Vaughn credits many others for his success, including family, coaches and teachers who convinced him that education was the means to escape a lifestyle of poverty, drugs and crime. However, it was his weight room encounter and relationship with an unlikely mentor, the late casino magnate, civic leader and philanthropist Arthur M. Goldberg, that expanded Vaughn’s thinking about life and a career after college football, exposed him to intersection of business, law and government, and empowered him pursue to pursue all three. Goldberg, whose exploits were chronicled in two books, Boardwalk Empire and War At The Shore: Donald Trump, Steve Wynn, and the Epic Battle to Save Atlantic City, was inspiration for Vaughn’s book Playing Up. Vaughn is routinely called upon to mentor, counsel and guide individuals from diverse groups by leveraging his experience and extensive personal networks of influential figures throughout New Jersey and the region, including political figures, regulatory and administrative officials, community advocates, and business leaders. By focusing on the individual’s needs, Vaughn strives to develop scenarios that enable all stakeholders to win.
