Nothing like a little success story to end the week on a high note. Patrick Philpot has taken my advice to heart and gotten his foot in the door with a nonprofit that raises funds for a college athletic department. You can read his post about how my advice helped him along the way. He was very generous to credit me, but he put in all the hard work! There are lots of people who want to work in sports, but only a small percentage actually put in the hard work.
