President Obama and Derek Jeter Talk Retirement and Inspiration

President Barack Obama snuck a few jokes in during his casual meeting with baseball legend Derek Jeter, founding publisher of the The Players’ Tribune. The Roosevelt Room at the White House was filled with genuine admiration for each other. Retirement and life inspiration was the central theme–the interview was divided into short, introspective segments: “Childhood,” “Strength,” “Advice for Your Younger Self,” and “Walking Away.”

Obama and Jeter shared the importance of mentorship, role models and self-reflection. The two relatively young men briefly mentioned their philanthropic work through Jeter’s Turn 2 Foundation and Obama’s My Brother’s Keeper. And their life lessons translated into tangible goals, which is inspiring young men, in particular, to throw their dreams in the air and catch it.
