I’ve gotten a lot of positive feedback about the videos I’ve been sharing on Fridays. Many people have told me they especially like the videos on youth sports and ways to keep kids healthy in these sports. If you haven’t been watching these videos, please subscribe to my YouTube channel, and they will be automatically delivered to you.
I mention these youth sports videos because I want to create another free resource to replace The Year of the Healthy Athlete. That e-book was fun to create, and so many people have told me they loved it. I want to develop another free book or program that can help athletes and active people. If you have any ideas for a program you would like me to create, click here to share your suggestion! Thank you!
Book I read this week: Roger Love’s Vocal Power: Speaking with Authority, Clarity and Conviction (Your Coach in a Box). This audio program covers many issues experienced by public speakers, such as stage fright and making eye contact, in addition to discussing all sorts of vocal issues. In it, you learn how to care for your voice with daily exercises and the right and wrong foods and liquids to consume.
Book I’m reading next week: Daily Rituals: How Artists Work by Mason Currey. I heard of this one on Tim Ferriss’s website, and I’m excited to listen to it. Currey describes the daily routines of writers, painters, and many other artists over the last several hundreds years.
