PRESS RELEASE: M3Linked and Basketball Hall of Famer James Worthy Announce Partnership

BIRMINGHAM, Mich. – (July 21, 2021) – M3Linked, the first-of-its-kind franchise dedicated to cultivating business collaboration, announced today its official partnership with NBA legend James Worthy.

The Michigan-based brand that is revolutionizing the act of business collaboration in communities from coast to coast has welcomed Worthy as not only a member but as a partner to its LA community and an ambassador.

Worthy, a champion in both the NCAA and NBA and a seven-time All-Star with the Los Angeles Lakers and commonly known as “Big Game James,” brings his passion for teamwork and achieving excellence from the hardwood to his decades of business experience in broadcasting, sports marketing, and various other ventures. As a member of the M3Linked community in Los Angeles, he says he has gained valuable insights from the weekly M3Forums where he learns from and engages with other business leaders.

“The key for me in every endeavor has always been meaningful collaboration with takeaway value for all,” said Worthy. “I look at every M3Linked member as a coach to some extent. When you reach a plateau in sports or in business, how do you continue to grow? The M3Linked community is a place where people can connect with others and have safe discussions about their business ideas at forums, in masterminds, and more. It’s educational and accessible, and that’s important for all communities in America.”

Worthy will share his perspective to promote the value of M3Linked on a variety of mediums, adding to the rising interest in bringing its forums to new communities across America. Since rebranding as a franchise in 2019, there are 37 M3Linked communities (locations) open or in development in seven states and in Washington, D.C. Franchise opportunities are available across the US and Canada.

“We are thrilled to welcome James into the M3Linked community,” said M3Linked CEO Steven Nelick. “His combination of experiences in the highest level of athletics and business make him the ideal ambassador to share the value of putting leaders in the same collaborative environment, whether in a locker room or a boardroom. He has already been a quality contributor to his community in L.A., and we are delighted that he’s motivated to share that experience to a wider audience.”

Engagement in M3Linked communiites is built on the proprietary M3Linked Methodology that removes barriers for business leaders to connect, energize, and grow. Its tiered membership options provide “next level” experience and introductions for collaboration and solution finding. Entrepreneurs and executives at every stage can securely share their ideas and plans with an engaged group of diverse backgrounds and experiences.
