Pure Motivation Basketball Joins The Buzzworthy Family

Dallas Basketball TrainerBuzzworthy Basketball Marketing is pleased to announce that Pure Motivation Basketball has joined the family of basketball trainers determined to positively impact youth basketball across America.

Pure Motivation Basketball is headed up by Dallas Basketball Trainer Prescott Mack.  Prescott is best known as a kid who overcame many odds to achieve his dream of playing college basketball and now in becoming part of our elite basketball trainer family.  Many people told Prescott he was not good enough during his basketball career, but Prescott maintains that focused effort and skill development were foundations of his “Against All Odds” story and that he is dedicated to sharing that process and skill set with basketball players in every workout.

Prescott Mack is an experienced basketball trainer who played the game at Lubbock Christian University.  We are grateful to Mark Williams of Premier Basketball Tournaments and Recruiting Services for bringing Prescott to our attention.  We had the pleasure of meeting with both gentlemen at the Final Four in Dallas and having a very long conversation regarding philosophy, the current state of basketball training, and how we can help be a solution to basketball training moving forward.

Prescott is a humble but determined young man bent on making a difference in the basketball training world… and I would not bet against him.

With every new basketball training client we are faced with the opportunity to improve the life of a young person.

With every challenge that stands in our way, we can feel the pressure of knowing we are being watched and judged.

Our basketball based business is often judged by some unusual metrics.  Our bottom line often ignored.  And our choice of a profession is even laughed at by some.

Are we creating winners?  How do we measure success?  How do we design the daily activities of our business around success and winning?

Basketball Coach John Wooden breaks down the difference and some tips for us to create winners and success in our players, children, and ourselves.



“Those who are not looking for happiness are the most likely to find it, because those who are searching forget that the surest way to be happy is to seek happiness for others.” 

 Martin Luther King Jr. 

1.Basketball Training and Mentoring  Remember Coaches… we are honored and lucky to have the chance to mentor our young people every day.  Fill their emotional tanks.  Listen to your basketball players.  Tell them about similar decisions you faced in life.

2.  Share not only your successes but your struggles and mistakes.  Sharing your mistakes is often the lesson kids cherish most.  Being vulnerable can establish credibility.

3.  Mentoring is giving, but the rewards are amazing.  Be a go-giver.

4.  For profit basketball businesses have a duty to give back.  I work with about 100 families.  I need to not only mentor, but also need to provide mentoring opportunities for some of the CEOs, doctors, attorneys, principals, etc. whose kids I work with.  Connecting suitable mentors to kids is a powerful process.

5.  Remember, authority does not equal leadership.  True leaders are servants to their teams.   They mentor.



Richard Branson Quotes for Basketball EntrepreneursRichard Branson is one of the world’s best known billionaires and is the iconic leader of all things Virgin Brand.   We wondered, what advice might Richard Branson give to basketball entrepreneurs?   Here are some of his quotes we thought apply:


“Nobody else is going to start your business for you. 2013 is the time to put your ideas into action. Now is the time to do.”

“My interest in life comes from setting myself huge, apparently unachievable challenges and trying to rise above them.”

“A business has to be involving, it has to be fun, and it has to exercise your creative instincts.”

“You don’t learn to walk by following rules.  You learn by doing and by falling over.”

“My general attitude to life is to enjoy every minute of every day, I never do anything with a feeling of, “Oh God, I’ve got to do this today.”

“Do not be embarrassed by your failures, learn from them and start again.”

“So I’ve seen life as one long learning process. And if I see – you know, if I fly on somebody else’s airline and find the experience is not a pleasant one, which it wasn’t in – 21 years ago, then I’d think, well, you know, maybe I can create the kind of airline that I’d like to fly on.”

“My philosophy is that if I have any money I invest it in new ventures and not have it sitting around. ”


THANKS RICHARD BRANSON!  You are an inspiration to basketball entrepreneurs and entrepreneurs world wide.  I follow Richard as a thought leader on linkedin.com.  I recommend you give him a look as well.




marketing and bad christmas cardsDecember 21st rolled around and Austin Youth Basketball had not yet sent out our “corporate” Christmas cards.  Pictured at right is what we wanted to avoid.

Below is our video version of corporate communications/marketing during the Christmas season.   This solution can be found at  www.jibjab.com.  Cost was about $3 (membership at one dollar per month and $2 to download the video so we could post on our basketball training website.  If you are running behind this Holiday Season- you may want to take a peek at the options available at Jib Jab.

Advantages of this solution were:

  1. Time – I finished it in under 1 hour.
  2. Cost – way cheaper than buying cards
  3. More personal – less “corporate marketing” feel
  4. Fun – like our brand
  5. Saved us from missing deadline
  6. While hardly original – it was more unique
