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.

  • When making key decisions, Gabby breaks the situation down to several buckets like time, money and impact on relationships.
  • How Gabby has used her voice via social media and the traditional media follows suit by reporting on her content.
  • The various sides of humility, from no better than to no less than.
  • How Gabby changes her vernacular in order to keep her mind healthy.
  • Gabby describes how there’s a subconscious and conscious side of her “Why”. Why she does what she does.
  • A Why Not Now? that Gabby is currently pursuing.
  • All-time favorite book.
