After retirement, many top athletes may find themselves in a precarious financial situation. Former basketball player Shaquille O’Neal is an exception to the rule Ipass California location.

It’s no secret that former athletes often struggle financially when their careers are over. Sixty percent of NBA players become bankrupt within five years after departing the league, for instance.

On the other hand, Shaq is bucking the trend and encouraging others to do the same after he retired in 2011. According to Shaq, who stated in an interview with HBO’s Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel, he now makes more than the $30 million salaries he earned playing in the NBA during his successful 19-year basketball career. He now reaches more per year than the $30 million payment.

Aside from his rich endorsement deals, the former NBA champion turned businessman has built a sizable commercial empire, investing in everything from fast-food chains to the latest technological advances.

King of the Franchise

Ten percent of the company’s franchises were owned by Shaq at one point, with 155 sites. Despite his admission to CNBC that he had sold his shares, he acknowledged that the burger firm had been “extremely wonderful” to him.

The 17 Auntie Anne’s, one Krispy Kreme in Atlanta, and a CityPlex12 movie theater in his hometown of Newark, NJ, are just some of the numerous businesses he has purchased. A Shaquille burger joint in Los Angeles named after him and a Big Chicken in Las Vegas.

For a three-year endorsement deal and $8.25 million investment in nine Atlanta locations, Shaq just joined the board of directors of Papa John’s. He will serve as the pizza chain’s brand ambassador.

Invest in the things you like

Aside from his passion for food, Shaq has a wide range of hobbies. According to The Hustle, he owns 40 24-hour fitness clubs and 150 car washes.

CNBC spoke with the NBA Hall of Famer, who says he’s made a fortune from his early investments in Google, but he hasn’t divulged how much money he’s made. Being an NBA analyst and owner of the Sacramento Kings, as well as an NBA TV commentator, is a full-time job for him.

Then there are the Shaq suits, the Shaq footwear, the Shaq jewelry line, and even the Little Shaq children’s books he has written and published.

According to HBO’s Real Sports, Shaq has a strict investment philosophy: he only gets involved if he enjoys the company or product. The Ring doorbell video home security system is one of his favorite examples. He loved it so much that he tracked down the developer in 2016 and bought half of the company. He also appeared in many advertisements for Ring. Later, when Amazon purchased Ring for more than $1 billion, Shaq was given a slice of the profits.

Fun is a trademark of ours.

Despite his many enterprises and other projects, he hasn’t stopped working on his brand. I saw him on TV advertising a wide range of products, from Gold Bond and Icy Hot to Oreos and doughnuts. The General auto insurance and Carnival cruises were two of his best-known commercials.

If you look at Shaq’s resume, you’ll notice that he’s done it all: acting in movies rapping and now DJing.

He said the Shaq brand on HBO’s Real Sports is all about a good time. When I grow up, I want to be the guy that makes others laugh.

‘Here if you need it’: How the warmth of the women’s athletic community helped me through cancer | sport https://lernersportsmarketing.com/here-if-you-need-it-how-the-warmth-of-the-womens-athletic-community-helped-me-through-cancer-sport/ Thu, 21 Jul 2022 23:54:00 +0000 https://lernersportsmarketing.com/here-if-you-need-it-how-the-warmth-of-the-womens-athletic-community-helped-me-through-cancer-sport/ OWhile I was awaiting the results of a biopsy on a suspicious lump in my breast, I was doing some editing work at Guardian Australia’s sports office.

OWhile I was awaiting the results of a biopsy on a suspicious lump in my breast, I was doing some editing work at Guardian Australia’s sports office. Football writer Samantha Lewis has submitted an article about the city of Melbourne and New Zealand player Rebekah Stott which elaborated on her diagnosis and treatment for Hodgkin’s lymphoma. At first, I wasn’t sure if it was a story I should be working on at that time, but reading it made me feel calmer. For a long time women’s sport has been my home and here is the story of someone who was part of that community and experienced something similar. It was my first sign that being part of this community would be my saving grace.

