Dynasty Athlete Representation

Dynasty Notes – Part 8

Dynasty Notes will take you through the days when Darren and I (Matthew Vuckovich) did not even know each other, to Dynasty becoming an LLC, to signing our first client, and beyond. If you have not yet read Dynasty Notes – Part 7, go ahead and read it. Enjoy Dynasty Notes – Part 8.

Since we are quickly approaching 2008, I figured now would be a good time to look back and see how far Dynasty has come in a such a short period of time. So here is the break down:

  • December 2005: was created (
  • April 2007: Darren and I formed Dynasty Athlete Representation as an LLC.
  • May 2007: We both received our undergraduate degrees.
  • August 2007: Dynasty signed its first client and Darren and I started law school.

It is now December 2007 and we have 6 clients signed with Dynasty. We also already have 4 verbal commitments for the 2008 MLB Draft. We feel that things are moving at a great pace for Dynasty. The last 4 months have been tough with Darren and me juggling law school and Dynasty. Nonetheless, we made it out alive and we feel that managing Dynasty with the 1st semester of law school was the largest juggling act that we will ever have to take. Now we know what to expect in law school and we have 3 weeks off in which we plan to work day and night. The journey so far has been such an amazing experience as we have had the opportunity to do what we love day in and day out.I could not have asked for a better partner to accompany me in this industry. Not only have we grown closer as friends and business partners, but we have been bouncing ideas back and forth to each other and I am very excited for what the New Year has in store for us. These last few months have been decently hard because Darren is going to law school full time and I am going part time. However, it actually works out really well this way and the fact that we are on different time zones allows us to be available for our clients 24/7. Until Darren graduates from law school, I will be handling the daytime operations for Dynasty. As the day goes on and I get ready for class, Darren is on his way home from class. When he gets home, he gets to work and gets everything ready for me so that when I get back from class I can just pick up where he left off. We have been able to work like this for a few months and so far and this method has worked well for the both of us.

So now we are approaching 2008 and we are more then ready to really begin to shine. Dynasty is in the process of signing 2 more clients. I won’t give it away their identity just yet; just keep checking back and we will post it at some time once all the paperwork is completed. Darren and I are expecting a lot out of ourselves and we have also decided to give back to the industry at this early stage in Dynasty’s development. Dynasty will be starting its first internship program beginning in the New Year. We were blessed by the amount and quality of applicants who applied and appreciate everyone that took the time to contact us. We feel that we have chosen 2 excellent candidates and will be releasing their names tonight on the blog.

As 2008 approaches, not only is excited for the New Year, but over at Dynasty, we are ecstatic to see what the New Year holds for us. As always, we really appreciate all who believe in and support Dynasty. I want to wish everyone Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year. Stay tuned for the rise of Dynasty!
