Bill Tym On Winners!

Every time Coach Tym writes an email I get a little giddy! I see it in the inbox and I know it will be good. I know there is going to be something pertinent in the text of his comments that I am going to be able to take away and use later. He is on my list of coaches to visit and spend some time with.  I am always learning and he is always teaching and as long as he will keep sending me emails I will keep putting them up for others to see. He is a one-of-a-kind coach and he is a treasure! Everyone should read more from Coach Tym!

But listen! One of the true great coaches of my time has to be Bill Tym. And at 72 he is still very much alive and kicking and teaching up in Nashville, TN. Here is a great email he recently sent to some of his students. It says it all and it is the way it should be. I asked him if I could reprint it and he gave me permission.
