Episode 76 with Mike Pangelinan and the Islander Champions Tournament

Islander Sports Community

What a treat! Got to interview a fellow Micronesian from Pohnpei on the latest Podcast.

Mike Pangelinan has been running the Islander Champions Tournament (ICT), for the past five years in Arizona. The sports event is primarily basketball, but Mike mentions that volleyball is also a part of the tournament, or will be. They all come together in November each year to play, have fun, connect and collaborate.

Pull the trigger

This interview confirmed two things for me:

  • Taking action is the key to any endeavor – Just start, or as Mike says “pull the trigger”
  • Building a community is an effective way to long lasting success
