Taking the next step from collegiate athletics to professional athletics is an incredible opportunity, but also a massive undertaking. It is often the case that athletes rely on a team of representatives to guide them through this transition. In many ways, taking that next step is about training for life.

And it’s simply absurd to expect someone to manage that process during a high-income career that often comes to a screeching halt before the age of 30.
