Company History

In 2010 The Leadership Publishing Team merged with Educational Coaching & Business Communications. Educational Coaching & Business Communications was founded in 2003 by Dan Spainhour.

After 20 years in high school and college athletics, Spainhour decided to write an informational guide on college recruiting for parents. His primary purpose behind the guidebook was to help parents through the recruiting process and help them give their children the best opportunity to win a college scholarship. He hoped to give out a few copies here and there and never really expected much more than that. However, the guide became a tremendous success.
How To Get Your Child An Athletic Scholarship: The Parent's Ultimate Guide to Recruiting became one of the leading resources for parents of student-athletes and was featured in the 2010 Congressional Report as a recommended book on receiving athletic aid. With the tremendous success of How to Get Your Child an Athletic Scholarship, he became convinced that he should put his experience to use by writing and creating information products. Thus, Educational Coaching & Business Communications was born.
