decisions. The first product that contributed to Lebron James’ wealth was the signing of his Nike shoe deal. Since coming out with his signature brand James has made over 300 million in earnings from Nike. Lebron also has many major investments including ownerships of Blaze Pizza and Beats by Dre. He has also established a business of service in his establishment of a public school in Akron, Ohio called the “I Promise School”. Lebron James came out of his own pocket to provide free meals, free tuition, transportation, and guaranteed tuition at the University of Akron. This will make a great impact on the Akron community because it will inspire children to take their education more seriously and follow their dreams in life. This also impacts other NBA players across the country inspiring them to give back to their communities too.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
