For the Love of Luv: Evert Kruse and Judy Croon on The Backpack Show

Episode Description

For the Love of Luv: On this episode of The Backpack Show with Chris Brogan and Kerry O'Shea Gorgone, we'll talk with Evert Kruse, who grew up in Sweden loving the game of tennis. He played on the European circuit for a while before coming with the family to America, where he kept up his gameplay. Because of that love, Kruse launched the Santa Monica Tennis Academy, both for aspiring pros but also for anyone who cared about the game as much as he did.

Kruse took his passion and drive for athletics and applied it to running Tenson, an athletic wear company as Swedish as he is. Founded by Paul Rydholm in the 50s, Tenson made for people who love the outdoors, sporting, and the world around them. We’re here to learn about how his athletic beginnings influence his corporate success as CEO.

We'll also talk with "Canada's Keynote Humorist," Judy Croon. Judy's taken to showing organizations of all kinds how that old adage “laughter is the best medicine” is a very real prescription for health, and how to accomplish this in our day to day business and personal settings.

We'll ask Judy all kinds of questions about how the healing power of comedy will help us shake off the nonstop misery of 2020 and make 2021 even better.
