Monthly Digest 025
This is a monthly recap of resources that have helped me become the best version of me!
A QUOTE I love --
“Never give up on something that you can't go a day without thinking about."
A BOOK I finished --
Marketing Outrageously by Jon Spoelstra // If I told you that sending rubber chickens in the mail resulted in $2.5 million in season ticket sales, would you believe me? Well you should, because that happened. As Jon so eloquently states in his book, "if you aren't willing to take a few risks in marketing, become a bean counter!"
A PODCAST I listened to --
Negotiations with Former FBI Agent Chris Voss // Chris spent 24 years in the FBI's crisis negotiation unit. So you could say that he has some experience in taking a conversation wherever he wants it to go! Chris explains how the tone of your voice can trigger specific reactions and gives a few tips on how to get someone to be less defensive.
A PLACE I've traveled to --
Where: Copenhagen, Denmark
[When: 2017 & 2019]
--> visited one of my clients who played for a team called Næstved
--> more than half of the cities residents commute by bicycle
--> don't visit without strolling through Freetown Christiania!
An ARTICLE I enjoyed --
5 Boring Ways to Become More Creative // Most people typically think about creativity and boredom as opposites. But in this article, Mark argues that the process of creativity stems from boredom. Interesting hot take... but worth the read!
A VIDEO you should watch --
I'm rolling into the last month of this crazy year with this type of energy!!!
After months of planning and aggregating content, I finally launched my first online course! If you or anyone you know is interested in learning more about professional basketball, the sports agent world, I'd love it if you checked it out or forwarded the link to a friend! This course is an extension of my podcast and blog series -- all aimed to peel back the curtain of what it's like to be a sports agent and how I navigate through the challenges of the competitive sports business world.
