Winning the Gold, with Jonny Moseley


In this episode of Money Tales, our guest is Jonny Moseley, an Olympic gold medalist freestyle skier who brought his signature moves to the sport. When we think about Olympians, our focus is usually on the sport. There’s a whole money story behind it, and Jonny shares how he learned to hustle to pull funds together to support himself. Jonny has leveraged these important relationship and business skills in his ongoing career as a television presenter, fellow podcaster and entrepreneur.

Jonny is an Olympic and World Cup champion in mogul skiing and rated by Ski Magazine as one of the top ten most influential skiers of all time. At the Olympics in 1998, Jonny incorporated a snowboard-style grab into his 360° spin and earned a gold medal. His performance helped ignite a re-birth of the ski industry known as Freeskiing. He then challenged the US Ski Team to allow him to compete in professional events and became the first skier to medal in both the X Games and the Olympics. In 2002 Jonny lobbied the International Skiing Federation (FIS) to allow him to perform a semi-inverted trick, the Dinner Roll, at the 2002 Olympics. Reluctantly, the FIS approved but the judges awarded him 4th place.

After the Games, Jonny hosted Saturday Night Live and began a career in TV hosting and sports commentating. He devotes most of his time to product development and marketing for the entities he partners with including Squaw Valley, Toyota, Visit California, Warren Miller, K2, Peter Glenn and Tipsy Elves.
