It’s been a year since TedxPortland’s spring program, Wonderland, and we’re looking back on Joey’s powerful TedxTalk, which remains a compelling reminder about the dangers of perceived perfection (especially in the case of social media) and the constructive impact of failure.

Joey had the honor and privilege to participate in TedxPortland‘s 2016 program, joining a group of Oregon influencers, creators, business minds, entertainers and visionaries who shared their perspectives and contribution to a state that has given them so much.

These 10 minutes are likely Joey’s most candid and vulnerable when it comes to publicly addressing his life and NFL career. It is a central message he carries with him, and hopes to impart into the next generation of leaders in the state of Oregon.
