When it comes to maximizing a player’s earning potential, nothing is more important than a positive image. Once this image is created, maintenance of that image takes over and is often more important. One way of such maintenance is to quickly recognize which endorsements and offers one should accept and which ones to decline.
A poor offer may result in a large one-time salary, but it could also eliminate the possibility of future endorsements. We will help you find and analyze endorsement alternatives to maximize your career earnings. Also, we will help you interact positively with media when such opportunities arise to ensure that the best value is created.

As soon as the plan is laid out, we will help you reach the planned goals as well as maintaining and developing your skills.
Continuous sessions may be needed to make sure that your personal career plan is up-to-date.
