Coaching for Coaches

Young athletes spend a significant part of their life on the field of play. Much of what they learn from sports and coaches impact the way they participate and lead teams over the rest of their lives. This creates a serious responsibility for coaches (many times fathers and mothers of players) to exude and instill values of leadership, teamwork, fair play, hard work and dedication.

Coaching for Coaches is an online application that provides two important offerings:

1) Advice and articles on a broad range of coaching related topics including: leadership, running efficient practices, coaching through adversity & success as well as many other topics.

2) Playbooks and strategies for success on game day

“The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand.”

-- Vince Lombardi

“Life is ten percent what happens to you and ninety percent how you respond to it.”

-- Lou Holtz

“Setting a goal is not the main thing. It is deciding how you will go about achieving it and staying with that plan.”

--Jerry West

“Don't measure yourself by what you have accomplished, but by what you should have accomplished with your ability.”

--John Wooden

Internet tv search website l.jpg
Internet TV Search Website retailers or wholesalers

Internet TV is taking off at the moment

  • But what TV websites are there?

    You want to download a movie

  • But which website has it?

    Your kids are watching video’s on the web

  • But how do you know which websites to block?

    The Internet TV search website searches and classifies Internet video streams.

    Subsequently the user can search for downloadable Movies or videos and Live video streams.

Slide17 l.jpg

iWish.com retailers or wholesalers

Company/Product Concept: How many times have you stumbled through a mall searching for another mediocre gift? Have you faked an enthusiastic smile and “thank you” for yet another snow globe? Why should brides and expecting mothers reap all the benefits of gift registries? iWish.com is an everyday registry that tracks your “wish list” including links to stores, product pictures, prices, etc; so you give what they want, and you get what you want. iWish.com also emails reminders and gift suggestions before you miss your anniversary...again

Consumers: All PC users, all ages; initially focus on people currently using US-based bridal or baby registries. Marketing should be aimed at men who are less accustomed to gift registries and therefore would be more willing to be loyal to iWish.com

Collaborators: Department stores, wholesalers, OEMS (Bloomingdales, Macy’s, Best Buy, Sony, etc.)

Competitors: www.myregistry.com is a cool site with a similar concept. They focus more on wedding and baby shower registries however. Others include www.findgift.com, www.mygiftlist.com as well as retailers like Target and Crate and Barrel.

Placement and Promotion: On-line website; link to collaborators’ sites, web advertising, print ads with catalogs. There are a number of gift registries in existence, but other than those focused on weddings and babies they have little-to-no public visibility. Marketing would be a key component in differentiating iWish.com through brand awareness and positive association.

Price/ Revenue sources: Free site for users. Sponsored by stores, retailers, etc. Revenue from advertisements and “commissions” from referrals for purchases.

Start-Up Requirements: Low capital, short time to market. Start-up costs comprise designing and launching website – estimated $5-10K. On-going costs include web hosting fees, Google fees, maintenance fees… burn rate = $500 - 1,000/mo.

Making solar power more accessible for homeowners l.jpg

  • Photovoltaic solar cell technology has improved, while production volumes have increased. As a result, costs are dropping.

  • At the same time, nearly all homeowners have noticed significant increases in their utility bills

  • We are nearing the point where home solar power has a short term financial payback – on top of the already compelling environmental benefits

  • Adding solar power to your home today is possible – but it is complex,and costly

  • Our company will:

    • Identify low cost solar cell producers, and collaborate to produce easy to install, scalable panel systems

    • Develop or license a plug in system to:

      • Route needed solar energy to the home

      • Route & sell excess energy back to the power company

    • Create geography-driven configuration menus to aid homeowners in system size and design appropriate for their locale and power needs

    • Leverage available tax credits internally for development, and externally for marketing

    StatsMonkey.com production volumes have increased. As a result, costs are dropping.(Domain Name Available)

    • The Idea:

      In the world of the Blogosphere, MySpace and other social information sites, we will create a simple mechanism for people to post event statistics from anywhere and track them online. People can set up profiles for specific events of interest and send info via the web, text messages, email, then use StatsMonkey to aggregate, analyze, graph and syndicate info to personal sites.

    • The Value:

      With well over 100 million bloggers and MySpace users, StatsMonkey has a large target customer base. Initial revenues come from targeted advertising based on user profiles and interests. As usage volume increases, preferred revenue-generating relationships can be pursued by other destination sites like Yahoo, etc.

    • The Buzz:

      Like other social networking sites, StatsMonkey has the potential for viral adoption by combining ubiquitous access, simplicity and low barriers for use with entertainment and functional value.

    • The Project:

      • Easy to Implement

      • Low capital requirements

      • Broad applicability

    • No, I don’t play…but consider this:

      • Internet poker = Multi-billion $ market

      • Very fragmented

      • Knucklehead makes a killing; prop players

      • ‘big brother’ effect + irrational market = there’s an arbitrage opportunity

    • So, why not a company that:

      • Does some math…

        • Controls risk…pools risky assets (players) to lower the beta

        • Structures incentives for maximum shareholder benefit

      • Creates economies of scale, gains competitive advantage

      • Finds ‘studs(ettes)’ who excel but lack the risk tolerance or capital to pursue their dream job

      • Is legal

      • Benefits society: 100% goes to a good cause
