Friday Wrap-Up

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-up (12/18/2015)

It has been a couple weeks of major travels, with trips from Fort Lauderdale, Florida to Portland, Oregon and then to Vancouver, Canada. I was able to check out Nike’s headquarters, University of Oregon athletic facilities and athletic technology company RYU in the process. I also had the unique opportunity to run combine drills and play a little 7-on-7 with former NFL players. Meanwhile, business at Heitner Legal and Dynasty Dealings is booming and I continue to pump out new articles on Forbes and Inc. I wish everyone Happy Holidays. Let’s wrap up the year with strength! As always, here are some stories you may have missed over the past week:

Darren Heitner created Sports Agent Blog as a New Year's Resolution on December 31, 2005. Originally titled, "I Want To Be A Sports Agent," the website was founded with the intention of causing Heitner to learn more about the profession that he wanted to join, meet reputable individuals in the space and force himself to stay on top of the latest news and trends.

Heitner has represented numerous athletes and sports agents as legal counsel.
