    Success. We all want it, but few know how to achieve it. Only 5% of Americans are considered successful.

Claudia's solution: HeadintheGameSports.com, where she applies success lessons to what today's kids want to achieve NOW – success in sports – and performance-based activities like dance, band, theatre, and academic contests.
