Makes Winning Easy! Introducing world-renowned dropout expert and philanthropist, Stephán “Coach Q” Askew, and his latest book How easy is it to win? Is it something you’re born with? Or can it be taught? In the new book “The Mindset of a Champion,” renowned dropout expert and philanthropist, Stephán “Coach Q” Askew, teaches his readers that winning is fundamental. This self-motivating booklet (23 pp., $5.99) makes it easy for any young athlete, or student of life, to understand and apply simple principles to beat the everyday challenges they may face.

one of Essence Magazine’s “Do Right Men” (2006), just to mention a couple. Currently, Coach Q is marketing other motivational products such as his first manuscript, “Destined to Succeed,” and his latest audio product, To My Young Men. Additionally, Coach Q will continue hosting his national youthfocused radio show, Ask Coach Q Radio, and the soon-to-come television show, Teens Talk.

By comparing the five starting players of a basketball team to five characteristics, Coach Q’s teaching method displayed in “The Mindset of a Champion” is simply brilliant. “Just like it takes five key players to form the starting team, it will take five key characteristics to make the most important team: Life’s Starting Five.” This short read is equipped with an instructional workbook that will challenge the young reader to be confident in developing a purpose and plan for their lives even when the odds are against them. Whether purchased for a faith-based or secular youth group, summer camp, school organization, or individual, “The Mindset of a Champion” proves to be a winner! Coach Q is the Founder and CEO of the Q Foundation, Inc., which is best known for mentoring, youth athletics, after-school and summer programs, as well as GED and job placement assistance.
