  • #1 thing you must ask yourself is “WHY”
  • Quote: “Life's most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’” – MLK Jr.  
  • I want to help young men
  • There’s a stress level of the job… you CANNOT bring that stress home to your family
  • You must make a sacrifice if you want to get in
  • Best job to get into this business is a D2 Graduate Assistant, because you have to do everything for the program
  • Your job is to develop men… once you do that, you can coach
  • Your spouse has to understand your job
    • Your family and commitment to your job has to be complete
  • Patience is truly a virtue. Embrace the process
