How we spend our Saturday's. Proud of this growth. Had to share with you. This past Saturday we held our annual "Seven Bucks/Team Rock Summit" at our WME offices in Los Angeles. This highly strategic brain trust event was conceived by my manager and our Seven Bucks co-CEO and former Merrill Lynch VP @danygarciaco to bring together all our team members & execs to chop up and discuss best practices on how we continue to push forward and become an even more global force. Continue to build corporate enterprise. All departments represented: Seven Bucks Prods, Seven Bucks Digital, WME partners, Droga5 Advertising, our LA and NY publicists (Viewpoint & Jonesworks) our brilliant attorneys (Harold Brown & Bianca Levin) our ace financial manager (Howard Altman) who I insist sits next to me - always gotta keep the $money close;). And our management holding company, The Garcia Companies and their bright, hard working ALL FEMALE executive team. Can't tell you guys what a day like this means to me. All this started from $7 bucks in my pocket when I was 24yrs old. We had our first Seven Bucks Summit 3 years ago with only 8-10 people. This past Saturday, we held our summit in WME's biggest conference room and as you see, the joint was "sold out and standing room only". Growth like a rocket. Very proud that we've become the most sought after enterprise in Hollywood. But like with any successful venture, it all comes down to the team you have around you. Surround yourself with hungry, creative and optimistic humans who bring brilliant ideas and committed to seeing your vision thru. All superstars in this room and one big, brown, bald tattooed man who drives his pick up truck and says "f*ck yeah and f*ck no" a lot. Grateful. I'll leave you with my Seven Bucks philosophy which our entire team has engrained in their DNA, "We never want to just play in the game, we want to change the way the game is played". Now go out there, put in the hard work and create your own hungry, brilliant team. I look forward to hearing about your "Team Summit" one day. Driving a pick up and saying f*ck yeah and f*ck no is optional. #SevenBucksSummit #2017 #ChangingTheWayTheGameIsPlayed #FuckYeah

RIP Superfly. My family, @saronasnukawwe gave me this amazing pic she took of her dad only a few short months ago. I immediately got choked up when I first saw this as she told me he sat there in this chair for hours and just watched his old wrestling promos and matches... in complete silence. Never said a word, just watched and reflected. Got choked up over the thought of what must've been going thru his mind in these hours watching himself... pride, joy, regret, satisfaction, pain, love. I wondered if at any point he sat here wishing he could do it all over again. Or, if he sat here completely at peace with his incredible, inspiring, wildly successful and at times extremely complicated life he's lived. Well before there was WrestleManias, PPV's, big money guaranteed contracts, the internet or pro wrestling being coined, "sports entertainment", it's hard to articulate how "on fire" this man was in the early 80's and how much he impacted and electrified the wrestling business' bottom line. His wrestling promos had a quiet intensity that made you believe every word that came out of his mouth and you just knew that you had to run down to Madison Square Garden and buy your tickets because he was going to electrify that night. Another Garden sell out. I grew up with this man as our families lived together in Hawaii and North Carolina. His children Jimmy Jr, Liana, Sarona and Ata all idolized him, as did I. Awesome memories. To the world, he was known as the iconic Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka but to me he was and will always be, simply.. uncle. Rest in peace, uncle. Fly high bruddah..now you have real wings.
