    Marketing, Branding, and Biz Talk with Jordan Burroughs | Ep. 80

    Marketing, Branding, and Biz Talk with Jordan Burroughs | Ep. 80

    When it comes to branding and marketing, 5x World/Olympic Gold Medalist Jordan Burroughs has come to set the standard. This past Saturday he tweeted about the marketability of college wrestlers, and much talk followed, including from myself! Since I have a heavy footprint in marketing in the wrestling community, and Jordan is the biggest guy in the sport, it only made sense to hop on the mics and chat about the marketability of wrestlers, social media, branding, and business. Hope this one brings some more insight and value to both wrestlers & fans!
