Staying Productive During Hiatus (PT126)

Alex and Nick discuss ways of surviving your hiatus and staying productive during the off season.

Why is being active all year long important? How do you look for a next job? How do you keep in touch during a hiatus? Why are hobbies and social interactions vital? How can you keep yourself healthy and financially stable?
