As a successful entrepreneur and Division-I athlete, Bognar understands the importance of balancing her time effectively. With her sky-high ambitions, a demanding academic schedule, frequent business trips around the country, relationships to maintain, and a successful company to continue growing, it’s no easy task. However, Bognar has found that prioritizing her tasks and staying focused on her goals has helped her achieve success in both areas of her life.
In addition to her busy schedule, Bognar is also passionate about giving back to the community. She believes that NIL (Name, Image, Likeness) has opened up new opportunities for student-athletes to connect with their fans on a personal level. For Illinois swim and dive team members, Top Tier Lessons has already had a significant impact on their fan base.
“I’ve had parents personally reach out asking when our meets are,” said Bognar. “Swimming and diving isn’t typically a sport that we get many people out from the community to come watch us. We want to make sure that these non-revenue sports are getting more people in from the community.”
Bognar’s passion for both business and athletics drives her to succeed in everything she does. Whether she’s negotiating deals or training for competitions, she approaches each challenge with determination and focus. Despite the challenges she faces in balancing her busy schedule, Bognar remains committed to achieving both personal and professional success.
