This was one of my favorite podcasts and guests, Steve Hogan.
Tremendous information for anyone starting or building a career in sports management.
Steve shares practical advice on how important it is to follow your passion, doing what you love and the value of building and utilizing relationships to help your career.
"It's better to do what you love at less money on the front end than to get up everyday miserable"
The lessons learned selling cell phones and newspaper advertising early on and leveraging that previous experience to knocking his very first project at Florida Citrus Sports out of the park.
Managing the annual Citrus Bowl Parade.
But when given the opportunity, he didn't question why, he just dug in and got the job done.
So he went out and tripled the parades revenue in his first year which set the course of a 22+ year career which is now leading and carrying on the proud legacy of the Florida Citrus Sports Association.
I implore you to learn more about Steve's story and listen to this weekly podcast "Interview with Influencers".
