Second Career: TV Producer Turns Olympic Hopeful


Lisa Fisco's life changed after her husband left her and their three young children. She went back to work full-time as a TV producer while she struggled through a brutal divorce that led to depression and a 100-plus pound weight gain. Seven years after her divorce, her children decided to move in with their father.

Fisco was devastated. "I wanted to do something that would take my mind away from missing my kids," she says.

So, she enrolled in a course in entrepreneurship at UCLA. The professor's first assignment was to remember your childhood dreams; he believed that most people, sometime in their life, always go back to what they loved as a child.
