FORECHECK, BACKCHECK, PAYCHECK
Before we start, I need your help.
Please help with the survey. Here is the email I wanted to share with you:
I am delighted we met by phone and I am truly looking forward to staying connected!
I have created a short survey of 10 questions to gather info on how covid 19 quarantine is affecting remarried couples financially.
As you know well, divorce rates rise dramatically for second and third marriages. This survey simply seeks to find out if they experience any greater challenges because of dependence on ex-spouses and/or blended families.
Can you please distribute my invitation to your podcast audience / membership to invite clients, friends, colleagues to participate anonymously in the survey online?

ON WITH THE SHOW
My guest is a long time friend and a very respected youth hockey coach. Scott Maureaux (@scottmaureaux on IG) is not just a hockey coach, he is a teacher of life skills for the kids he comes in contact with.
Scott is also one of my mentors when it comes to blended families. He and his wife Julie have created a wonderful household for all of their kids. They both have kids from previous marriages. I have witnessed first hand how the relationship between all of the kids has blossomed.
I wanted to learn how he learned to be a very compassionate coach and how they built their family unit.
One of the people he mentions is a young man named Tate. When I was coaching Tate and one of Scott's sons Jason was part of our coaching staff. Tate is someone who always has a smile on his face and loves helping the kids on and off the ice. Scott has built a network of coaches that are there for our kids. They understand that hockey or sports, in general, will build many life skills.
I hope that you will enjoy my conversation with Scott and I hope other coaches in youth sports will learn something from this episode. One example is the fact that you do not need to yell at kids.
In the intro, I talked about my thoughts of the way of the world. These are just my feelings and I hope you are not offended but if you are, oh well.
Finally, here is our newest member of our family. His name is Otis and very much a puppy. You will definitely hear him in this episode.
