Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up (1/14/2011)

I heard that two days ago Florida was the only state in the United States to not have fresh snow on the ground.  I sure hope Florida schools are selling that to their recruits.  Cancelling school for Snow Days is fun, but it’s not fun when in slightly better conditions you have to trudge through […]

No Longer A Sports Agent – Now An Athlete Advocate

Yesterday something clicked and made me renounce my title as sports agent.  Since starting in this business, I was never too fond of the phrase.  What exactly is a ‘sports agent’ anyway?  After taking Business Organizations Law as a 2L in law school, I could give you a 5 page definition of ‘agent’.  Instead, I’ll […]

Writing a blog (that is fairly popular) opens you up to many new people that you would never have had the chance to encounter had you never decided to download WordPress (or some other blog publishing program).  I like to think that my company, Dynasty Athlete Representation, has a strong reputation in a limited time […]
