What People Are Saying About Start With Your Gift:

There are a number of valuable ideas in Start With Your Gift that I will be borrowing to help improve our career services program. In our emphasis on mentoring, we now understand that this works best when it’s organic and grows “bottom-up.” Since your book approaches mentoring from this orientation, it provides a useful player-centered framework to build upon. Start With Your Gift is a book to keep handy well beyond the early stages of life’s journey. Well done!
— Andy Phillips, Cornell Lacrosse Alum and Manhasset Youth Lacrosse Volunteer
Wish I could have read your book years ago and had the wisdom to put its strategies into action. There is still time to apply it to my life but my boys will know the book well and at an early age. It provides principles on how to handle their college recruiting and selection process; focusing on finding what their gifts are and working from there.
— Bill Edell, Former UMASS, MLL and NLL lacrosse player and Hall of Famer
Great read! I loved all the lacrosse anecdotes
— Alex Gray, Teacher and Coach, Cardigan Mountain School
I like the comparison of your life’s journey to that of overhauling and realigning your car. This is a great read.
— Maura Rodino, Natick Parent
Your book showed me what my gift is and gave me a plan to monetize it.
— Robert Roque, Babson College Student Athlete
