I asked Justin, who resides in Arizona, to give a rundown on his projects and the numerous projects that keep him busy.
He broke it down this way:
I am doing a ton of things right now and I am very excited about all that I have going.
1. Chase My Passion
2. "No You Can't, Yes I Can" book
3. Passion4ball Basketball
I have created the Chase My Passion website which focuses on motivating others to chase their Passion in life. The thought is to provide motivation, inspiration, public speaking, and I am launching the new book via "Chase My Passion." Basketball was always my passion and I was lucky enough to follow my dreams and do what I love. I continue to use my passion to open up doors and it has provided me more and more opportunities even after I have finished playing. I have always wanted to inspire others to follow whatever dreams they have no matter what stands in their way.
I have written and we are now working on the illustrations for the new book now "No You Can't, Yes I Can." The book is really a story of my life and how I have had to overcome obstacles and challenges to reach my dreams. Growing up in a small town, playing at the next level, overcoming cancer, playing after my battle with cancer, and even being able to write a book that I have always wanted to do. The book is going to be for children and the message is if you want something, go after it.
Don't let others knock you down, tell you that you can't do it, or let anything stand in your way. In the story the boy is constantly faced with challenge after challenge, but he constantly tells himself "Yes he can," and then through each obstacle he succeeds. The Jimmy V Foundation has given me the rights to use the name and logo, and 10 percent of the profits will go to the Jimmy V Foundation. I am also planning on going to hospitals to read it to kids and others who are going through a battle (similiar to my cancer battle) and I also want to do some readings at schools as well.
There aren't enough hours in the day to accomplishment all that Allen want to get done.
Let him explain it:
I have created a non profit basketball club called Arizona Passion4ball. The goal of this club is to provide youth athletes opportunities to earn college scholarships via the game of basketball. We focus on the fundamentals of the game of basketball, while also teaching the fundamental life skills. We have an opportunity to teach kids about loyalty, hardwork, teamwork, competitiveness, desire, overcoming obstacles, time management, discipline, etc. We teach this to them in the sense of being compeititve on the basketball court and since we have their attention, because they have so much passion for the game, we have a forum to share this to help develop their personal life. Our teams then go and compete in tournaments in front of scouts, writers, and college coaches in efforts to earn schilarships at the next level. I would say that about 80 percent of my kids end up earning a scholarship at some level ( Junior College, NAIA, D3, D2, or D1).
He had much more to say:
The most exiting thing I have going on is a new company that I have created called Pathwayze. We are at the infinite stages of this project and we are still keeping it low key and under wraps until we are ready to launch. With this said, it is best explained as an athletic social community aimed and help persons down their path in life. Every person has a path to success, how did you get there and how do you plan on continuing down that Path. Without getting into any details, that is really what the basis of the company is about...
We are very very very excited about this project and we think it is going to be huge. We have some big players in the States on board and we have a lot of great resources to make this happen. We are hoping to launch in the next three months...
His closing message?
We are inviting people to come to the site and share their "No you can't, yes I can" story and also share their path in life to their success or their path that has lead them to where they are now.
