Lloyd Z. Remick, Esq. presented with Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award
Friday, I was informed that I am the Recipient of the Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award of Who’s Who in America.Upon reflection on my nearly 50 year career, and all the wonderful places it’s taken me, and people I’ve met, and the perils I’ve navigated, I am grateful to be a part of this ever changing and evolving field of entertainment and sports law.
Over the weekend, I realized that though awards are nice, the real reward has been an continues to be the satisfaction of helping people reach their desired dreams. In the entertainment and sports world not all achieve their dreams. But everyone is entitled to the pursuit and being part of that is the real satisfaction of my profession. I tell all my students that it takes three things to become a star: Talent, Luck, and Contacts and not necessarily in that order. But I have learned that those who succeed, and we all experience rejection at some point, are the ones who keep pursuing their dreams.
From reel-to-reel, to Fortnite, it goes to show that with a bit of contacts, commitment, some talent, and luck, anything is possible.
