LESSONS ON SUCCESS: Early on in his sports career, Magic Johnson tried to convince mega-entrepreneur Michael Ovitz to be his BUSINESS mentor. Ovitz told him, "No." Magic did not give up. He
decided to call him every other day until Ovitz gave in and said, "Yes." The intensity of their mentorship has been likened to that of getting an MBA. Immediately, the mentorship began to pay off. Magic used what he learned to negotiate a deal to become the first NBA player to obtain his own licensing deal. Magic would later use his lessons with Ovitz' to launch a multi-million dollar business empire off the court. LESSON: Do not underestimate the value of a mentor. You're NEVER too old for one!