A little over a week later, I received the phone call that would change my life. It was the unique experience of being diagnosed with cancer during lockdown. Rather than sitting face to face with my GP, who has cared for me for 10 years, I was crouched in a corner of the common yard in our unit block when I heard the news during of a telehealth appointment – trying to get enough reception to hear doctor while maintaining some semblance of privacy.

Despite having no family history or risk factors, the lump was breast cancer and from then on everything was a whirlwind. Nine months later I’m still not sure I’ve dealt with exactly what happened to me, I just put my head down and did what I had to do to get through it. There seemed to be no other choice – a week later I had surgery, then a week later I found out that more operations were needed as the cancer was spreading further than we had had thought. It also meant that I couldn’t avoid chemotherapy, so it was closely followed by radiotherapy.

Of course, the ongoing effects of the pandemic have compounded all of this. No visitors to the hospital while I was recovering from surgery or on one of my first appointments. But despite all this, I never really felt alone. I had the support of my amazing husband, family and friends of course – I knew they would be there for me and I couldn’t have done anything without them.

But I also decided to share my story on social media because I never imagined that I would end up with breast cancer. I wanted people to be aware of this possibility and stay alert with their controls and I knew that often the best way to convey messages like this is through personal stories.

Within hours of sharing my story online, I was overwhelmed with the love and support that came flooding back to me, especially from the women’s sports community. I received messages, gifts and flowers from all over the country. From friends, colleagues and sports fans to professional athletes, clubs and national organizations, this community has rallied around me in ways I never expected.

Thoughts are with you and your family, please let me know if there is anything that can be done to help you through this time x

It’s a community I’ve been part of ever since I had access to the internet and found people who loved netball as much as I did. From there, everything snowballed into cricket, rugby league, AFLW and football, with our individual communities of passionate fans finding each other, intertwining and learning to love each other’s sports. For many of us who love women’s sports, the sometimes toxic world of Twitter is our home, where we met and where we carved out warm, safe corners to share our love.

Lots of people from this community that I have never met. We are spread across the country, across the world even, but we talk and share our stories almost every day. They are people I care deeply about and I was surprised and delighted to find that they cared just as much about me.

It inspired me so much that I made it an integral part of my chemotherapy process. With the ongoing restrictions, I haven’t always been able to have a support person with me for those long, sometimes painful, and always boring infusion sessions. The nurses were lovely, but busy, and I often spent many hours alone in my little cabin, watching the traffic on Missenden Road. And so I thought of ways to bring my community with me. I created a collaborative playlist and asked everyone to add a song to it – something that would get me through the treatment. Many of these songs were tied to memories we shared of women’s sporting events – from Taylor Swift Shake who penetrated every inch of the 2015 Netball World Cup, in Lorde green light which brought back memories of working on the sidelines of the 2018 Commonwealth Games and Katy Perry Roar which immediately brought me back to the 2020 T20 World Cup Finals at the MCG.

I also wore a women’s sports team jersey to every chemo session. Each came with their own stories and emotions. In many ways, cancer treatment reduced me to childhood – I became much more dependent than I thought and needed stories to help me. As a lifelong fangirl, elite female athletes are my superheroes. As much as a child might dress like Elsa or Spiderman to help them through chemotherapy, I dressed like my heroes and channeled the fierce determination of Alex Blackwell and Nat Medhurst, the incredible resilience of Ash Brazill and Amy Parmenter, the heart and strength of Hannah Darlington and Sharelle McMahon, and the power and leadership of Kezie Apps and Emma Tonegato.

It hasn’t been an easy nine months and although the worst is hopefully behind me, cancer is now part of my life story, something that will linger long after the scans are clear. Although it’s never something I wanted or expected, I take silver liners wherever I can find them. And the fact that the entire women’s sports community is standing behind me saying “Here if you need it” is perhaps the best beacon of all.

The Pukekura Park Sports Field would be part of the Tukarikino Active Community Hub.

