Don’t listen to what everybody is telling you.
We were all told that if we wanted to get our foot in the door, sales is the way to go. Nope. Selling is the way to go for salespeople. Media is the way to go for media people. Marketing is the way to go for marketing people. Make sense?
This isn’t the job for someone who simply wants to be in sports. This is the job for the person who is driven to be the best, wants to learn how to be great and wants to be the next president of a team.
