A New Way to Shine with Highlights, Insights and Media-bites that’s Exciting (Old-School Flava)

The fall TV season is jumping-off. Not too far behind is the NBA season. But Cookie Johnson, wife of Hall of Famer Magic Johnson is calling her own shots. So is Linkedin CEO Jeff Weiner even with being bought by Microsoft. Johnson and Weiner tell how passion and compassion have made them rock steady.

Weiner wrote to company employees “The Microsoft that has evolved under [CEO’s] leadership is a more agile, innovative, open and purpose-driven company. It was the latter point that first had me thinking we could make this work.” It’s one of the hardest things to explain about making it rain in biz so all can see.

Johnson’s doing the rounds for her new book. They’ve each worked on coming to grips and starting from scratch by going all in for a happier life. For them it’s doing something different in the game, creating something better in their lane and leaving something special on the trail. That’s what is, what is, what is!

What Weiner saw in Microsoft, Cookie saw in ‘Magic.’ As her book title suggests she was Believing in Magic. So she started a Jeans fashion line and Weiner wanted to make sure a merger of two companies would have the stars align. No one can take away what they’ve invested in themselves and their dreams.

Referring to ‘Magic’ Cookie told Oprah “On his side, he was building his business as he was getting bigger and bigger and bigger – so, it just all became about work for him.” Lessons they share say as much about living in the moment and walking on sunshine. It’s also doing what it takes to be best-in-class.

Fall TV season jump-off has begun. New dramas and NFL players on the run. Not too far is NBA to start soon. Who’s ready to hoop to the moon? Cookie Johnson still calling the shots. After raising kids and stirring the pots. She and Linkedin CEO Weiner passion ready. As compassion made them rock steady.

He wrote letter to company staff. A little something even to make them laugh. Saying Microsoft as new owner is good. Starting from the little engine that could. Innovative, purpose-driven and agile. How they viewed the rank and file. One of the hardest things to explain. Is for others to see biz making it rain.

Johnson doing the rounds for new book. How the journey took a second and third look. Coming to grips, starting from scratch. Is what it took for a happier patch. For them doing different in the game. Creating better than just fame. Leaving something special on the trail. What it is, what it is, what it is, the holy grail.

Weiner and Microsoft working as one. Cookie and ‘Magic’ moving past once and done. Believing in Magic her calling card. Building Jeans line on the yard. Hoping things would work out fine. As peeps and company visions align. So much invested in their dreams. Seeing the inner workings of great teams.

Cookie telling Oprah stuff deep in her soul. For how she’d let the good times roll. Magic building a biz was all it took. But still not letting him off the hook. Getting bigger and bigger on Wall Street. Yet walking on sunshine in the heat. Living in the moment as their hall pass. Doing what it took to be best-in-class.