The project manager for the proposed New Plymouth multi-sport community center says plans for the $90 million complex continue to evolve.

Auckland-based project manager Steve Bramley said “a lot has changed” with the Tuparikino Active Community Hub project since New Plymouth District Council gave the green light to invest $40 million in the project. part of its long-term plan last year.

Sport Taranaki has been tasked with finding the remaining $50 million.

Collaborative work involving Sport Taranaki and up to 30 key stakeholders emphasizes the center providing well-being and working closely with the organisation’s Taranaki Different and Better programme, which emphasizes the shared governance, services and different sport groups working more closely together. .

Planning for the center focused, Bramley said, on how it could improve sports and recreation, community fitness, education and employment outcomes, as well as attracting people. future sports tournaments for all ages.

“This is the best way to achieve a sustainable settlement and the provision of future leisure services,” he said.

Bramley said the project is also focused on co-design and co-investment with mana whenua and all partner groups, including the Western Institute of Technology.

A key element of this planning was to consider how best to integrate the established sports and recreation facilities with those planned for the Hub.

This meant taking a ‘precinct’ view of the facilities around the planned racecourse site, which included the artificial turf on Hobson St, the New Plymouth Boys High School and Pukekura Park sports grounds and the existing TSB Stadium, as well as international standard hockey. facilities in Stratford.

Within this framework, the core of the project would be the proposed new covered stadium.

“Everything we do is backed by 30 years of financial modeling,” he said.

The original timelines had also changed with the construction of new artificial turf at the racecourse, now scheduled for the end of 2023 with the indoor hub, subject to funding, due to start in late 2024.

“You’re effectively looking at a two-year build from there,” he said.

Despite inflationary pressure, Bramley remained convinced that the costs were manageable.

“The reality is that from 2020, when this project was costed, until the time when we were looking to build in 2024, whichever way you look at it, you have a 20% cost increase, which is really real,” he said.

“We just have to keep looking very smart at what we’re doing and really make sure we’re delivering quality results that are effective.”

After nearly six years of preparation, the finish line is in sight for the Banteer Community Sportsfield project.

With the first phase of the €1.85m development – ​​the construction of an all-weather lit playing surface – having been completed in March 2020, the second element of the project is only two months away from completion. .

Almost ready for action, the new community building adjacent to the astrotruf pitch will include changing rooms, disabled facilities, spectator stand, museum, digital hub and cafe.

The stop-start nature of GAA activity over the past two Covid-dominated years meant that the all-weather playing surface was not cleared until May last year, with demand for the pitch ever since then about seven days a week.

Last weekend, the astroturf ground hosted 11 matches of hurling, camogie, women’s football, the Duhallow U21 football championship and soccer.

Yesterday’s Munster senior post-primary women’s football final was the second provincial decision to take place at the venue in the space of a fortnight, while Cork’s senior camogie team reside in Banteer every Thursday evenings to train under new manager Matthew Twomey and trainer Davy. Fitzgerald.

The soon-to-open multifunctional community building will complement the gaming facilities, document the rich history of Banteer Sports and provide workspace for people living in the area.

“The museum/exhibition area will showcase and document a great deal of local history, such as the 100 year history of Banteer Sports, which was a major annual event at the famous cinder track here from 1886 to 1986,” said Denis Withers said. , secretary of the sports ground.

“Jerry Sheehan has put together an excellent compilation of the history of Banteer Sports, including old RTÉ commentary. The museum will attract people to the area interested in viewing old newspaper articles, photos and videos associated with the event, while preserving it for future generations.

The aforementioned digital hub, he added, was not part of the original plan, but was incorporated into the design of the building when Covid spawned a spike in remote working and the relocation of people from towns and cities. to more rural areas.

General view of Banteer Community Sportsfield Astroturf development project, Banteer, Co. Cork.

“After Covid arrived, it became a necessary part of the project. For those who work from home, this is a space for them if they want to work alone away from home, but do it locally.

