One can always dream,right?
I'd be honoured to be a rep for @owlcrate - my chances to become one? Slim - but if I don't try I won't get chosen either.
So,why me you say?
Well, I love books and I love bookish things and I like to share the love of reading.
Always thankful for those sharing their love and helped me finding joy in reading. I find peace and comfort in reading, a time to relax.
And to be able to share this with others is heartwarming and to also be able to help promote companies that works for spreading even more bookish love is a bonus.
4x60g of micro roasted coffee - each lot number represents a roaster though out the UK & Ireland. Who's the roaster? Well you get 4 completely different ones each month #subscriptionbox#specialtycoffee#tasting
NEW BLOG POST: What I Learned About Business from Assistant Coaching My 6YO’s Soccer Team
All you really need to do is one thing…
My wife, Lesley, and I look at the calendar all the time. At least it feels like it’s all the time, but probably because yeah, it’s all_the_time.
Me: “Wow, this weekend already looks busy, but at least we’ll have some time next wee….oh….wait, nope, that looks busy, too.” •
Les: “Maybe things will calm down a bit next month.” •
Me: “Nope. We have that thing and that other thing and we still need to RSVP to that one thing.” •
Les: “…” •
Me: “…” •
Both of Us: (Silently starting to realize that with three young boys, this isn’t a week-to-week thing, but rather how life will probably be for the next 18 years).
We knew these days would come, but saying that we were prepared is, well, a stretch. And by “a stretch,” I mean, “totally and completely inaccurate.”
That said, I was eager to volunteer to be an assistant coach for my 6YO’s co-ed soccer team, The Dragons. Practice every Sunday evening and a game every weekend. It’s been super fun. I don’t know much about soccer, but know just enough to seem like I know a lot to a bunch of first-graders. Whatever. I’ll take it.
But I learned something during the first practice a few weeks ago and I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it. Here it is: the role of assistant coach becomes exponentially easier when you do just one, simple thing:
Learn all the kids’ names.
That’s it. Seriously. Learn their names. Just the first ones, even. It’s amazing what happens next: they instantly connect with you. You become someone that knows them and is trying to (desperately and often clumsily) teach them about sportsmanship, grit, and teamwork.
Learning their names was key. Everything else I do – like the unwarranted high-fives, the random yelling of “good hustle!” at no one in particular, and the acting like I know what I’m doing because I am holding a clipboard – is all extra.
Telling them to call me Coach V personalizes me, but knowing their names takes it a step further because it personalizes them.

We are excited to be partnering two Acadia Facilities for our upcoming October Lunch and Learn Event!
Please join Michael Roeske, PsyD, CEO of Bayside Marin, at San Jose Behavioral Health, in a discussion regarding the growing debate over addiction and how to treat it.
Despite recent political and public calls for treatment, there is an unfortunate lack of unity in the field. Specifically, there exists a series of growing, contentious and fomenting debates. In this talk, we will explore some of the issues and attempt to undercut the divide.
Join us on Wednesday, October 18th: 12-2pm at the SJBH facility. There will be an amazing presentation, a catered lunch will be served and there will be a raffle with awesome prizes, so make sure you bring your business cards, brochures, team members and friends!
We are proud to be hosting these monthly community events and hope to educate all members of society who wish to learn and attend.#rsvp#sjbh#educate#livetolearn#monthly#lunchandlearn#baysidemarin#behavioralhealth#awareness#fightthestigma
