The day I met Florentino Perez, the President of Real Madrid FC, was a very special one for me and for those present. I truly did not know who I was actually going to meet. And then, there he was, all smiles and hand shakes for all.
For such a busy man, he had time for each and every attendee. He listened to ideas, nodded his head and was attentive while he kept his glass of wine in his hand, barely sipping it.
Meeting this personality certainly was a lesson to learn. It taught me never to judge people. Never to take as gospel what the media say, and never to be afraid to approach those we believe to be unreachable.
Our goals are there. We only have to stretch out and reach for them.
