Baryshnikov is considered to be the greatest male ballet dancer of all time. The strength and power of his dancing embody all the reasons that ballet training can be such a powerful tool. If ever you thought that ballet was only for little girls, his performance in the 1985 movie White Nights will change your mind. 

*Watch the movie White Nights and then enroll in a ballet class.

SOUL

Frederick Douglass “Fritz” Pollard was the first African American coach in the NFL – his influence lives on, thanks in part to the effort of the Fritz Pollard Alliance (FPA), which promotes equal NFL coaching and front office opportunities for minorities.

*Think of donating to the FPA to support minorities as they prepare for jobs within the NFL.

Rooney never held a “regular” job in his life, except for a half day. He worked one morning in a steel mill, then quit. “I never even went back for my paycheck,” he later recalled.

*Never holding a “regular” job is what 365DOLF is all about. Find your passion like Art Rooney and become legendary at it. Go Steelers!

My dream job would be to own the Pittsburgh Steelers. What would yours be?

I was born in Northwestern Pennsylvania and lived in a trailer park. I was raised by very conservative and religious (Wesleyan Methodist) parents. By some miracle I graduated college and moved to Florida. I have been a public school teacher since 1995. I have 7 years until I can retire. I was married in 1999 and divorced in 2001. I remarried in 2017 to Kate - 21 years my junior. Some of my life experiences as a 46-year-old, white American male, will come through in my writing, but the majority of this daily journey will be dedicated to improving myself, and hopefully you as well.
