My coaching friends tend to speak more to building bridges, including paying more attention to the legitimate concerns of those who voted for T…

Why I Voted for Donald Trump

On election night, I sat with my iPad watching intently as the numbers rolled in minute by minute. I had tabs up for all the key states, but I was watching Florida very closely. Trump was behind but then started to claw his way back. Still, pundits were saying that Broward County would likely go for…
