It’s Week 1 and the NFL season is underway…our training camp tour series highlighted the players and teams around the league and we plan to continue bringing you top guests and impactful conversations. Today we get to share a major life PIVOT for a man with ties not to just all the sports leagues and athletes, but a man making a major impact in business and culture.
Bankrupt to Billionaire, Michael Rubin, the CEO of Fanatics and CoFounder of The Reform Alliance, joins The Pivot to share his journey of success and the parallels of business and sports in what was more like a masterclass of finding success through living life.
Opening his NYC apartment to the guys, Rubin hosted Fred, Ryan and Channing for a conversation covering business, relationships, sports, mistakes and failures of life and the important initiatives fueled by his passion to help others. Storying his youth and attributing his entrepreneurial skills to growing up fearless of taking chances and betting on himself, Rubin opens up on how although life looks glamorous now, it comes with a history of a lot of losses that are just as big as the wins.
“I was a god awful student and I was a terrible athlete.” This self-awareness forced Michael to gravitate to the sport of business at eight years old.
Referencing relationships as the most important aspect of life and business, Rubin stresses you can have all the talent in the world on one team but still not perform well and that’s because the key is not only to have the best people but get the best to all work together and build as one. Rubin shares how Tom Brady recently spoke to his entire company about how to translate leadership into winning and the importance of consistency in running the same plays which leads to crossing the goal line and bigger wins.
Rubin says at this level, it’s not about money, it’s about doing what you love and making an impact. Although, there is no shortage of good times and famous friends- the guys give Rubin crap about his infamous White Party, which has become the star studded social event of the year.
Fueled by a desire to win and something he doesn’t plan on stepping back from, Rubin continues to expand his reach through the relationships he has cultivated. Ryan jokes that the people Rubin is in constant contact with are household names to the rest of us from Robert Kraft to Meek Mill to Jay Z to Tom Brady to Lil Baby to anyone you can think of really.
Of all the endeavors Rubin has been a part of, one of the most rewarding experiences has been starting the Reform Alliance to help expose the struggles faced by those within the Black Community and dedicated to helping individuals who have been oppressed by our justice system.
