Legendary Sports entrepreneur & author Brandon Steiner joins Host Paul Thompson for this episode of “The Wake-Up Call” Podcast. After starting the Steiner Agency with just $4000, Brandon turned his company into a multi-million dollar business while simultaneously becoming the biggest name in the history of Sports Marketing. He quickly became the best in the field, connecting thousands upon thousands of athletes with companies for brand deals throughout his career.

 

Since leaving the Steiner Agency, Brandon’s speaking and writing focuses on the importance of “waking up broke”-- the idea that you have to continue to have the fire and passion inside that you had when your back was against the wall. He and Paul talk at length about what that means, and the projects he is working on next.
