How did an actor go on to become the President of Basketball Operations for the NBA’s Portland Trailblazers?

Well, you’ll have to listen, but it’s one of the most inspiring and unlikely stories you’ll ever hear.

As one of my oldest friends, Neil Olshey and I were struggling to make our mark in Hollywood while living the bachelor life. Now we’re both married with a couple of kids. See how he runs an NBA franchise while juggling his own family life and how life is different from us living in the same “rent controlled” apartment building 20 years ago to now living in our “wife-controlled” homes.

Neil’s journey to the top of an NBA front office is one of the best examples of “Do what You love” and we’ll contemplate the question of whether “work ethic” is passed on to your children.
