I recently huddled with Corey Mays, retired NFL linebacker turned angel investor and motivational speaker about life after professional football, business strategies for entrepreneurs, ways for small business owners to stay connected, and business tips for how entrepreneurs can pivot during COVID-19.

Corey Mays is an angel investor, entrepreneur, mentor, keynote speaker, and volunteer with various organizations that give back globally, as well in the Chicago community. He currently serves as President of the NFL Alumni Chicago Chapter and is Co-Chair of the Economic Empowerment Committee for the 100 Black Men Chicago Chapter.
