In this episode, I am privileged to conduct a second interview with Dr. Jim Burson.  Click here to hear the previous interview with Dr. Burson.

To listen to the show, click on one of the following:

In our first interview, we shared Dr. Burson's incredible journey and discussed his recently published an extraordinary book The Golden Whistle:  Going Beyond:  The Journey To Coaching Success.  His career included teaching academic classes, playing and coaching a variety of sports at the collegiate level, assisting fellow Ohioan Bob Knight with the 1984 U.S. Olympic team, being featured in Sports Illustrated as the "Great Disseminator" of the famed Princeton Offense, serving as president of the National Association of Basketball Coaches, and serving as a consultant and business owner continuing to serve the game. 

Dr. Burson has a book coming out soon called "Daily Nuggets", which is a way readers can engage the ten golden nuggets on a daily basis.  Dr. Burson talked about how The Golden Whistle has increased his connections and opportunities to speak and coach.

We went into extensive detail about how important it is to be a continuous learner and some strategies on how to apply what a reader learns.


In this interview, I had the pleasure of talking with Larry Huggins, the owner of Eastern Ohio Sports complex and a partner with Three Leaf Productions.

To listen to the show, click on one of the following:

The Huggins family is well-known in Ohio for excellence in basketball.  Larry's father Charlie Huggins is a legendary Ohio high school Hall of Fame coach.  Brother Bob Huggins is the current head coach at West Virginia University with an incredible record as a college basketball coach after playing at Ohio University and West Virginia.  Brother Harry played at Rice University, and Larry excelled on the court for The Ohio State Buckeyes.

During Charlie Huggins' coaching career, he developed the Eastern Ohio Sports Complex in Sherrodsville, Ohio with reknowned Pennsylvania high school basketball coach Ed McKluskey.  In 2000, Larry bought this business from his father and talks about the history and development of the complex.

Larry Huggins has had remarkable success as a person, family man, athlete, and businessman.

During this interview, Larry will talk about these highlights:

    • core values of hard work, compassion, being humble
    • his daily routine
    • understanding that our purpose is to serve God and others
    • 3 keys to business success
    • playing for his father in high school and at The Ohio State University
    • "The Ritual" that his father used in practice every day
    • the importance of trying to be the best
    • some of the keys to brother Bob Huggins' coaching success

Larry Huggins can be connected with in the following ways:
