EPISODE 26: Shoot For The Stars In Your Career with C.J Watson

NBA player C.J. Watson & author released his fourth book for kids this March 2023, called “CJ and His Magic Socks”. The first book “CJ’s Big Dream” received great reviews and was an Amazon best seller. CJ has two other children’s books “CJ’s Big Project” & “CJ’s Big Moment”. The new book is available now on Amazon & Kindle, links below.

Today I chat with C.J about his basketball career, his four children’s books and how to beat the odds and every obstacle to follow your dreams, and then inspire others to do the same. C.J was a lot of fun to talk to and watch out because I might just surprise him with a visit to Las Vegas for a joint school visit!


C.J. Watson’s basketball career has allowed him to play for some of the best teams in NBA history. While his professional basketball experience is impressive, his skills go far beyond the basketball court.

Philanthropy has been at the center of Watson’s career since the start of his scholarship fund. The fund honors his late grandmother, Mary L. Watson, and helps support students studying education. In his hometown of Las Vegas, Watson also started the Quiet Storm Foundation in order to foster learning opportunities that include social skills development and health and fitness activities to help the youth grow and achieve their goals in his community.

In addition to his non-profits, Watson has developed a children’s book series named CJ’s Big Dream. With this series, he hopes to inspire young kids to chase their dreams and work hard for what they want.
