Just like any other professional, sports agents need a team of professionals that they can count on. Statistics do not bode well for professional athletes in terms of them being properly advised in terms of management. This means that there is an opportunity for professionals with the proper skill-set to help professional athletes.
Sports agents are gatekeepers and facilitate appropriate matters to individuals that are experts in their respective profession. By knowing the business and connecting with sports agents, professionals can expand the scope of their business and help serve an under-serviced market.
By no means is the sports agent industry saturated with enough qualified individuals and professionals; the market awaits willing participants who can connect and collaborate with sports agents. One of the main benefits of working with sports agents, unlike any other industry, is that the sports space is recession proof. Every year a new group of athletes is drafted into all of the major respective leagues, allowing for qualified professionals to seek new clients.
