Garcia is the first woman in the U.S. to own an equal or majority stake in a professional sports league. This point about the XFL is brought up in almost any interview she has done. The success of the XFL is a very big deal to Garcia and The Rock, and given their track record together, why wouldn’t they be able to make spring football work.
The article goes on to say that around the time of their divorce, she left her job on Wall Street to manage his career, and the rest is history. Since then, she is the chairwoman for multiple companies, producer of blockbuster movies and TV shows. Invests in brands like Salt and Straw, Cava, and her new clothing line GSTQ, to name a few.
The article details how disciplined she is with her time, for example, keeping Zoom calls to just 30 minutes and waking up every morning at 6:30 am.
Garcia’s divorce from Johnson was the big turning point in her life. Since then, their team has learned from their mistakes and overcome each obstacle.
“I don’t usually have straight-out failure anymore. We have a work process that has a lot of flexibility so that, when things look like they might be turning a bit in an area where you didn’t expect, we have built-in systems to correct. I’m always looking for weaknesses—they’re simply opportunities. And DJ is great. He’s always like, “What did we learn from this? Great! We’re never going to do that again.”
This is the kind of success-making and energy that will make the XFL and help the CFL and its brand. Great vision, hire the right people, then anything is possible. We are all just along for the ride.
