Remember the movie "Coach Carter"?  It was based on the life of Ken Carter, a real-life coach who padlocked the doors of his high school gym and benched his entire basketball team until they brought their grades up.

In the movie, Samuel Jackson played the coach, but the real Ken Carter joined us via Skype Saturday morning to discuss his motivational speaking career and the Supplier Diversity and Innovative Small Business Conference at Mountain View College in Dallas he will be keynoting on Thursday, June 28.
