As an athlete, and families of the athlete, you are trained to focus on the athletic components of sports only. This thought process is developed at the ground level of your athletic career.What is not emphasized and many times avoided. There is so much more that you are required to know to be a successful professional in sports. The window of opportunity to maximize your career on and off of the field are slim if you aren't advised properly in the world of sports business.
Statistics have proven that it will be a socially and fiscally traumatic experience for the athlete and their family if there is a failure to prepare. Your education on the business side of sports can't begin the moment you decide to turn professional. In 2016, between AAU and 7 on 7 circuits etc., the education process has never been needed more that it does now. At the earliest level of high competitive sports, there are skilled and well versed parties that are waiting to pray on the athlete and their families based on their relationships with others. This happens due to the inability to get the credible and factual information needed.
Our team of executives, advisers, and networks are well versed in all of your needs of sports and business on and off of the field. Our success in our respective fields ensures that you will have protection and the knowledge to make the best decision for you and your family, independent of any outside influence or posturing. Our data base will provide credible information based on the facts of sports business that you would have a difficult time accessing otherwise. The oral history of "he said, she said" regarding sports business is obsolete and dangerous. Failure to "Vet" the process, and the people guiding you through has proven to have an adverse effect on the growth of an athlete.
Because we are in the era of social media and technology, the direct access that people have with the athlete can compromise his or her ability to obtain their goals on and off of the field. We provide the protection, through education, that you need in order to ensure that you are Responsible, Respected, and Remembered. It is in our humbled, yet professional, opinion that sports is not a GAME. Sports is all BUSINESS and the athlete is the "CEO" of their own business. This holds true at every level where the competition keeps score and the outcome results in someone winning or losing. Failure to educate, empower, and protect your best interest in the unknown and unforeseen will have you asking yourself the questions, Where did I go wrong? How can I fix this? Why did this happen to me? It can, and will send you to your POSTGAME before you even knew it was coming.
If the athlete is fortunate enough to go professional, they are more than likely to experience many of the circumstances listed below. The following situations are only a few of the circumstances that an overwhelming percentage of athletes, and entertainers experience either during or IMMEDIATELY at the end of their playing careers. Male and female alike, all of these examples are sudden life changing events:
- Loss of income
- Fear of society
- Loss of direction
- Standard of living
- Coping with change
- Family expectations
- Career opportunities
