Dre “DreAllDay” Baldwin started playing basketball at age 14. Didn’t make his high school team until his senior year — and spent that season on the bench.
5 years after his final high school game, which he watched from a great seat on the bench, Dre signed his first professional basketball contract, beginning a 9-year career.
Around that same time, Dre published his first of over 7,000+ videos and created the “Work On Your Game” brand that is synonymous with the highest level of the Mental Game.
If you’ve ever joined a gym (or re-started your workouts), you know The Third Day.
Day One, you feel great. New gym clothes, new sneakers, a new trainer… new everything! It’s tough, but it’s fun to be back.
Day Two brings some soreness, but now you have a streak going — can’t quit now!
The Third Day, things are… different. SEVERE mental and physical fatigue. You seriously consider quitting this whole getting-in-shape scheme (again).
The Third Day is when things are no longer new and exciting, but there’s still a job to be done — and you are responsible. Staying mentally “On” is a challenge. How do you keep the momentum to finish strong?

Driven by his internal competitive fire, Dre was determined to take his career to professional level, and he succeeded in doing just that starting in 2005.
Combining his playing talents with his ability to market himself, Dre went on to a 9-year professional basketball career that took him through 8 countries in all, including Lithuania, Montenegro, Germany, Mexico, Croatia and Slovakia.
In 2014, Dre wrote The Overseas Basketball Blueprint, the first and only reference guide for playing professional basketball abroad. To date, thousands of players have learned about the pro game and what steps to take to create their own careers through Dre.
Even before his pro basketball career had began, Dre started sharing his thoughts and his journey online through blogging starting in May 2005. Less than a year later, Dre published his first video — a highlight clip from a pro basketball exposure camp he’d attended — to a new website called “YouTube.”
Dre’s basketball training videos, the first “athlete workout” videos ever shared online by anyone in any sport, quickly caught fire, making Dre’s name more known to YouTube viewers than even his professional playing career.
Dre leveraged that popularity into branding and marketing campaigns with Nike, Wendy’s, Gatorade, the NBA, G-League, Buick, STASH, Jordan Brand, Samsung, and many more.
Work On Your Game is the DAILY show where you learn the Discipline to show up every day, the Confidence to put yourself out there boldly and authentically, the Mental Toughness to continue showing up and putting yourself out there — even when things aren’t working in your favor, and the Personal Initiative to make things happen instead of waiting for things to happen.
