Sunday, October 22, 2012, Future Executives, Inc. was part of history in a big way at the Inaugural Open Practice commencing the historical Brooklyn Nets season. Future Executives invited middle school males to get a hands-on real life look at events and items that go into a Leisure & Entertainment budget via our Future Executives Essential (FEE) program. Many children visit venues complimentary but few gain a life lesson of  income and budgeting needed to finance entertainment.

Middle Schoolers were able to tour the venue as well explore how much it would cost to dine at the 40/40 Club during events and general food, beverage, merchandise, tickets & suite pricing. They were ecouraged to strive for incomes that can budget a vast Lesiure & Entertainment lifestyle.

Christopher Lopez, brother of Nets starter Brook Lopez  shared how his family helps keep his brother’s current finances in order as well as helping him prepare for life after his career.”Our mother is an educator so we’ve always been encouraged to seek knowledge for ourselves. There are so many athletes who were stars and are now broke. We review his financial reports monthly. It is important for you to keep your eyes on your money and those who you place in charge of it.” is a bit of the jewels Christopher shared.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As if the day couldn’t get any better, our young males were invited to be part of the “High Five” welcome line on the Basketball Court! They were in awe as the very tall team ran through their line on the court slapping fives.
