Mark Edward Brown’s Summer Review

Whew the summer of 2015 has come and gone quite rapidly.  We experienced severe flooding in May and now triple digit temps. in August.

Aside from the extreme weather it has been an enjoyable and unforgettable season that I will never forget.  Aside from my work as a security expert, coaching consultant, operations officer & online businessman, I was asked at the beginning of the Summer to Coach a youth Soccer team for 9 year old boys.

My friend Dan Myers is the best Soccer Skills coach in this region and he had his hands full with a full team already plus many more kids that wanted to play Soccer for the Summer.

After joining the ECL Arrows we began a focused intro. and immersion into the world of 3 vs. 3 Soccer.  There are several differences from the traditional game which all contribute to more touches on the ball along with a mixed offensive to defensive playing style that youngsters seem to pick up on quickly.

The boys played a total of 5 Tournaments in various cities across the state from Tulsa, Oklahoma City, Mustang, and Ardmore.  Each tournament they played a minimum of 4 games.

Adapting my Life/Business Coaching skills to the sport of Soccer and young boys was a fun and rewarding experience.  I would say that I do not have it mastered yet but it sure has been fun spending the summer developing young minds and bodies into healthy / critical thinking young people.

The 3 vs. 3 Soccer Season ended yesterday (8 August 2015) on a high note which is a fitting end to a successful season.  The boys won every game they played, a total of 4.  They swept their age group and came out as Champions.

The icing on the cake is an invite to compete in the “Elite” division of the World 3 vs. 3 Soccer Championships at ESPN / Disney in January 2016!

Below is a photo of the ECL Arrows, the team consisted of Boomer, Collin, Dane, Landon, and Markus (my Son).

I honestly find it hard to categorize all of the satisfaction, fulfillment, and joy this experience has brought me.  Being able to Coach my own boy without him hating me for it is something I will continue to strive for and never forget.

This teams parental support is phenomenal, all the parents are dedicated, supportive, and just all around super good folks – I am in their debt for placing their trust in me to Coach and develop their boys.

A hearty “Thank You” goes out to Coach Dan, all the Parents, my boys the ECL Arrows, and all of our fans in Southwestern Oklahoma…

P.S. – I have been asked to stay with the team and Coach them in the fall season of traditional Soccer where we will be practicing and playing at the Lawton Soccer Club… I’m stoked :-)


Here’s why you need a SYSTEM

Mark Edward Brown's SystemA system is defined as:

“any formulated, regular, or special method or plan of procedure”

They are all around us, we use them everyday, in fact there are so many processes, procedures, and systems in place in our daily lives that I want you to pay close attention to what I am about to share with you so that you do not take this information for granted.

These days my life revolves around a few areas that bring me great joy and satisfaction.  Because of this discovery I wanted to create a quick article so that you can see and test drive the system that I am about to share with you.

Think for a moment about all of the things that you are in pursuit of that you believe will bring joy into your life or the things that are in your life right now that make you happy.

Now that you have done that, let me ask you this:

Are you using a SYSTEM to bring you more of what you want in your life?

I am referring to is an acronym which you can see below:

S – Save
Y – Your
S – Self
T – Time
E – Energy and
M – Money

Right now I use a one that saves me time energy and money every day.  I do this by associating with people who share in the same ideals as I hold.

I read, watch videos, and listen to people who can teach me how to get what I want in my life and keep more of what I have worked for as well.

Using one means different things to different people so I am eager to hear what you want to bring into your life by having and leveraging one.

Share in the comments below what your goals are by using the acronym that I have shared with you?

With my best regards always,

Mark Edward Brown Enjoys OKC Energy Home Opener Soccer Match

Mark Edward Brown and his Family recently were in attendance at the Oklahoma City Energy Soccer Team’s first home match of the 2015 season.

Here is a quick video of the drum line that performed during the game, this was filmed by Mark Edward Brown’s Daughter, Rashelle:

As many of you know, I’ve been a Soccer enthusiast for quite a few years.  Ever since playing the game while in the Army and stationed at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri, I’ve been bitten by the futbol bug…

At one point in time all of my kids have played this great game; 2 of my kids still play and my Wife has been an Assistant Coach.  For the past 11 months I have been privileged to serve as the Lawton Soccer Club’s, Vice President in Lawton, Oklahoma.

This particular soccer match was special because it was the home opener and all of our first time visit to Taft Stadium to watch the OKC Energy.  The game ball was delivered to the stadium by helicopter and an Oklahoma Narcotics Bureau Officer exited the helicopter with the game ball and then presented it to the officials.

The Energy played the Seattle Sounders 2 and won in spectacular fashion with a 2 to 1 score and Victory!  There was a fireworks show after the match and we all received T-Shirts.

Here is a picture of Taft Stadium from the outside of the stadium (see below) you can see the inside by watching the video above.
