"Legends Never Die"
If you live outside the United States there is a slim chance you may not know who Kobe Bryant is (was) or understand why virtually the whole of America is mourning his tragic death in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California. Here is the short version of his bio along with a video compilation of his life as it relates to structure, discipline, work ethics & growth as a world-class basketball player and entrepreneur. I was surprised to hear Kobe say that "he enjoyed his new role as an entrepreneur just as much as he enjoyed his 20 years in the basketball league (he explains why in the video below).
American Basketball Player
Kobe Bean Bryant was an American professional basketball player. As a shooting guard, Bryant entered the National
Basketball Association directly from high school, and played his entire 20-year professional career in the league
with the Los Angeles Lakers.

I wanted to pay tribute to a man I have always admired from afar for both his amazing basketball skills and his unparalleled work ethics. While I do enjoy a good basketball game, I definitely do not consider myself a die-hard basketball fan. But like Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant was magical to watch on the basketball court and inspirational to listen to off court. The video below by Evan Carmichael brings all Kobe's skills, work ethics and business savvy together in one powerful video. He beautifully breaks down Kobe's work ethics, values, beliefs, philosophies and accomplishments in his 41 years of life on this earth. In fact, the only little tidbit left out is that Kobe spoke 7 languages, one of them being Japanese - no easy feat!
Watch, listen, learn and implement his methods, principles & strategies in your business and in your life.
R.I.P. to all 9 people who died on that fateful day in January (January 26th, 2020).
