Interview With The Agent

Interview With The Agent

On New Years Eve, when I warned to look for amazing new features in 2007, I was not kidding around!

As you notice on the bottom of the page, there are two other contributors to this site besides myself. Chris Lesley has made his presence with an international look to some Sports Agent issues, but where the hell has Matthew Vuckovich been?

Matthew has been cold calling/emailing many Sports Agents looking to secure interviews for this website, and he has succeeded. In what we at – I Want to be a Sports Agent believe to be a breakthrough new column for the entire industry of sports, and especially the Sports Agent world, we present to all of our readers a new thread of interviews with established agents. A new interview will be posted approximately once every 2 weeks.

I am ridiculously thrilled about the new column, and I hope that you all enjoy the new insights that this site will be receiving from those who are experts in the field of being a Sports Agent.
