Why Corrado?

So you might be wondering, why the name “Corrado”?

That’s a great question.

The four of us (Brian, Josh, Alex, and myself) all grew up in the Azusa, CA area and all went to Slauson Middle School. Our favorite teacher and middle school basketball coach, Mr. Corrado, always preached the importance of hard work and dedication to anything we were doing in life. He was a phenomenal man, teacher, and coach. Unfortunately, we lost him a couple years ago and wanted to name this group in his remembrance.

His favorite phrase was, “Be a person of integrity, and you can never go wrong!

This phrase means a lot more to me now then it did when I was playing hoops for the Panthers.

As I got older, I started to think about what it meant to be a person of integrity. I believe it means sacrificing time and effort, for doing things “the right way”. That is what Mr. Corrado always preached.
Another one of his favorite sayings was, “the tongue has the power of life and death”.

I personally have used this in my own life when I found myself in times of adversity. The words that we choose to words are physical in the universe. They exist! And the best part about it is we have the power to choose the words we want to say.

Here is one of my favorite videos from one Will Smith who talks about dreams and success!
