Meet One Of The Top 25 Most Influential Women In Sports Today

Kelli Masters is one of the Top 25 Most Influential Women in Sports Today. She is an NFL sports agent who has represented more professional athletes than any woman in the industry, having served as an agent/contract advisor to players in every NFL draft since 2006. In 2010, she made history as the first woman to represent a first-round pick in the NFL Draft.

In this episode, I had the opportunity to dive in deep with Kelli about the reality of her job as a sports agent… and the reality of what it takes to overcome adversity, be a pioneer, and be DIFFERENT, regardless of one’s chosen industry. It just so happens that in the male-dominated, seemingly glamorous job of sports agent, Kelli has had to overcome more challenges than most. She reveals what she specifically does to represent her clients so well and how staying purpose-driven has allowed her to positively IMPACT so many young men and women today.

Listen in to my friend Kelli Masters now and see how she handles her business and makes an incredible IMPACT on the many lives she touches.
