Bell Curve

1
5%

During an internship, you've gained experience, met a lot of people and finally landed an athlete: You convinced a second string high school senior football tight end with no prospects for college to go pro—for a startup team forming in Belarus.

25%

The aforementioned first client blew out his knee in Belarus his first year and now the two of you have joined forces. Together you manage to get a few women and men signed to a couple of teams and you actually begin to make some money.

50%

You've joined a small, boutique agency with a couple of top athlete's names, but your stable is mostly made up of players in the smaller, lower profile leagues. You've taken a couple of scouts under your wing and they're starting to tell you about who's ready for the big leagues, and who may be someone who's becoming a drag on the agency.

75%

Because of your previous work, you’ve become known as someone with a good eye for talent and a good head for business. You now work for one of the largest agencies in the country, and you're an owner favorite: You're fair, you bring in and represent players who are stable and talented, and financially you're doing better than you ever dreamed you would.

95%

You own your own agency with several agents working for you. (They take the 11pm calls at their kids' weddings receptions now; not you.) You've got some very big name players and scouts working for you so that when your multi-million players retire, you've got some up-and-comers ready to take their place.
