I realized all I've been doing up to this point is learning.
- Wade played tennis, but was always interested in sports in general.
- Went to Michigan State University to play tennis; got his sports management degree.
- That led to a long, illustrious career in various areas of the action sports world.
- In 2003, he joined NBC Sports as the general manager of action sports.
- He spearheaded the creation and management of the Dew Tour, the first-ever season-long tour for professional action sports.
- Says what you're doing when you're in your twenties is learning.
- When he looks back a few years, he realizes how much he's learned in such a short time period.
- Says it's helpful not to focus on chasing one exact job, but rather, follow the things that you like.
