Seeds of Success

Portland, ME, May 22, 2013 – Former college lacrosse coach John Brubaker, the award-winning author of The Coach Approach, takes readers on an enlightening and transformational journey to find their purpose and develop their leadership performance in his new book, Seeds of Success: A Leader, His Legacy, and The Lessons Learned. (Sport of Business Publishing; May 2013; $19.95; 978-0-9850671-1-3)

Seeds of Success introduces readers to lacrosse coaching legend Morgan Randall and his protégé a young, emerging leader Jack Burton. The book takes you on a yearlong journey where Coach Randall introduces Jack to a Marine Corps recruiter, a CEO and a minister whom he refers to as the three wise men. These unlikely mentors teach Jack how to become a more authentic leader and show him that life is the curriculum, you are the student and everyone you meet has a lesson to teach.

Through the characters and the lessons in Seeds of Success, readers will acquire new ways to unlock their potential and bring out the best in others, by learning how to:

  • Discover your passion, purpose and unique ability
  • Focus on the process not the end result
  • Develop a life plan on the journey to finding success and fulfillment
  • Leave a legacy and make a lasting impact
  • Seek the rewards from work, not just the awards at work

Though Seeds of Success is a fictional story, it is based on Brubaker’s relationship with his coaching mentor who died of blood cancer and the setting for the book is the Philadelphia suburbs. With this in mind, the HEADstrong Foundation became a natural charitable partner. The HEADstrong Foundation’s mission is to carry on the legacy and vision of founder Nicholas E. Colleluori through advocating, fundraising and supporting those affected by blood cancers and those working towards eliminating it.

The book is now available at bookstores and online. When you order online at using discount code RHJEADCJ a portion of the proceeds will go to the HEADstrong Foundation.
