Newest Members Of The Small Fish Business Coaching Team
A couple of months ago I was lucky enough to have been accepted into the Forest BNI Chapter located in Sydney’s north. Apart from being involved with excellent group of business leaders that I am now proud to be a part of, I just happened to be in the right place at the right time.
Time warp back 20 years. Actually make that 30. I played my first game of basketball after being subtly advised that rugby league may not be the way to go. I found my first ever love in basketball and I am passionate about her to this very day. The most important admission at this point is that I am only 175cm (176cm on a good day) tall. There were never any talent scouts lambasting me for being too tall. Having defied the odds, I had a very successful junior career that lead very briefly into senior representative involvement with the Wollongong Hawks.
Coming to the realisation that I would never play professional basketball, I quickly decided that I needed to own my own team to stay involved in the National Basketball League. I have been striving to reach this goal ever since……..without much luck.
Getting back to right place at the right time. A couple of months ago Melissa Fisher of Piemonte Café Restaurant in Terry Hills, put it to us all at our weekly BNI breakfast, that she was looking for sponsorship of her basketball team. I jumped at the chance. Not only was there finally an opportunity to almost own my own basketball team, there was a clear synergy between coaching small businesses and coaching of a sports team. They very kindly (maybe out of pity) asked me to be honorary coach.
So, the team formerly known as Ballin, are now the team to watch with their brand new Navy and White strip with Small Fish Business Coaching sponsorship as they go about demolishing the competition. A big thanks to the girls for getting the Small Fish brand out on to the basketball court with such style. Great job girls, remember it’s all about winning. Just kidding! Have fun and do Small Fish proud.
