Are Your Parents Always Right?


This article is specifically for young athletes. I work with young athletes every day from all over the world in my office and by Skype.

Be Your Own Advantage In Your Sport


Being small than the other players is never a disadvantage! It was the 6th grade when I got the first indication that I was the smallest player on the field. I was playing football representing my school, the Gisler Gators, on a perfect Saturday morning. As one of the fastest on the team and able to catch anything thrown at me, I played wide receiver.
