This isn’t about skating at all, but it is about working doggedly and hard at something until you master it. My friend Kevin worked as an unsung writer for years, but he kept at it. He met and married a wonderful woman and they had a great kid and all the while he worked at a fulltime job, as one does, while slogging away at his own work whenever he had time.
Guess what happened? He wrote an amazing book, which has been published and is being incredibly well-reviewed. Enjoy watching him read a bit from it, and then go get yourself a copy!
