21 May FE: Essential Skills in Action
“I think it’s just God disguised as Michael Jordan.”~Larry Bird
I started this Future Entrepreneur blog after Cubs won the Worlds Series, and we’ve covered an inspiring range of champions from charities to sports dynasties, and rock stars to artist journeys since then. I’m based in Chicago and here more often than usual as we adjust to this new normal of COVID-19 in 2020. So, yes…I made time to catch “The Last Dance” docu-series. It’s been fun to workout as I watch be the dedication it takes to reach that level. Chicago is full of legends, and this is told like folklore.
I was around Minneapolis and LA during the Bulls’ 3-peats, but I caught some games and always check out the stories when I’m at the United Center. I talked about the series with several friends and how the music sets the scene. And I’d have to say the last episode had the quintessential soundtrack.
(Some of you may remember a few of the other times Pearl Jam crossed my path. ICYMI:
So thank you MJ for the stories and legends, and to Jason Hehir and film crew for all the storytelling.
I’m working on scenes for my thriller series and film about perspective during this pandemic. (Stay tuned here, or sign up for the A-List to hear it first: http://www.akashagarnier.com!)
