Three big names made announcements this past week. I am sharing my thoughts on them, and then tying it back to what it means for you as a business owner.
Last Week Sean Peyton (Saints Coach) Announced That He Was Retiring.
He was the hero along with Drew Brees for shepherding the Saints to win their first championship.
We loved what they did for the team. Turning the Saints from a never-winner to an always-hopeful.
That Same Week David Ortiz Was Inducted Into The Baseball Hall Of Fame.
He helped my childhood favorite team (Boston Red Sox) win their first championship in many decades.
I suffered my whole childhood clinging onto the hope that they would one day win. And thanks to David and others, they did.
And Then Suddenly Tom Brady Announces His Retirement.
I used to dislike the guy, but I have come to respect him. He is very likeable and hardworking, it doesn’t come easy to him.
For us fans who lose the big names (Brady, Payton, Brees) it seems like they can never be replaced.
Initially, our hopes are crushed. But then other stars do step up, like Joe Burrows of the Cincinnati Bengals who beat The Kansas City Chiefs and Patrick Mahomes.
And hopefully, someone good will replace the Saints’ Sean Peyton and Drew Brees (I hope!)
Your Challenge: Don’t Get Star-Struck, Mesmerized By The Big Names In Your Market.
Don’t think the big-name leaders are invincible. There is always room for a new upstart to rise up and take their place.
The same goes for you if you are a leader in your market, don’t rest on your laurels.
That’s why I love this country. It allows for anyone to innovate and go after the leader.

This Is Not The Passing Of An Era, It Is The Start Of A New One.
To prepare for the future: How will you be inspiring your new talent to stay at your firm? How will you be developing them into leaders?
