Jeter and Cuban: Prepared On And Off The Field

"Business is the ultimate sport"-Mark Cuban

On the most recent episode of my podcast, Unplugged with Brandon Steiner, I spoke with two of the premier franchise owners in sports, former New York Yankees captain Derek Jeter, and owner of the Dallas Mavericks, Mark Cuban. 

Derek Jeter and Mark Cuban are known for being the best at what they do. Derek will be taking his experience from on the field, and The Players' Tribune, to guide him through a journey of owning a professional sports franchise in the Miami Marlins. Mark has taken his tremendous success in the business world to bringing a championship to the Dallas Mavericks franchise he has owned since 2000. 

Success isn't given, but it's earned through being capable of handling any given situation. Each of them believes they attained their successes through their preparation. Mark insists that the idea of constantly attaining knowledge is something that he needs to do to stay a step ahead of his competition. For Derek, he says his day won’t be successful if he is not prepared. It is important to keep an eye on your competition, not out of envy, but to know how much harder you have to work to stay ahead of the curve. 

Without being prepared, you won't know what to expect. In life if you aren't prepared to hit a curveball, you will strikeout without a doubt. This world is constantly doing what we least expect, and only by committing to complete preparation are you going to be able to handle it. 

You never know which day is going to be the day that could change your life. Take an hour to listen to this incredible discussion from two dynamic business leaders and you will be sure to take away a lesson.

In this episode we discuss:

  • The American Dream
  • Derek Jeter's life in Business 
  • Preparation in not just sports, but in life 
  • Being responsible on Social Media
  • The Players Tribune 
  • Having a strong support group
  • ...and more.

    Contact Doctor Odunga at OR Whats App/CALL +2348167159012

    I got my ex husband back to me and also got fertile and gave birth to twin girls after 12 years of marriage.
    When I came online last year, I saw a testimony about Doctor Odunga and how he has been helping people with marriage issues and I decided to contact him. We spoke on email at and later he gave me his Whats-App number which is +2348167159012. He assured me he would help me get my ex husband back after 3 years of no contact. Doctor Odunga is the best spell caster I must say. My husband called me after 24 hours of contact. The third day, I received natural herbs for fertility and after using it, I became fertile and conceived. My husband and I reconnected, had sex and I was pregnant. Presently I am happy to say I am the mother of twin girls and this is ALL THANKS TO DOCTOR ODUNGA. I came online to say this: If you need help, I believe you are saved with this man.

    Contact his email at
