In Episode 87 of The Roth Effect with Carol Roth, “Losing a Small Business to Government’s Pandemic Reaction,” Paul Shirley, former NBA basketball player turned author and entrepreneur, joins Carol Roth to talk about his journey from athlete to creator, entrepreneur and small business owner.
Paul shares a frank and raw narrative about how the government pandemic closures happened just as his young business was gaining momentum, and his frustrations as a business owner watching the government pick winners and losers.
Paul and Carol also discuss how what happened has informed his go-forward strategy on his future endeavors.
Plus, a “Now You Know” on time zones.
Paul played for 17 professional basketball teams in a nine-year career, including stops in Spain, Greece, Russia, and with three teams in the NBA. He’s the author of two works of nonfiction: Can I Keep My Jersey? and Stories I Tell On Dates, and just published his first novel, Ball Boy.
