Client stories: “Giving an NBA player honest feedback about his career was one of the toughest things I have had to do as a business manager,” says Anakwenze. “As with most NBA players, he was surrounded by an entourage of would-be advisers. His dream was to become a singer and he wanted to invest upwards of $300,000 on creating an album while (at the same time) looking for a new team. I gently reminded him that he was approaching 30 and was a relatively unknown professional athlete. Further, I provided him with personal contacts in the industry to reduce production costs. My soft approach was not well received and soon he could no longer afford our services.”
