May is Drowning Prevention Awareness Month

By | 2017-10-24T13:42:02+00:00 May 2nd, 2017|

We are all humans. We do make mistakes and yes, it can happen to you. No matter how careful we are, all it takes is a 30-second distraction to send us into panic mode because we cannot locate a child. Even worse is not being able to locate them when there is a body of [...]

Being a Product of the System

By | 2017-10-24T13:42:02+00:00 March 29th, 2017|

For the past decade, I have been hard at work creating a system that will provide many advantages to the swimmers and families that choose to be a part of it. A system that can provide quality and appropriate programming for infants and beyond. Evolution Swim Academy has been successful in producing safer swimmers and [...]

Find Your Freedom At Evolution Swim Academy

By | 2017-10-24T13:42:02+00:00 January 31st, 2017|

You may have noticed over the past few weeks that we have been using the catch phrase “Find Your Freedom.” If you look at our social media channels or on our website homepage, “Find Your Freedom” is prominently displayed as a graphic of one of our students taking flight. The same graphic can be seen [...]

Americans Love Swimming

By | 2017-10-24T13:42:03+00:00 August 31st, 2016|

Did you watch the Summer Olympic Games in Rio? You may not have watched as much as I did but I bet you caught at least a bit of the “show?” After watching the Games, one thing is for sure, Americans love swimming. I felt it more this year than in years past. Even Ryan [...]

Turnover and Working with the Millennial Generation

By | 2017-10-24T13:42:03+00:00 March 30th, 2016|

I have a dilemma. We have too much turnover in my company. We hire young, energetic people that are from the millennial generation, for the most part. We hire the very people that Senator Bernie Sanders speaks to about free public university. These good people are defined, loosely, as people who were born from the [...]

Teaching Safer Swimmers before we Teach Fluid Swimmers

By | 2017-10-24T13:42:03+00:00 March 15th, 2016|

Between Memorial Day and Labor Day, over 200 kids between the ages of 1-14 drowned last year in the United States.  Of those, 143 of them were under the age of 5. California had the 3rd highest incidence of drowning and to be even more specific, Orange County had the highest rate in California. Drowning [...]

Connecting With Clients

By | 2017-10-24T13:42:03+00:00 February 3rd, 2016|

This past week I was reminded on two separate occasions that connecting with my clients is not so much about selling as it is about connecting. The first conversation I had was with a client who was patiently watching her daughter transition from being a timid and fearful student to a confident student ready to transition to semi-private [...]

My Kindergartner and my “aha” Moment

By | 2015-11-04T13:42:28+00:00 October 1st, 2015|

This year, my 5-year old daughter Valentina is attending kindergarten. Normal enough right? Not so much. Although having a 5-year old cry on her first day of school is nothing out of the ordinary and sure, her crying makes it super difficult for mom and I to let go, we understand that it is part [...]

School is back in session…Now what?

By | 2015-11-04T13:42:41+00:00 August 31st, 2015|

Wow, that was fast! The summer break, or lack thereof, was the shortest in history and now, many of our swim students are back at school and the school year scheduler/calendar is in place again. With so much going on during the school year, it is easy to overlook an important activity that should be [...]
