Dan Borislow with his team MagicJack is getting a lot of criticism in womenâ€™s football circles about his unorthodox way of getting things done. I admit, the way he is going about things is unusual.
Borislow is unorthodox in his womenâ€™s football business, but effectively saved the league and extended the sport, earning the right to do it his way.
When Washington Freedom was about to disappear forever, Borislow did what nobody else was willing to do and that was put his own money on the line.
His MagicJack team is not subsidized by anyone. Not by US Soccer, not by the government, not by Title IX. Its his money and he can do it his way.
In life there are those who do and those who donâ€™tâ€¦those who are idle.
Those who do, are busy doing and have no time to criticize. Those who are idle, who donâ€™t do, make themselves feel better by criticizing and belittling the doers. Donâ€™t worry about the critics, they donâ€™t matter. Their contribution to getting things done is minimal. By trying to suck initiative, energy and creativity out of the doers, they are the parasites of life.
Critics are like eunuchs. They have seen how itâ€™s done, they know how itâ€™s done, they just canâ€™t do it.
