Let the Good Times begin

It's officially vacation time for this Momager and her crew.  Everybody deserves to get away and we are taking get away to the ultimate on this trip.  I'm going to be signing off for the next few days to recharge my batteries in the island of Aruba.  Ever been there?  It's like amazeballs and when you leave you wonder why the heck you got on the plane.  Get there if you've never been.  I'm also having the most spectacular traveling experience on jetBlue.  I mean like this is the VIP (only way we roll) of airlines and that sleep kit for my overnight napping on the red eye to NYC can never be duplicated.

Now on to the next flight and hopefully the kiddos will stop asking, "How long will it take?"  I mean can't they read the signs just like me?  They are Honor Roll students right?  Ugghhh kids sometimes.  But I'm sure once we land, get by the water and some fruity drinks -- for me-- then all that traveling angst will be bye bye.  Hey that's a suggestion for jetBlue a MUTE button for moms traveling alone with kids.  EiYiYi!

Until next week ya'll I'll be chillin' and reading lots of magazines and books.  Hope you are enjoying life to the fullest.

PS.  Vacation mentioned on Social Media Disclaimer - If you are reading this post and think you can break into my crib since I'm on vacation I'd suggest you think again.  I know people that know people!

Curvy Momager's Court | 10,000 Hours

You think your baller works out to the max?  Check out this YouTube series 10,000 Hours shot, directed and narrated by Devin Williams.  Devin trains Washington State player Trevor Dunbar and in these vids features two brothers, The Wongs, destined to make it even though they measure under 6'0".  The workouts = intense, throw up sessions are almost mandatory....what will you do to be great?  Put in the work or talk about it?

I am officially hooked and can't wait to watch catch up on the next epi.  If you are a fan of the game, player or Momager you'll love it.  Drop a comment and let me know what you think.

Mom School | The List

It is NCAA viewing season and all the ballers are praying [picture emoji praying hands here] scouts come and watch their games so they can reach the college of their dreams.  Recently someone said to me, "It's not the college the player wants it's the college that is going to want them."  I did some thinking about that one and understand the mechanics of that situation but also realize that putting in the work can change the outcome of any situation.  So Momagers, in this edition of #MomSchool I share with you one of the first steps you and your player need to take, printing off the list of schools from the NCAA website.  Now don't let this list overwhelm you, it's HUGE but you can organizing by region, class and location which helps. That way if your kid is really looking at D1 you can concentrate there or if they only want to be in a certain state you can concentrate there.

After you've printed the list sit down together, identify the schools of interest and research them, see if they would be a good fit for your player.  Pull information on:

  • Coaches
  • Degree programs 
  • Past players
  • Scouting reports
  • Players that have done well at the school, 
  • Positions that will be up for grabs (i.e. graduating players, possible early exits)

Please make sure the player is involved in the process, it's their journey and they need to show some interest in doing the work OFF the court too.  Alright now breathe and pick your top 5 - 10.  Take into consideration that you should select schools from each division, just a tip, the more options the better.  Now take a break and get ready for the next edition of #MomSchool!  Oh wait before I forget use technology to your advantage by setting up Google Alerts on your favorite school programs.  If you need assistance on how to do this email me and I'll give you the assist [sorry had to throw in some bball lingo], EMAIL ME:

The Momager Is In | Mom on Fiyah with Mikita Burton

She is the Never Home Stay at Home Mom and I originally met her on the Cocktails and Conversation radio show where she came on as a guest.  She's had a few changes and I caught up with her to find out what's been going on.
