I am an award-winning keynote speaker, corporate business leadership coach, eight-time New York Times Best-selling author and longtime Associate Editor for Sports Illustrated. As a speaker, I have worked with audiences as diverse as Fortune 500 companies, associations and leadership forums on the subject “What Makes the Great Ones Great.” I have written 27 books with, among others, Hall of Fame running back Walter Payton, UCLA basketball Coach John Wooden, baseball legends John Smoltz and Tug McGraw, and football stars Warrick Dunn and Michael Oher (featured in the movie The Blind Side). In 2013, I teamed up with Fox News anchor Brian Kilmeade to pen the NYT best-seller “George Washington’s Secret Six”. I currently live in Tallahassee, FL., where I own a political consulting business and a public relations firm.

I study high performers in sports for lessons in business leadership.
