Debra's Message to Athletes
“Very often, I find people who are truly passionate and talented spend all of their time and energy honing their skills only in the areas of their passion.
Very often, this extreme focus leaves them ill-equipped to excel in their business. As a result, all of that talent doesn’t lead to the level of success in their business that their talent deserves.
This is particularly true in the world of sports, as athletes struggle to manage their business and their team. Too often they rely on others to make decisions only they should make, because they don’t have the business savvy and confidence they need.
I am committed to supporting athletes as entrepreneurs to create prosperous and sustainable businesses that will thrive long after they retire from their sport.”
