Show Notes

Jeanie Buss sits down with Jay Shetty to talk about believing in your own strength in an industry with more male leaders, how you can learn from your own mistakes and take the lead, and that gender doesn’t matter, it’s the people and the talent they have.

Jeanie Buss is the controlling owner and president of the Los Angeles Lakers. She is the daughter of Jerry Buss, a real estate investor who later owned the Lakers and other sports businesses. At age 19, she started in the family business as general manager of the Los Angeles Strings professional tennis team, and later became the owner of the Los Angeles Blades professional roller hockey team.
