Motivational Football Coach Jeff Young Signs Publishing Deal With CelebrityPress For New Business Book

Coach Jeff Young will team with CelebrityPress, a leading book publishing company, and several leading experts from various industries to release the new book, “Power Principles For Success – Volume 2.”

Lake Oswego, OR – February 27, 2015 Coach Jeff Young, inspirational writer and football coach, has joined a select group of business leaders from around the world, along with best-selling author and speaker, Brian Tracy, to co-write the forthcoming book titled, Power Principles for Success, Volume 2: America's PremierExperts® Share Their Biggest Success Secrets For a Life of Health, Wealth, Happiness and Prosperity. Nick Nanton, Esq. along with business partner, JW Dicks, Esq., the leading agents to Celebrity Experts® worldwide, recently signed a publishing deal with each of these authors to contribute their expertise to the book, which will be released under their CelebrityPress™ imprint.

Coach Jeff is an inspirational writer and motivational football coach. A former college running back and rock guitarist, Jeff began having trouble holding a guitar pick in 1983. This led to an Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (Lou Gehrig’s Disease) diagnosis and medical prognosis of death within three to five years. Thirty-one years later, not only does he continue to befuddle medical experts, but he has turned his tragedy into a triumphant role inspiring people the world over.

With arms, hands, and legs nearly useless, and a progressive and fatal neurological disorder hanging over his head, Jeff has spent three plus decades creatively developing ways to remain positive and optimistic. He learned just how individualistic happiness, motivation, and optimism are when he saw individuals getting everything they wanted in life and were still unhappy pessimists, while many in wretched circumstances remained cheerful optimists. He made it his mission to learn as much as he could about how to be happy, motivated, and optimistic, and to share this knowledge with as many others as possible.  He began sending out Jeff’s Inspirational Quotations, a biweekly inspirational email message of his findings and philosophy, and quickly received feedback from nearly every corner of the world in the form of praise and from those seeking advice.

Impressed with Jeff’s writings, in 2004, legendary high school football coach Steve Coury asked Jeff to join his coaching staff for motivational and inspirational reasons. When both saw the incredible impact his message had on the lives of Coury’s athletes, his role increased from a weekly inspirational letter to the team to include mentoring individual players and teaching leadership skills to team leaders. About Coach Jeff, Coury says, “I have been coaching for 30 years with aspirations of making a difference in young men’s lives. Coach Young has a profound impact on every life he touches.” After many bitter “close, but no cigar” playoff losses, in 2011, amidst tears of joy, the state championship trophy was presented to Coach Jeff in one of the great moments in Oregon high school football history.
