FROM THIS EPISODE

Regardless of what you’ve seen in movies and sports, sometimes, no matter how much effort you put into reaching your goal, the big break happens to someone else, your dream stays a dream, and the movie doesn’t end. On this episode, 3 stories about cutting your losses and moving on.

First… Ariel Beck is an MMA fighter who travels the country in a truck with her husband/manager. When the opportunity comes for her to enter into her first pro match, she takes it.

Produced by Nate Hegyi. Supervising producer for UnFictional was Nick White.
