Leaving a LEGACY with Maria Taylor

Show Notes:

  • Maria used to live in Chicago and loves watching “The Last Dance” to relive memories but was surprised by just how many issues the team faced
  • Even though she is a huge fan of Kobe Bryant’s “Mamba Mentality”, it seems that Michael Jordan was the originator
  • She wants to bring that same type of mamba mentality to her career in broadcasting and is willing to make sacrifices although some of those sacrifices might be changing due to the pandemic
  • It was a challenge for her being very tall early in high school but she eventually understood that her height was a big advantage in sports that helped her become accepted
  • Volleyball became her release because she started playing it for fun and soon her drive for basketball diminished because it felt like a chore
  • The relationships that she formed at the University of Georgia are the things that she cherishes the most from her time there
  • Sports prepared her to be ready once that red light goes in all aspects of her life outside of broadcasting
  • Mentors like Robin Roberts and Carla Williams helped play a major role in her success and she wanted to do the same for the next generation by co-founding “The Winning Edge Leadership Academy”
  • Words of Wisdom from Tom Maria Taylor: “You’ll be remembered by how you make people feel.”
