Publisher's Summary

Amazon best seller in Mentoring & Coaching

In the summer of 2006, author Daron K. Roberts was just one year away from earning a law degree from his dream school: Harvard. But that summer, in the throes of a clerkship at a Texas law firm, Roberts had a revelation - he wanted something different. Very different. Daron Roberts wanted to be an NFL football coach.

After making the transition from Harvard Law student to NFL newbie, Roberts worked as a coach for the Kansas City Chiefs, Detroit Lions, West Virginia Mountaineers, and the Cleveland Browns. But he’s not forgotten how hard it was to take that first step in a new direction. In Call an Audible, Roberts shares his inspiring journey and reveals his playbook to help guide your next transition.

Great example of never giving up

This is a book is like the movie of Rudy for people who want to coach or do anything you dreamed of doing. How bad do you want something? This book explains the drive, passion and desire of his quest to be a coach. Good use of humor to offset the tough times. Really enjoyed the book.

SHARE THIS BOOK!

If you are reading this book, you must share! This book is a well written, fascinating account of the author's sacrifice and drive to achieve his dreams. Its that get in the door, forward thinking, always networking mentality that, if applied to all aspects of life (personal and career), would leave no room for failure. I have shared this book with young adults beginning their careers, friends looking to reinvent themselves, and employees needing an edge to set themselves apart from the competition. This book is motivating and inspiring. Everyone who reads it will benefit from the proven lessons for success the author highlights throughout the pages of this book. Take notes!

excellent book for any aspiring coach.

Darren quickly explains how to add value to an organization while building a skill set. The NFL is a difficult group to access as a non pro player. Breaking takes incredible sacrifice that cracks the will of most people from what I have read.

Amazing, Inspirational, Wonderfully Bold

I couldn’t stop listening to it. The level of transparency and realness was truly amazing. Thank you, Coach DKR, for sharing your story so far. You still have so much good to offer the world, and this story is a great beginning. You are reaching a network of people through this book who are poised on the balls of their toes, ready for something. You are still young (yes!) and positioned to harness all the love and goodness to create something good. You show through example that the world can become a better place through one hand holding another, one mind inspiring empowerment in another. This book makes you feel motivated and inspired to never stop chasing your dream even if you have to take steps that pay next to none. Wonderful example of hard work paying off! Thank you Daron K. Roberts!

Most Dream and Action Inspiring Book!

I read this book when it was first published, and it changed my life...listening to it narrated by the author tops even that! Coach DKR teaches us how to shift directions, find our dreams, leap out of our comfort zones, and work hard to design and build a life we love. Call An Audible shares a life map and fire we all need. Daron has the calming, strong voice of a preacher and a sage. Hearing this book through his reading will truly bless your life beyond measure. A must-read!
