Beyond basketball, Magic Johnson has built an empire for himself that continues to grow. From movie theaters and restaurants to health products and luxury cars, Johnson’s enterprises wouldn’t be around if it weren’t for his incredible work ethic.
He talked with Roland Martin recently, an explained how he made it from basketball legend to business phenomenon. “I’m a guy who is very driven, so I’m never able to pay myself on the back because I’m always still going.”
That drive even led him to leave ESPN, where he was a game analyst, earlier this month. “They wanted 60 days [a year]. That was hard for me to give up now, because I have so many other businesses I’m about to launch.”
Many other businesses launching? Find out more about what Johnson’s up to, in the video below.
