The Magic of Winning

Prior to being diagnosed with HIV in 1991, Magic Johnson was the number one pick of the 1979 NBA Draft and one of the most talented and decorated players in the history of basketball. After retiring from professional basketball, Magic turned his interest toward entrepreneurship and became a leading spokesperson on HIV education. With an enduring legacy on the court, Johnson is now establishing his legacy off the court with his latest venture, Magic Johnson Development Corporation, which develops commercial property in long neglected minority urban and suburban neighborhoods. In this presentation, Johnson delivers a passionate message about his life story and how we can make a difference in our community.

The Power of Magic

In this session Earvin will share his entrepreneurial prowess that has made him a successful business owner to multiple ventures. A live Q&A can also be added to this session.
