Remembering the Strength Coach
Author and motivational speaker Greg Smith, passed away last Thursday night. Known as the Strength Coach, Greg lived for more than 50 years with muscular dystrophy. I had the pleasure of meeting him at a youth disability conference in Orlando about ten years ago. Greg generously gave everyone in the audience a free copy of his memoir On a Roll: Reflections from America's Wheelchair Dude with the Winning Attitude, which eventually led to the publication of my own autobiography. To learn more about Greg Smith, a man who was truly "unabashed by disability," go to his website http://www.thestrengthcoach.com/.
