Steve meets Condoleezza Rice

I was fortunate to recently hear Condoleezza Rice speak at a conference. From North Korea to Russia to Syria to Iran, she spoke her truth about these hotbeds of social and political unrest. I lightened the topic load with a question regarding a recent report from a committee she headed dealing with the issues of the NCAA and college basketball. I wish I could have recorded her answer which pointed fingers at the recruitment of athletes, the athletes themselves and the educational institutions. She ended with a couple of her meaningful quotes from her parents that helped shape who she is “You have to be twice as good” and “Never think of yourself as a victim.”
