Maybe You Shouldn't Pursue a Career in Sports

why you shouldn't work in sportsWhy would you pursue a career in baseball, basketball, or football?

You probably love the game, watch highlights over and over, scour prospect lists and spend more time on your fantasy team than your assignments at work…but that doesn’t mean you should work in sports.

A job is a job and sports are a fun pastime, right?

 You are supposed to work in a cubicle and then watch sports at night to relax.

This is the way the world works:

  • Go to job you don’t really like
  • Complain on Facebook about your boss
  • Get bored
  • Commute home
  • Then insert fun time.


This is the rhythm of life and there is nothing wrong with it.

Do not change. Do not take an 8-week online course that will teach you the skills to do something you love on the business side of sports ranging from rugby and cricket to sports agency and analytics.

Do not get info about our Baseball GM and Scouting course and definitely, 100% do not learn the industry from World Series ring toting mentors like Dan Evans and Larry D’Amato.

You really shouldn't check out our new Baseball Analytics course either, because you wouldn't want to be on the cutting edge of sports analysis.

Do not click here to register for a course that will make you happy, because happy isn’t meant for the workplace, right?  

Just keep doing what you are doing. Nothing to see here.
