Sean François – Coaching Kids The Right Way
I had the great pleasure of meeting Sean on a media trip when we were both covering the NBA All-Star game in New Orleans a few years back. Not only do each of our oldest daughters share the same name, we share a lot of the same interests. We are Star Wars nerds. He and I are both sneakerheads. We even root for the same sports teams. Sean is a fantastic father. Like me he has two daughters. He lends his time coaching his daughters’ sports teams. Sean helps to encourage his daughters to find their passions. He really takes the role of being a dad very seriously. Make sure you follow Sean on Twitter at @seanfrancois.
