Do what you do best and stick with it were among the words of wisdom offered by Earvin “Magic” Johnson during his Maverick Speakers Series lecture earlier this year. The former Los Angeles Lakers star urged the Texas Hall crowd to work hard and dream big.
A three-time NBA Most Valuable Player and member of the Basketball Hall of Fame, Johnson is now chairman and CEO of Magic Johnson Enterprises, a company that focuses on urban communities. He signed copies of his best-selling book, 32 Ways to Be a Champion in Business, and received a UT Arlington basketball jersey. Astronaut Sally Ride and CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin rounded out the spring 2010 Maverick Speakers Series lineup.
