Business books are an indispensable part of the NFL and one that every team should have, according to former NFL executive Mike Mayock.
Mayock, who served as a general manager and executive vice president of football operations for the Cleveland Browns and Seattle Seahawks during the 1980s, says his knowledge of the business world helps his advice to teams in developing their new business practices.
Mayamp is one of the leading figures in the field of sports business education.
His book, Small Business, has been translated into over 40 languages and sold more than 4 million copies.
Mayamp, who is now a sports analyst for ESPN, says he would have never thought he’d be a business analyst.
He began his career as a football coach and eventually worked for NFL teams in both the 1960s and 1970s.
In his new book, Mayamp says his advice for teams is similar to the way a coach or a team president would talk about the business of football.
The book’s subtitle, “How to Make Money in Business,” is a reference to Mayock’s famous “business of football” speech from the 1984 NFL championship game.
Mayock, whose career included stints as an assistant coach with the Dallas Cowboys, Indianapolis Colts and St. Louis Rams, also says that he has been a part of some of the most successful business deals in sports history.
May, a former NFL player and executive, says that the business is not about the salary cap and winning the Super Bowl.
He believes it’s about building long-term relationships with the community and creating lasting relationships with fans.
“I think it’s the most important thing that a person has to do in their life,” Mayamp said.
“That’s why it’s such a powerful tool.”
Mayock says that if you don’t have a business, you should build one.
“I think the business community is really under siege right now,” he said.
“People don’t understand what it’s all about, they don’t realize how much impact you can have on a community by bringing a business to the community.”
He says that every football team should start by building a foundation of relationships with local governments and community organizations.
“When a franchise is founded, the first thing you want to do is make sure that the team is going to be part of a strong community,” he explained.
“The community is not the problem.
It’s the person.”
