Author and speaker Skip Johnson loves to see the game in everything he does in life as he lives out Helen Keller’s quote that being alive is “either a daring adventure, or nothing at all.” The USPTA Master Tennis Professional (a designation awarded to less than one percent of 16,000 tennis professionals worldwide), was born and grew up in the Golden Isles of Georgia, USA and still lives in Georgia today, in the town of Newnan, with his wife and four daughters. He graduated from the University of West Georgia with a degree in Political Science and he is the Vice-President of Operations at Gold’s Gyms of West Georgia – rated as one of the top customer experience health clubs in the US.

Skip has a real love for writing, and his life as an author has spanned decades and has seen him write more than 100 inspirational articles, as well as produce many videos. But his greatest achievement as an author is his Amazon book, Grateful for Everything, and his newest book Starting Each Day in a Powerful Way. He is also the creator of the online course Getting Back to Happiness. Skip enjoys working out, travelling, reading, writing and storytelling. He also directs the oldest independent workshops in the US for school tennis coaches, which he started after graduating from college, which has been running for over 30 years.
