Kevin Thompson and Walt Burton made an exciting road trip to the amazing New Orleans to visit with the great Jabari Greer, Super Bowl champion and all-around stellar man. During this episode of Creative Competitors, we explore a lot of the character traits that have contributed to Jabari's success.
Kevin Thompson and Jabari first met as teammates on the University of Tennessee football team in 2000. This relationship continued as they shared spots on the roster on the track team. Jabari is most known for his stellar career in the NFL. However, very few people are aware of Jabari's unprecedented success during his collegiate career.
When you see Jabari's credentials, one thing is obvious: when he shows up, he's effective. In this latest episode of Creative Competitors, we dive a little deeper with Jabari and get him to give us some insights about his motivations, his work ethic and the legacy he wants to leave.
In this episode of Creative Competitors, we talk about signing our lease at Corporate Centre in the Cool Springs area south of Nashville, Tennessee. We discuss some of the difficulties of getting the office up and running, including purchasing office furniture, equipment, and our gratitude to our top notch interior decorator, Kelly Spalding, for her assistance.
We also discuss our recent involvement in the Zeek Rewards Ponzi Scheme case. With estimates of more than Two Million victims, the Zeek case may be one of the biggest ponzi schemes (in terms of the sheer volume of victims) in history. Because of Kevin’s extensive knowledge and visible presence in the direct sales industry, countless victims have contacted us to represent them during the claims process. To that end, we’ve established a website to assist victims with news updates and resources regarding the case. To date, more than 20,000 victims have signed up to receive our newsletter on the subject.
Last, we discuss Kevin’s recent appearance on CNBC, where he was interviewed by top CNBC correspondent, Herb Greenberg, regarding the laws and regulations in the network marketing industry. We’re looking forward to CNBC airing the interview later this month.
John certainly stands out in the world of entrepreneurship. While it certainly takes a Herculean effort to get ONE company successfully off the ground, John has managed to do it on multiple occasions. In the interview, John gives us insights into his work ethic and leadership philosophy. At the end of the day, it takes more than a big idea to create a big company. It takes strong leadership and team building skills. John is a student of the sport, reading upwards of 4 books per month ranging in topic from marketing, leadership development and business management.
It's important to note that during the interview, John never speaks about his personal talents. Instead, he constantly highlights the strengths of his team. This is one of the many reasons why he's been able to attract the right people to breath life into his ambitious ideas. If you're looking to create a legacy and build a large company, this video is a great place to start.
