Mock­ett: "Called to Swim"

Serve Daily - - IN OUR BACK YARD - By Springville Se­nior Cen­ter for Serve Daily

— Greg Mock­ett is a 20- year en­trepreneur and multi-patented in- ven­tor turned men­tor and busi­ness coach. Born in Ge­or­gia and raised in cen­tral Florida, he made his way to Utah by way of Brigham Young Univer­sity in 1983. At 31, a bit of a late bloomer, Greg mar­ried Holly Hulet of Cal­i­for­nia, and they have six chil­dren, five daugh­ters, the old­est mar­ried and off to col­lege, and one son, a three-year-old charmer. Last Au­gust, Greg be­came the first Utahn over 50 to swim the English Chan­nel. . . . Ex­cept one.

On a Sun­day af­ter­noon in June 2011, while teach­ing an elders quo­rum les­son, he would un­ex­pect­edly re­ceive a call to swim the English Chan­nel. Un­able to swim 50 yards at the time, it would take six years, many tri­als, and not a few mira- cles be­fore he would travel to Eng­land to ful­fill that call­ing.

Greg plans to share many sto­ries from his jour­ney from "call" to "swim" he hopes will in­spire, uplift, and mo­ti­vate.

This pre­sen­ta­tion, to be held at the Springville Se­nior Cen­ter, is free.
