In 2003, NBA player Jay Williams suffered injuries that ended his career on the court and left him seeking a new path in life. Jay admits that he wouldn't have gotten through that difficult time without his "board of advisers," and he says that anyone going through a tough time needs to assemble a similar group of trusted people.

"My mother was on my board. My dad was on my board. My girlfriend at the time was on my board. Coach K was on my board," he says. "What I did with them is I sat down and I went through the pros and cons about what is Jason good at? What does Jason like? I never took time to actually think about what are my passions."
