This slide today is about an epidemic problem we all see sweeping the world. It seems all too often we now hear of situations in which the digital world has been a part of some sparked relationship between an adult and an unsuspecting teen or even adult, most often seems a teacher, or coach. But in reality, is occurring everyday in other non-education environments, we just get to hear about the ones in the coaching and education world. This world of texting and soci...

Books… Man I hated reading growing up, matter of fact, I still don’t like reading books! I was so bad at it, I was actually in remedial reading as a 3rd and 4th grader. There was an underlying reason, but that’s another story. But, I still don’t enjoy sitting down and reading a good book. For me, with all the road time, I do greatly enjoy listening to audio books, and Audible is the best app ever!

Today, today, this word can be so powerful if actually done. Yet, the word "empower" is almost so overused sometimes I think people become numb to it, and it never actually occurs.

Who all remembers their high school sporting career and all the awesome moments that were created from it!? Some maybe even game winning shots, or a momentous touchdown, or a triple overtime game, or a hit on someone that blew snot out of your nose, but you knew they felt it! Some even lucky enough to win a state championship! The memories we have are often all so vivid, we can remember them like yesterday, the smell, the feeling, the aches and the pains. It was oft...

I recently had a conversation with a lovely lady that is part of the AMC family and learned more about her and some of the previous events not only in the beginning of her employment with us, but in her previous work years. She was thanking us for a gift we had given her (remember the $100 bill Leadership post?), and was talking on how some of the younger folks in our organization just don't fully understand how lucky they are to be at AMC, because she had been in p...
