About Coach Traub
Why does a person who performed so well one day do so poorly on another? How can I find consistency?
If, as Zig Ziglar said, both bathing and motivation are recommended every day, how do I stoke my own fire?
Why does one person break down under pressure while another breaks through?

Coach Traub says:
"I am honored that enough people appreciate my work that I am able to work from home and spend a lot of time with my family. I have a beautiful wife and four spunky, wonderful children, but of course that was not always the case. I coached college baseball as a bachelor for thirteen years. I got to work with amazing people at The University of Virginia, Brevard College, Presbyterian College, Emory University, and Cedar Valley College. While these teams generally did well, including some high GPAs and school-record-setting seasons in 1995, 1996, 2001, and 2005, I faced plenty of adversity along the way. Sport gives that to us all, doesn't it?
One of the luckiest breaks in my career was that I landed a job in Brevard, NC in 1995, where Harvey Dorfman lived. He spent many hours both with the teams I coached and with me, personally. Despite the fact that I often did not need to call him because I new what he would say, each in-person visit led to multiple new insights. He was the master of drawing the "a-ha" moment out of people."
Today, Coach Traub lives in The Colony, TX with his wife, Nicole, and their children: Christopher is 13, Ariel and Carissa are 6, and Gregory is 4.
