Positive Athlete In Sports: Yolanda Moore


I had the pleasure of co-hosting an on air interview with Cleanfreefun.com, Jackie Waller, yesterday evening. Our VERY special guest? Ole Miss Alum; 2 time WNBA Champion with the Houston Comets (1997,1998); named SEC Women’s Basketball Great (2012); first African American head coach of Mississippi Association of Independent Schools and Heritage Academy of 48yrs (2011); inspiration to at risk youth, stay at home moms, and struggling athletes; and author of “You Will Win If You Don’t Quit”….Yolanda Moore.

Ms Yolanda Moore’s belief is in ‘dreaming big and relentlessly pursuing your goals with passion’ and what you speak is very powerful. She has dedicated her life to teaching others how to reach their goals. When I asked her how she incorporates this belief as a mother, she explained that she encourages her children to strive for anything they want in life. She stated that she even advised her children NOT to play basketball because she played but to do it if that is what is their passion, their goal in life. Ms. Moore has not only talked about her beliefs and standards for success, but she lives by these same standards whole heartedly. Her book, “You Can Win If You Don’t Quit” is not only an autobiography, but a road map and guide to help obtain your personal success. The foundation of it all…Don’t let ANYTHING get in your way of your dreams, your passion, your goals…DON’T… GIVE…. UP!!!
