Why we love working in sports

Most of us wanted to work in sports because we love it.  The opportunity to do something you are passionate about and earn a living at the same time.  It’s one of the secrets to success, right?  Unfortunately, we may get caught up in the day to day business, the grind or the stress and forget from time to time why we are here in the first place.

Over the past year I’ve been fortunate to meet with numerous sports executives at properties throughout the county while conducting sponsorship workshops.  The workshops begin with introductions and each person shares why they love working in sports.  As we start a new year, I thought it might be nice to relay some of the comments and hopefully remind each other why we do what we do.

I love…

“Getting to go the ballpark/arena/stadium for work each day.”

“Being able to make a positive impact in the community.”

“Working with a variety of companies (sponsors) and getting the opportunity to learn a little bit about so many different industries.”

“How every day is different and you never know what is going to happen.”

“The people I work with.”

“That we are part of creating experiences for kids, families and fans.”
