Dale Earnhardt: How business savvy built marketing empire

NBC Sports will take a look at the life, legacy and long-lasting impact of Dale Earnhardt who died 20 years ago this week on the last lap of the 2001 Daytona 500 on Feb. 18, 2001. This is the third chapter in an oral history series that remembers “The Intimidator” though the voices of those who knew the seven-time Cup Series champion who remains one of the biggest icons in NASCAR history.

Adjacent to the “deerhead shop” – an aluminum-sided inner sanctum of race cars surrounded by its owner’s trophy hunting-covered walls – Dale Earnhardt’s business empire started at a square maroon desk.

When Don Hawk joined Dale Earnhardt Inc in 1993 to help manage the appearances, branding and commercial opportunities for the seven-time NASCAR champion, his office primarily was in a converted brick farmhouse on Earnhardt’s sprawling property in Mooresville, North Carolina.

It’s where many major decisions were

Having got this Australian Open off to a visually arresting start with her one-legged catsuit, Serena Williams has continued to combine fashion with tennis in the manner of an expert multi-tasker.

Williams was pushed deep into a deciding set overnight by Aryna Sabalenka, but came up with some clutch tennis to secure a 6-4, 2-6, 6-4 victory and move into her 54th major quarter-final.

Then, in Williams’s on-court interview, she revealed that her attention had been diverted back to the USA on Saturday’s rest day, when she was drawn into a debate over fabrics for her fashion company.

Asked about her clothing business, Williams replied: “It was so crazy – yesterday on my day off, one of our people was out of the office … As CEO, I had to kind of

Mike Lindell’s Election Fraud Movie ‘Absolute Proof’ Has Absolutely No Proof

MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell has released “Absolute Proof,” his documentary purporting to explain the unfounded claims of election fraud, and it’s just as unhinged as you’d expect.

Lindell published the “docu-movie” on Vimeo and YouTube, and published it to Facebook, early Friday.

YouTube deleted the video on Friday after VICE News flagged the content. A spokesperson for the company said the video “violated our presidential election integrity policy.” The video had been viewed tens of thousands of times before YouTube took it down.

On his own website, Lindell has now resorted to using a version of the video hosted on Rumble, a YouTube-alternative that has become popular with the far right and QAnon followers.

But Lindell also purchased airtime on the far-right One America Network. Prior to airing the documentary, OAN aired a lengthy statement attempting to distance itself from the potentially defamatory claims it was about to air.

How to address three most common retirement concerns

Interestingly, a million dollars tends to be a default amount where people tell me they can rest easy if they can just hit that mark. Just? And then Suze Orman even recommends that people save at least $5 million before retiring! That’s an overwhelming number! While your journey is personal and your needs are unique, in my research for my book, “You Can Retire Sooner Than You Think,” I found that many happy retirees can actually enjoy a comfortable retirement with half that amount in savings. This $500,000 is a far cry lower than the $5 million that Suze recommends. Of course, having more money in savings provides an even greater cushion, but it’s not uncommon to see retirees land in the happy camp once they reach $500,000 or more.

When do I call it quits? You save for what feels like an eternity, then suddenly you’re staring
