As the 2021-2022 basketball season kicked off, Charger athletes got words of advice on “Winning in Life On And Off The Court.” At the annual Tip-Off Dinner, Guest Speaker Justin Kobay, CPA, Partner/Business Manager of LL Business Management, shared how he built a fulfilling and successful career as a business manager to music industry artists, producers, and executives.
After speaking with the players on the men’s and women’s basketball teams, Kobay had high praise for the athletes. “I think it’s amazing. I think they are all very motivated, very focused, and hopefully I gave them some insight on the big picture,” he said.
Among Kobay’s advice: it is never too late to do what you want, figure out your strengths, always be yourself, and learn how to network. LL Business Management is based in Lake Success, NY and has an office in Los Angeles. Clients include Grammy-winning artist Lil Nas X, producer Timbaland, and musician Boots Riley.
The Tip-Off Dinner was held on November 4, 2021, at the Pearl River Elks Club. In addition to Kobay, the athletes heard from Master of Ceremony and College Trustee Michael McLaughlin ’89, Men’s Basketball Coach Joseph Clinton, and Women’s Basketball Coach Bill Diener.
