An NFL player denying knowing how performing enhancing drugs could have ever gotten into his body. Another ex-quarterback achieving a two-pointer: arrested for shoplifting and cocaine. The NFL’s new anti-domestic policy is being tested already with two NFL players being arrested in its first week. It has been another rough week for professional sports fans with pro athletes behaving badly. That’s why it is refreshing to see a former professional athlete, not just thriving personally, but also helping members of the public. On September 24, 2014, Phoenicians can learn how to enhance their business, wealth and health from Joe Courtney at the Embassy Suites at 2650 E Camelback Road in Phoenix.
Joe Courtney could have followed the path too many professional athletes seem to stumble down. From humble beginnings in Jackson, Mississippi, in high school he recognized basketball as a ladder out of poverty. Unlike those who were anointed as stars from high school, flooded with immediate fame and fortune, Courtney had to work hard to achieve his success. He ultimately forged a great 10-year career in the NFL, playing with basketball icons like Charles Barkley and Michael Jordan. He played with the Phoenix Suns in 1993-4.
Within five years of retirement, 60% of former NBA players are broke. Courtney defied the odds again, launching a successful design build company in Arizona. He designed luxury homes in the East Valley. But, as so many Arizonans, Courtney’s business suffered from the economic downturn. Not to be deterred, Courtney has become an inspirational speaker and best-selling author (Life Above and Beyond the Rim), using his life experience to help others.
Courtney will conduct his next “Half Court Workshop” on October 21, 2014, from 8:30-Noon. Courtney will help attendees rediscover their passion and identity, identify their rim (their personal glass ceilings), and reach it through his five-step program. Space is very limited for this special event.

It is time athletes start being recognized as much for their contributions off the field as their success on the field; more notoriety for their good deeds than their misdeeds. Investing four hours in a workshop with Courtney will be as enjoyable, and much more profitable, than sitting on the couch, watching another ballgame.
