April 27, 2017
  • What is the secret to success in life? How do you determine if you really don’t have the talent to follow your passion? Pat Williams, Senior Vice President of NBA’s Orlando Magic joins me on All Business today to talk about success – and how to know if you have the right talent to follow your passion. Pat has authored over 100  books, led 23 teams to the NBA playoffs, and 5 to the finals. Here are a few more things to know about Pat:
  • Began career as a minor league baseball player but has been with the NBA for almost 50 years.
  • Born in Philadelphia – 1940
  • Bachelor’s in Physical Education from Wake Forest, Master’s of Science in Physical Education from Indiana U, Doctorate in Humane Letters from Flagler College
  • Served 7 years in US Army
  • 19 Children- 5 biological and 14 adopted (from 4 nations)
  • Author of 100 books


  • Where your greatest talent matches your passion is the Success intersection. You need more than just passion, you have to have the talent too.
  • Pat is a voracious reader- her reads 3-4 hours a day.
  •  Unfulfilled potential is just a waste.


What I learned- Wisdom. Take the time to ask others for help, it’s not weak, it’s just smart to learn from what others have already done.
