CAREER AND BUSINESS PROGRAM
The Career and Business Program (CBP) is an outcome driven curriculum designed to address the career transition needs of active and former athletes by engaging them across multiple growth and development modalities (e.g. counseling referrals, classroom lectures, panel discussions, online learning, etc.). The CBP aims to organize quarterly cohorts with athletes by their functional area of business or industry interests and their commitment to complete the program outlined below.
The program provides participants with (1) one-on-one psychological and career counseling, (2) skill building assignments, (3) a personal/professional branding evaluation, (4) group counseling and (5) customized content based upon the interests of each cohort.
Participants will be provided with credentials to utilize a closed, web-based system that provide players with the opportunity to share business interests, ideas, needs, etc. on an ongoing basis. The following distance learning courses must be completed as a prerequisite to matriculate through the program.
General Business: Participants will be introduced to the most common functional areas of business (i.e. human resources, finance and accounting, sales, marketing, customer service, research and development, operations, general administration and information systems technology). Each participant will select a competency focus and a secondary interest. Session outcomes include a written career goal plan and selection of a mentor from the PNE Mentor Network.
Finance: Participants will be provided group and individual instruction on personal and business finance. The group setting will provide participants with a theoretical framework for understanding personal finance with a focus on: cash flow analysis, debt load management and monitoring of financial services professionals. Individual sessions will match players with an accredited financial services professional that will help participants organize their financial portfolio. Session outcomes include a personalized financial audit and a net worth statement.
Career Selection: Participants will be provided with a process for selecting a career track. Career track options include (a) shadowing, internship, employment and management trainee experiences; (b) non-profit start-up/management; or (c) for-profit startup/management.

Each participant that satisfactorily completes the program will be allowed to pitch a business opportunity to an investor via the group cohort.

Athlete in each cohort are eligible to earn commissions, consulting fees, and equity in income producing projects.
