Coaches, Pay Yourselves First – Cletus Coffey via Volt Athletics
“Coaching is a selfless career.”
This couldn’t ring more true, as we’re putting our heart and soul into making others better, both on and off the field.

This book is valuable for strength coaches as well as team coaches who want to continue to evolve professionally, personally, financially and creatively. Yes, coaching athletes. Yes, planning sessions. Yes, periodizing. Yes, giving speeches.
There’s more to coaching than what goes into the athletes. This is an excellent read if you want to explore the malleability and opportunity your coaching career has to offer.
