100 Men: Wisdom, Women and Wealth - Paxton Baker (Entertainment & Sports Mogul) - 1 of 100 - The Neo Elite Audio Experience
Paxton K. Baker is an American businessman, entrepreneur and philanthropist, who has served in the entertainment, music, sports and production industries for over 30 years. Mr. Baker is a minority owner of the Washington Nationals Baseball club and currently serves as chairman of the Washington Nationals Founding Partners Group.
The interview opened with the prolific day Baker became the owner of a major league sports team, describing the mental and monetary preparation of an investment of that magnitude. Baker took audiences through pivotal career markers such as his time resurrecting the Soul Train mantle, alongside themes of leadership and service, professional advancement, and mental wellness.
Woven into the conversation are Mr. Baker’s views on current topics such as the recent NFL race controversy, players protesting, how millennial athletes can use their voice, and historically how protesting in sports was integral to the African American community.
The conversation also took a journey back to Paxton’s childhood in California where he discussed his earliest lessons and the profound way his mother, grandmother, and sister equipped him with the tools to eventually outsize all odds and circumstances.
We concluded the program with concrete financial tips, and some of the more vulnerable aspects that are often unspoken, but are important for young men to hear; themes of controlling ego, dealing with failure, how to treat people, education, and legacy.
“100 Men: Wisdom, Women, and Wealth” is a one on one father to son style interview with the highest achieving men of color sharing the information they’ve learned during their life to millennials; in order to empower, motivate, and be an example for the next generation of young men of color despite society's portrayal of them.
