07/26/18 – Mike Paul interviewed regarding the Jimmy Garoppolo scandal

7/26/18 From Sporting News:

“…But one sports marketing expert thinks Garoppolo, the NFL’s new golden boy, has put his own brand at risk, not to mention the brands of the 49ers and the league. Sports is still big business, with a B as in billions, warns Mike “The Reputation Doctor” Paul.

Garoppolo is the new leader of one of the NFL’s most iconic franchises. With Peyton Manning retired and Tom Brady on his last legs, the NFL views Garoppolo as the next potential face of the league. If Garoppolo wants to follow in the multi-million-dollar footsteps of Madison Avenue endorsers like Manning, Brady and Cam Newton, then the more “family-friendly” his image, the better, according to the president of Reputation Doctor LLC. The same goes for the images of the team and the league.

‘There’s benefits to being family-friendly. The more family-friendly you are, the more opportunity you have to have sponsors,’ said Paul, who’s worked with many pro athletes. ‘If you’re blocking sponsors because you’re dating a porn star, that’s not good for you. Or the team. Or the league.’

Given the two-year controversy over NFL players kneeling in protest of social justice during the national anthem, Paul doubts the league also wants to rub Garoppolo’s adult-film star girlfriend in the faces of family values-oriented fans who view pornography as ‘unsavory at best and illegal at worst.”

07/25/18 – TRUMP WORLD: Top 5 Stress, Anger & Reputation Tips in a World Gone Mad


TRUMP WORLD: Top 5 Stress, Anger & Reputation Tips in a World Gone Mad

By Mike Paul

In today’s “Trump World,” we have become much more angry, face much more stress and need more reputation advice than ever before. Here are my top 5 tips to best handle a world gone mad:

  1. CREATE SAFE BOUNDARIES TO TURN IT ALL OFF. The world is harsh. When arriving home from a long day, dim the lights to create a safe atmosphere of relaxation. Connect with family over dinner with all electronics off and just talk, laugh and smile with each other often. Set a time (perhaps 10 pm) to stop looking at your phone, computer and TV before bed. Learn to rest your eyes, mind, heart and soul before you fall asleep.
