STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON

STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON


 


 

 
For the past three months I've been working on one of the best stories of my career.  It appears in Sports Illustrated today and is called "Straight Outta Compton."  It's about a boy, his parents, and their quest to make it out of one of the most gang-infested areas in America.

“The true defining situation for a person is what they do when they are alone and don't have to do anything else. What do they do? Do they do frivolous things? That's when you define what you are.”
Jeff Benedict, The Mormon Way of Doing Business: Leadership and Success Through Faith and Family

“Part of the genius of (Nick) Sabin's system was that he understood that no matter the skill set, he was inheriting vulnerable kids from various backgrounds. For those times when they made poor decisions, as they invariably did, the safety net must be strong as far and wide as possible.”
Jeff Benedict, The System: The Glory and Scandal of Big-Time College Football

“Remember who you are. - Kim Clark Dean of Harvard Business School.”
Jeff Benedict, The Mormon Way of Doing Business: Leadership and Success Through Faith and Family
