I was in the middle of the storm as my company, Solar Sports, who had the rights to Pacman's contract was surprised by his sudden announcement that he was rescinding the contract despite no valid reasons to do so.
After a few days worth of stress, lawyers, press conferences, and many phone calls, everything finally worked out and Manny honored his contract.
I, too am more intelligent after this experience. As far as my lessons learned, I guess there were some...
Manny Pacquiao is one of the most unpredictable people in the world. The Filipino people really are interested in his life and what he does.
There is no substitute for being right. The passion and motivation to get the job done stems a lot from your belief in what you're doing.
You don't have to be educated or smart to be blinded by money and power, just human.
You should always be prepared for all possibilities and cover all your bases.
Always be magnanimous and gracious in everything that you do.
And my favorite.... "you can please some people all of the time, and all people some of the time, but you cannot please all people all of the time".
