Great podcast

Kevin’s stories and insights are both motivational and relatable. Just as good of a person off air as on air. Joy to listen to

Great Daily Listen

Kevin set out to do a podcast a day for a whole year, which is quite honestly, ridiculously hard to do.

I really enjoy his perspective as an active agent who has the live, realistic view on the industry and have learned a lot of things that I haven’t really even thought of before.

The length of the podcast (usually less than 15 minutes) is also really awesome for a quick listen, compared to some of the other podcasts I listen to, for which I really need to make sure I stay focused over a ling period of time.

Some of the guests he has brought on the show are also incredibly smart and experienced, and it goes to show how sincere Kevin is at helping future athletes or students who wants to work in the sports industry, as an agent or not, to prepare themselves for what’s ahead.

Highlight recommend it; Awesome stuff man🙌
