The Most Feared Man in the Business of Sports Drew Rosenhaus' new book, Next Question: An NFL Super Agent's Proven Game Plan for Business Success, hits shelves in September 2008.
He's the shark who took the NFL by storm. Drew Rosenhaus is the man behind the money - professional football's most successful agent. A graduate of the University of Miami and Duke University Law School, Rosenhaus Sports Representation was established in 1988, when Rosenhaus was just 22 years old, making him sports' youngest registered agent, at the time.
Rosenhaus has negotiated over one billion dollars in contracts since 1993, for players at every position and with every team. Through creativity and innovation, he has negotiated several record-breaking deals (and ground-breaking endorsement deals), which have set the precedent for the sports industry. Last year, Sports Business Journal named Rosenhaus the best in the NFL Agent industry for proven excellence.
"I am a ruthless warrior. I am a hit man. I will move in for the kill and use everything within my power to succeed for my clients." It's this attitude that has inspired his NFL clients to dub him "The Shark." He represents over 80 active players, the most of any agent in the NFL, including: Terrell Owens, Chad Johnson, Warren Sapp, Santana Moss, Willis McGahee, Zach Thomas, Jeremy Shockey, Edgerrine James, Clinton Portis and Plaxico Burress.
Perhaps Rosenhaus' most indelible mark is his ability to fulfill the mantra, "show me the money," a phrase immortalized by the hit movie Jerry Maguire. In the film, Rosenhaus was the basis for the character Bob Sugar (portrayed by Jay Mohr).
Rosenhaus' upcoming book, Next Question: An NFL Super Agent's Proven Game Plan for Business Success, hits shelves in September 2008. Rosenhaus co-authored the book with his brother Jason. Focusing on business success and the art of negotiation, it will also serve as a memoir.
Here's an excerpt from Next Question:
"The next thing I knew, TO [NFL Star Terrell Owens] and I were on the Cowboys' private jet with Jerry Jones, shaking hands and closing the deal. When I think back to how upset TO was when he reported to camp without a new deal, how he was sent home during training camp, how he was suspended for the season, how he was cheated out of the arbitration case to get reinstated, how I was vilified for the "Next Question" press conference and all the hatred and predictions that I was ruined, I take with me a lesson to be learned: ignore all negativity, believe in your ability to succeed, maintain your confidence and just work hard and smart until you achieve the success that seemed so impossible along the way."
Next Question is the playbook for entrepreneurs who want to get to the top of their profession, whether they are just starting out, taking their business to the next level, or want to hone their negotiating skills. This behind-the-scenes strategy guide combines spot-on instruction with anecdotal examples that will inspire you to "air it out" in your professional life. Don't miss the book - and lecture - that turns players into champions and competitors into winners!
