The Leadership Locker Podcast: How College Athletes Can Now Monetize Their Brand

Last Updated on September 8, 2021

I recently joined Rich Cardona on The Leadership Locker to talk about what I think is one of the most exciting parts of name, image and likeness: student athletes as entrepreneurs.

This was a fun one because it combines so much of what I know about personal branding, and what I’ve learned the last six years building my own PR agency, with everything I’ve covered around name, image and likeness as a sports business reporter.
