“Continuing education will do numerous things for your program. First, your education will forever evolve, which keeps your program from becoming stale. If you just sit back on your laurels and think you have all the answers, you’re wrong. This industry is forever changing, and there’s nothing wrong with changing your mind.”~Jason Spray

The Real Deal. Great lecture from Jason Spray. He really tells it like it is. Getting started in this field is very difficult and some coaches tend to sugar coat the process of getting hired. Coach Spray lets you know exactly what you need to do to be successful, even if it means taking the hard road. This lecture isn’t just about getting jobs, it is about how to be a successful coach. If you follow his steps, you won’t have to worry about finding jobs, they will find you.
