If you've ever played sports at any level, I'm sure at one point or another you've envisioned yourself one day becoming a professional athlete. Today I had the pleasure of chatting with a professional in the sports world, spanning multiple continents and dozens of countries! Michael Makaab had started as an amateur footballer, and after injuries ended his playing career, he shifted to coaching and quickly rose through the ranks - eventually coaching at the professional level. Oh, and he even worked his way up to owning the bridge construction business he started working at - and this was all while he was playing! This will come full circle with some of the projects he is involved with today, so stay tuned for that. I learned a lot here today with Mike - not so much the tactical aspect, but the fundamentals of what it takes to be a successful agent. I was excited to speak with Mike before, but I'm even more excited to see how Mike and his loyal team at Prosport International will continue to build out their holistic sports management organization!
