Love the idea of focusing on one platform at a time...a laser is more focused than a spray. Also, +Sunny Lenarduzzi is the best at responding via social media even though she has an army of followers!

Why the Lakers Chose D'Angelo Russell #lakers   #nba  
The Los Angeles Lakers decided to go small and select D’Angelo Russell from Ohio State University, but probably not for the reasons you might think. Jahlil Okafor from Duke University appeared to be the favorite and most fans were shocked by the pick initially, but after hearing the context which Mitch Kupchak used it validates […]

Grooming Ryan West: The Lakers Succession Plan #lakers   #nba  
Jerry West‘s handprints over the Golden State Warriors’ NBA Championship are vivid. From his threatening to step down if they traded Klay Thompson for Kevin Love to his personal interest in Harrison Barnes. West is the most respected consultant in the league and even though he is away from his beloved Lakers, his pulse still […]

The Golden State Warriors won the 2015 NBA Championship and a big reason is Head Coach Steve Kerr. Could Kerr be the next Phil Jackson?

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
