From the interview
One man’s years of expertise is featured in “The Athlete Within You: A Mental Approach to Sports and Business.” Issaquah resident Mike Margolies wrote the book to provide skill sets to achieve dreams.
Margolies said he wanted to write a sports psychology book with stories that showcased the themes of his book.
“For a long time, I didn’t think I could be a writer,” he said. “Writing is hard. It took me a long time to find my voice that would engage people.”
The book was just made available for Kindle through Amazon.
Margolies has worked with thousands of athletes at all levels, in many different sports.
“It’s basically my journey working with athletes, with stories about how to achieve your dreams,” he said. “Everything we learn in the world of sports is relevant to business.”
