“The Winning Playbook” Offers Strategies for Life On and Off the Field

The WInning Playbook

Rob Welsh

Jonathan Scott

THE WINNING PLAYBOOK by Rob Welsh and Jonathan Scott

A fantastic book that transcends the understanding of wealth. It’s about so much more than money—it’s about personal growth, faith, and attitude.”

— Bob Beaudine, President/CEO and bestselling author

UNITED STATES, August 8, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — We’ve all heard the stories—a professional athlete signs for $2 million a year and the next thing we know he’s working in the off season to make ends meet. Financial empowerment experts Rob Welsh and Jonathan R. Scott know this problem only too well, and realize that pro players aren’t alone—too few people understand how to make the most of the rewards of hard work and what they must know to get what they want from life.

That’s why they’ve written THE WINNING PLAYBOOK: Strategies for Life on and off the Field (Indigo River Publishing; August 16, 2022). It’s time to stop talking about wealth management and start talking about wealth empowerment, not just for athletes, but for everyone. And Welsh and Scott have made it their mission to teach people how to play the long game.

Welsh, a CEO, former U.S. Marine and minister, and Scott, a former NFL offensive tackle and financial empowerment expert, are passionate about their mission. They want to empower people at every level, whether they are punching a clock from 9 to 5, pounding keys in a corner office, working their way up to the pros or being drafted into the big leagues—and put them in the driver’s seat.

In THE WINNING PLAYBOOK, they share the tools that will allow people to control the money they earn and steer the direction of their own life, including how to:

• Understand Paychecks and How to Keep It
• Become Financially Empowered
• Hone a Business Mindset
• Win When Life Happens
• Build a Team
• Learn the Rules of Money
• Access Hidden Tax and Financial Strategies

Embracing a better and healthier way to think about money means changing one’s mindset. Too many people cling to what they know. THE WINNING PLAYBOOK shows how by changing the way people think they can change their beliefs, which creates actions that bring results. This essential guide shows people the play-by-play for how to succeed on and off the field.

The book is generating much praise.

“The Winning Playbook should be required reading for all athletes and families transitioning to professional sports. Rob and Jonathan do a masterful job of taking their areas of expertise and combining them to provide critical information that is sure to benefit others.” —Mack Brown, head football coach, University of North Carolina, College Football Hall of Fame inductee

“Financial empowerment at its finest! This book gives priceless insight to creating true financial wealth. This is a gem in its own right. Definitely a must read!” —Logan Stout, bestselling author, keynote speaker, Founder/CEO of IDLIFE and Dallas Patriots

THE WINNING PLAYBOOK is available on Amazon and other popular retail outlets where books are sold.

ROB WELSH is a former U.S. Marine and minister with more than 17 years of experience in the financial industry. Welsh has trained and mentored thousands of people on leadership, business, personal growth with a key emphasis on empowering and adding value to others. He lives in Dallas with Miyuki, his wife of 35 years, and his son Kenny.

JONATHAN RAY SCOTT is from Dallas, Texas. A 10-year veteran of the National Football League as an offensive tackle, Scott was also a member of the 2005 National Champion Texas Longhorns football team. His life off the field has been as successful as his time on the field with experience in real estate, finance, education, coaching, executive leadership, and the music industry. He recently became the co-owner of a private equity group.

Fans of Schindler’s List Need Look No Further Than This New World War II Romantic Thriller

Shadow Song

Anita Morrish

SHADOW SONG by Anita Morrish

Will stay with the reader long after the book is finished. A must-read for lovers of World War II fiction.”

— Book Review Directory

UNITED STATES, August 8, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — All The Light We Cannot See meets Schindler’s List in Shadow Song, a gripping, heart-wrenching World War II tale of strength of will in even the most harrowing of circumstances. Based on accounts of those who were there, debut author Anita Morrish spins a story filled with adversity, perseverance and inspiration that begs the question: In the face of evil, how far would you go to do what is right?

It’s 1943, and although Mussolini has been dethroned and the Allies creep ever closer, the Third Reich still occupies and controls Italy. For the average citizen, every day is a deadly game of balance, as regardless of whether it’s the fascists or resistance you find yourself on the wrong side of, you might not live to play again.

As war rages across Italy, Rome’s inhabitants are ruled with an iron fist, placed under strict curfew and under constant surveillance. While some join the resistance, Francesca, a talented art student, finds work at Rome’s opera house. Unfortunately, even at this seeming refuge from the fear and violence, nothing is as it seems.

Meanwhile, Carlo, a doctor, returns unexpectedly to Rome, unable to escape his past. Unbeknownst to them, Francesca and Carlo’s destinies are irrevocably intertwined, and whether they like it or not, the pair will have to work together if they want to survive — for spies and rebels aren’t the only threats lurking in the city’s shadows.

Filled to the brim with evocative prose, immersive historical detail, characters that come to life and a gripping, unpredictable narrative, Shadow Song is, at its heart, a story that asks questions. What’s the difference between simply existing and truly thriving? What does it mean to set aside one’s personal desires for a cause greater than oneself? What is it really that makes us human? Morrish’s fresh, thought-provoking answers will have readers thinking long after the final page.

The book already is drawing heavy praise.

The Book Review Directory writes, “Shadow Song…will stay with the reader long after the book is finished. Anita Morrish’s story is filled with inspiration that people can act for what is right in the face of adversity and tragic circumstances. A must-read for lovers of World War II fiction.”

The Prairies Book Review calls it “a brilliant story of courage, resilience and love …Fans of historical drama will be enthralled.”

“This historical tale is a tapestry that weaves many threads,” says Lovereading.co.uk.

Shadow Song is available on Amazon and other popular retail outlets where books are sold.

Anita Morrish graduated in Jurisprudence (Law) from Oxford University and went on to become a musician. She has spent a large amount of time in Rome, which is where she began to research and write Shadow Song. Her website natedea.co.uk contains more information, including articles and photos about Rome and the real-life background to Shadow Song.
