James has always been a guy that believed in me and fought for me. You can tell that he cares and that he would do anything for you. I know I can trust him and that's not easy to find. He is more than just my agent he’s family. That's my Man!!
James has your back! When I got injured in Houston, James fought to get me the largest injury settlement possible. He set up a training program for me to get back to 100% and then worked to get me workouts with NFL teams after I was healthy.
James is a believer. He doesn't sign you unless he is fully invested and you know he is gonna give it all he's got. That's what you want in an agent, someone who believes in you and works as hard off the court as you do on it.
James has done everything he said he was going to do…he is a man who stands by his word. He definitely fights for his guys and will do whatever it takes to put his clients in the best possible situation.
Preparing for the Draft is more involved than it seems. Your success depends on a combination of factors including the right training facilities, trainers, and nutritionists – all of whom help design the proper regimen for you to be at your best leading up the draft.
PSM will prepare you for one of the biggest moments of your life by arranging a team of resources to get you ready for what lies ahead. You will be guided through the entire draft process – scouting evaluations, interview preparation, team visits, strength training, physical and mental health, and the life transition from amateur to professional athlete.
You, as an athlete, are uniquely valuable. Negotiating your contract can not be based solely on historical numbers of previous teams and players.
There is an intrinsic value to each individual athlete that must be determined. Our experience allows us to calculate and represent your unique value to prospective teams so you get the most out of your career.
Your personal brand off the field is as important as your performance on the field. We can help you establish your brand and your presence in the marketplace which in turn attracts more opportunity for you in endorsements and in life after professional sports.
As a member of the PSM team, you will gain access to our network of contacts for securing deals in various categories including shoe/apparel, trading card, memorabilia, cars, sports drinks, restaurant chains, airlines, celebrity appearances and TV/Radio spots.
Your financial success is critical, and it is of the utmost importance to us. PSM works with established financial institutions and individuals, all of whom are qualified and certified by the appropriate Player’s Associations.
We encourage our clients to participate in charitable and socially conscious activities both in their hometown and the city where their club is located. PSM is prepared to assist you in foundation development, event planning, media awareness, fund raising, and any other charitable program in order to achieve this objective.
Athletes have dynamic and abundant lifestyles, but one element that many of their lives are lacking is TIME! At PSM, you will be assisted in balancing your lifestyle. We can help by taking the burdens of day-to-day tasks and responsibilities off of your hands and allowing you to focus on mastering your craft.
In today’s world of sports, earning potential is limited to a relatively short period of time. As a result, PSM encourages and facilitates the strategic planning of post-career activities.
From the start, you will be assisted in building relationships and business contacts that will help ease the transition from the playing field to the business arena. PSM will continue to work with the you through retirement to ensure a productive and fulfilling secondary career.
