If you worked for the winning Houston sports organization,
what would it be like to show up for work the day after your team advanced
to the finals? How about after your team just landed a big time recruit?
You would not dread showing up for work the next day would you?
If you work for the team on the losing end of the big game it will hurt
even more but at least you have passion for your job. Does that sound like a daily grind?
Do you miss being "between the lines"? Do you miss the thrill of the last second
shot? What if you could be a part of the group that makes that moment happen? Front
offices of sports related businesses are filled with former and failed athletes
as well as those who just love the game. These sports executives once thought,
"do I have what it takes to work within the sports industry"? Once you review
what is available to you, you will see that breaking into the front office is not
as impossible as you once though.
