Episode Description

CJ Watson was a 10 year NBA vet, who made an impact with the Golden State Warriors, Chicago Bulls, Brooklyn Nets, and more. The Las Vegas native leveraged his on court-success to be a jack of all trades off the court. Since retiring,  CJ has become a very successful Angel Investor (Instacart in 2021), an author, as well as a Vending Machine business owner. We chat about the business of children’s books, and dive deep into the strategy when owning Vending Machines, a passive income stream that doesn’t get much coverage. Check out CJ’s work at CJpens.com and healthier4uvending.com to become familiar with a Vending Machine starting point!
