The sports industry is one of the biggest industries in the world with a global market of $390 billion in 2020, and it is expecting to grow to $440 billion this year. This shows that sports are more than just teams competing for prestige and money. In fact, they are so impactful that can change many people’s lives only by following the same principles.
We can learn a lot of things from sports that we can use in our everyday lives, especially from the NBA, such as:
- Having a strong will
- Be a team player
- Having confidence
- Overcoming mental health issues
- And being a good leader
Having leadership skills is crucial in the NBA, especially if you want to be one of the top players in the league. With that said, the NBA can teach us many things about leadership and in today’s article, we will highlight some of the things that you should absorb from this sport in order to improve your life on every level.
Lead by Example
Being a good leader is all about taking responsibilities and holding yourself accountable before you can hold someone else. This is also the difference between a manager and a leader. Leaders will ask themselves before asking others, and managers only give out orders.

If you’re in business, you might be considering your options vis-a-vis payment systems. Modern-day businesses are required to keep pace with the pulse of the market. In recent months, a veritable explosion in cryptocurrency adoption has taken place. Institutional traders have poured into the crypto market en masse, bolstering substantial interest among retail traders. At one point, the market capitalization was well above $2 trillion+.
This begs the question: Should SMEs implement changes to their payment systems to accommodate cryptocurrency usage?
Modern-day payment processing solutions encompass a wide range of options, notably: Google Wallet, Apple Pay, Venmo, Square, Amazon Payments, Stripe, PayPal, NeoSurf, Visa, MasterCard, Diners Club, American Express, Bank Wire, et al. The popularity of these payment solutions is growing by the day for a range of activities. For instance, NeoSurf cash voucher pre-paid cards have become popular for casino transactions online. According to Statista, the most popular payment methods by the percentage of total e-commerce transactions volumes worldwide in 2020 included the following:

I was thinking about you today – remembering how we sat at your kitchen table and you had me thinking about the future – began the work of shifting me towards bigger visioning. Starting from where I want to be and working my way back. I have old habits of just trying to get through each step, getting from here to there but rarely do I start from the dream fulfilled and work my way backwards. To me it was/is revolutionary thinking. I am noticing that I am starting to dream bigger; I am starting t… Read more

“The Hospitality Leadership Sessions have been invaluable. Dedicated time getting to know one another while developing life-long leadership skills is a true gift.

Kimberly delivers the goods with passion and compassion. She is a dedicated leader who achieves what at first seems insurmountable. I highly recommend this Champion of change and published author.

The intent was to energize and motivate the team to feel empowered and make changes to deliver better results. Kimberly spent an afternoon (many felt it was too short) delivering very compelling and thought provoking messages though interactive exercises that kept the group of ~60 people on their feet. Everyone left with a great deal of positi… Read more
