Came across a founder on linkedin with an incredible solution for an often unspoken issue.
Quite often we hear about college kids on athletic scholarships with a very real pressure to go professional. Is it because of their athletic skills that they feel the need to enter the pro’s? Quite often it is because they need an income. Going to college is very expensive even if you have a scholarship. What’s even more expensive is the sacrifice most families make to encourage their children to reach out to college. There is no way the student can ignore those facts and there is no way these issues are not what molds their decision to go professional perhaps before they are actually ready.
Imagine the stories told of NBA players attending all four years of college or still maintaining an income after career ending injuries. This could happen if they learned early how to market themselves and hold down a job while in college. We won’t even mention the “distractions” they’d avoid if they were busy just working, studying and participating in their sport.
