Here is the deal. I am getting a number of emails, phone calls, tweets, etc from people who are having problems in advancing their career or even getting getting a job in sports. It’s tough, I get it. However, relationships are the most powerful thing you can develop in the sports industry (or any industry for that matter).
Let me make this simple. Most of the time it does NOT matter how smart you are, talented you are, or how much experience you have. However, it does matter WHO you know, and more importantly WHO knows about what you have to offer. Think about it. We stay loyal to those we know, like, and trust… even if someone is better than another person at a certain skill. It is all about the RELATIONSHIPS!!!
You must add value to others. Period! Watch my quick video about 4 easy ways to add value to sports professionals to ensure you get a job in sports.
