While in Detroit this past weekend I took some down time to check out the Motown Museum- Hitsville, USA!! As I was learning more about Mr. Gordy, how he inspired artists and built the Motown empire I couldn't help but see the correlation in mentoring, teaching, coaching and building a team. I think this quote speaks to the idea of helping provide the tools for children to maximize their potential and reach for greatness in any endeavor.
“Every day I watched how a bare metal frame rolling down the line would come out the other end a spanking brand new car. Maybe I could do the same thing with my music ... create a place where a kid could walk in one door an unknown and come out another door a star.” -Berry Gordy Jr.
So coaches, teachers and mentors...Maybe we can do the same with swimming...Let's start making more hits!
