A storm on the way? You couldn’t tell by a crowd of more than 200 at the Mission Event Center on Sept. 14 at the Greater Mission Chamber of Commerce‘s Buenas Tardes Luncheon. Dat Nguyen, former Aggie and Cowboy, packed the house as guest speaker.
Business and community leaders, and city officials listened attentively as the retired Dallas Cowboys middle linebacker shared his story and his perspective of applying sports to business.
“Know your team. Know what motivates each player,” added Nguyen.
Nguyen, who also coached with the Cowboys and the Aggies, is now a proprietor of a Chick-fil-A restaurant in Fort Worth.
“My key to college and pro football success is basically the same as business. Dream it and visual it before it happens. Take the risk,” proclaimed Nguyen.
