Season Grades: Jeremy Lin #nb   #lakers   #jeremylin  
In a forgettable season, acquiring Jeremy Lin from Houston with the addition of a late first-round draft pick was supposed to be something Lakers fans could get excited about. Lin definitely has his die-hard fans, but overall his play this season was inconsistent and disappointing. Lin averaged 11 points, 4 assists and 2 rebounds shooting […]

How big are your dreams? Maybe a better question is how long will your dreams take to accomplish? Life can be rough and as we get older our dreams tend to shrink in size…why is that? Disappointment. Failure. Rejection. No one likes to experience those…

The first time I went on the Soaring Over California ride at Disney’s California Adventure I was in awe. Most of the scenic icons in the Golden State I’d seen before, but not at a bird’s eye view. In addition to the sights, they added smells and sounds…

Introduction
Author. I wrote a book based on my transition from Youth Pastor to Entrepreneur called The Startup Church. Jumping from the non-profit world to owning a business was a challenging, but the experience gives me credibility to help others make career changes.

Blogger. Two of my favorite hobbies are: leadership and sports. I’ve been able to combine both by writing for Lakers Nation, The Lake Show Life and Game 7 Network. I also turned my personal blog into a podcast called Winsight, which uses leadership in sports examples to help you win at the game of life.

Speaker. Nothing is more compelling than a great storyteller. I speak monthly at churches, schools and networking events. I get my inspiration from other exceptional communicators, especially through TED Talks.

I’m a Certified Professional Coach, have a MA in Organizational Leadership and a BA in Psychology.

I love connecting with people and exploring new opportunities/partnerships. Feel free to contact me at scott@growingforward.net
