The Dream It’s Not An Impossible Dream

Business Coach For College Scouts & Recruiting Services 

I started my recruiting service in August of 1989 with nothing more than just heart and determination.

The only thing I knew about recruiting was to go to the gym, go to games and watch players then, hopefully, get to talk to them.

The process was simple, not so confusing, and very exhilarating. It was a great time and the recruiting business brought me much joy.


Setting up your own recruiting service is complicated. If it’s not then you are one of the passionate ones who care about the many student-athletes that really need your help.

If you do not have the burning desire or the incredible passion to get out to do it day after day, then you won’t do it because you don’t have the joy or the love of it.

Slipping through the cracks is a common theme among so many student-athletes who are not ranked and who are ignored in the process all because they don’t have a number next to their name. It’s unfortunate but true. So…what are you going to do about it?

Shouldn’t the talented student-athlete, who has done everything by the book and the laws of their community, be given a fair chance to live out their passions and their dreams of college placement?

These opportunities are more powerful than gold, stronger than the materialistic things it can buy. Education is a lifetime which outlasts the fortunes of gold.

Without the opportunity college is a fairy tale.

Without recruiting it becomes a nightmare.

You need a checklist on paper that has a list of objectives needed to set up your recruiting service, pointing you in the right direction pushing you to fulfill your greatest desires of representing student-athletes who, without your help, will be in constant danger of a minimum wage lifestyle.

I’d like to know what you think about this topic. Please feel free to leave me a comment and the comment section below. Your comments are the oxygen I need to continue to develop and grow! Thank you!

    What training should an individual take prior to becoming a Scout?

      At some point we may be offering train. In the meantime I suggest you develop 10 strong questions to ask parents. Your presentation should be what you’re going to offer the parents and their student athlete. Be strong when it comes to the price. have a strong closing question, something like “What can we do to get the process moving forward today!”