The main grant of €1.2 million funding development came from the government’s regeneration and rural development fund in 2019. A capital grant for sport was also approved, as well as Leader grants for the inclusion of a renewable energy system, parking and a digital hub in the new building.

The remaining €400,000 of the bill continues to be raised through fundraising efforts and local sponsorship.

Withers said there was immense local pride as the project drew to a close and appreciation for the facility they now have on their doorstep.

“This is a testament to the hard work of the Banteer Community Sportsfield group and the support received from the local community, all local user clubs, neighbours, businesses, schools, TDs, councillors, all fundraisers / ticket sellers, Director Maura Walsh and IRD Duhallow staff that this major project for Banteer is taking place during these difficult times.

“This project will provide a facility for all areas of Duhallow, County Cork, Kerry and Limerick, and provide all families and future generations with a better quality of life.”

Balmoral football, netball, tennis, cricket, rodeo and more now have a new state-of-the-art center to showcase the city’s top regional talent, made possible by an investment of over $176,000 from the government Andrews Labor Party. Community Support Fund.

Parliamentary Secretary for Sport Danielle Green this week joined Southern Grampians Shire Council Deputy Mayor Cr David Robertson to officially launch the new Balmoral Community Complex on the Balmoral Recreation Reserve.

Home to the Harrow Balmoral Football Netball Club, the new community center replaces aging facilities which struggled to meet the needs of clubs and the wider Balmoral community.

Labor government funding has been launched for new flooring, kitchen fittings and appliances, cold room, sound system, benches and landscaping.

The new complex is also a boon to the local community, including the Balmoral Rodeo Committee and the Balmoral Pastoral and Agricultural Show Committee, who now also have access to the new facility to hold meetings, events and celebrations.

The opening of the Balmoral complex comes just 13 months since Ms Green launched women-friendly facilities in Harrow, West Wimmera Shire, thanks to a $1million investment from the Victorian Government.

From new sports pavilions to upgrades to playgrounds, projects like these provide high quality, accessible places for Victorians to enjoy the benefits of sport and active participation in leisure.

This initiative is part of the government’s investment of more than $1.1 billion in community sport and active recreation infrastructure since 2014.

Ms Green thanked the Southern Grampians Shire Council and all other financial contributors to the project for their commitment and support to the entire Balmoral Community Complex.

For more information on infrastructure grant opportunities available through the Victorian Government visit www.sport.vic.gov.au.

Quotes attributed to Parliamentary Secretary for Sport Danielle Green

“Sport is the lifeblood of regional communities, and the new Balmoral Community Complex will provide opportunities for the growing number of football, netball, cricket and tennis players to emulate their sporting heroes in their own backyards. .

“Clubs like Harrow Balmoral Football Netball Club now have excellent facilities that they can be proud of at Harrow and now at Balmoral.”

“I am delighted to have officially launched the two new facilities, in just over a year, for two great neighboring communities who work so closely together on and off the pitch.”

As Balmoral Community Resort Management Committee Chairman Mick Leeming said

“The new facilities are fantastic for the Balmoral community, they will make a huge difference to our sports club and other activities, what better way to bring the whole community together.”

Do you know a high school student-athlete who was a star beyond the box score? If so, we want to hear from you!

The North Jersey High School Sports Awards, presented by Holy Name Medical Center, are now receiving nominations for the I AM SPORT Award, which recognizes student-athletes who give back to their communities through volunteerism. The winner will be announced at the On-Demand Streaming Awards on June 30 on the event website. The show is free to watch.

Any athlete from a local school and sport is eligible to be nominated for the I AM SPORT award.

Maybe you noticed a local high school football player delivering meals to your neighborhood during the pandemic, or were greeted at your doorstep by a football player offering help with yard work. . Maybe you’ve been touched by a student-athlete offering virtual tutoring services, or noticed a group of athletes cleaning up the local park or beach. This is your chance to have a deserving student-athlete recognized for what they have accomplished in the community, and you can nominate any athlete here!
