Fewer than 2 percent of NCAA student-athletes go on to play professionally. But the college sports experience still has strong benefits for those who go on to become business professionals, entrepreneurs, artists, and educators. Going Pro in Life is a playbook on how to leverage the unique status, skills, and networking opportunities available only to college student-athletes to achieve success after college.
While student-athletes are the main audience for the book, those who support them will find valuable information to help young adults find their way in the world. Coaches, athletic directors, guidance counselors, teachers, professors, employers, mothers, fathers, aunts, uncles, and friends are all part of the network that helps students grow and realize their full potential.
