered the question and took action so you can too.

Gabby Reece is known for her successful professional volleyball career but the 6’ 3” powerhouse wears many hats as a model, fitness leader, TV host and mom as well. We talk through several key times when Gabby has applied her unique Why Not Now? decision-making process, which is quite formulaic. How she navigates through the decision to give up a for sure thing for an unknown has elevated her success on many occasions. She also talks about making co-decisions with her pro surfer husband, Laird Hamilton.
