At Doan Sports Management, we do whatever it takes to help each and everyone one of our clients reach the highest level of professional and personal success. Over the years, we have developed a first-class comprehensive management structure taking into account every facet of a professional athlete’s lifestyle.
With an emphasis on the financial success of our clients, we do much more than negotiate multi-million dollar contracts and secure sponsorship deals. At Doan Sports Management, we provide a myriad of financial planning services for our clients as well. From estate planning and tax preparation services to business planning and investment management, we provide a wealth of financial planning and management services that are second to none.
Proper financial planning is critical for the economic future of every professional athlete. While the athletes we represent make a substantial amount of money, the time period in which they can earn this money is relatively short. In fact, while most people are just beginning to reach their prime earning potential in their late thirties and early forties, professional athletes often reach the summit of their income potential long before this. Therefore, professional athletes must plan, budget, and invest to ensure a comfortable lifestyle when his/her playing years have come and gone.
We at Doan Sports Management whole-heartedly believe it’s our responsibility to assist our clientele in developing a sound financial plan and taking care of all of their financial planning needs in order to help them reach and maintain their full income potential. Doing so extends far beyond contract negotiations and involves everything from investment planning to tax preparation. Our goal is to help our clients create and implement sound investment strategies, adding significant value to each of their financial futures.
Driven by talent, dedication, and our relentless vision of maintaining successful long-term client relationships, our financial planning and management services are second to none. Our purpose is to add significant value to our clients’ financial future through the wisdom and experience of our firm. More than contract negotiators, investment advisors, and retirement planners, we provide highly effective action plans tailored to each client’s specific financial needs, including:
At Doan Sports Management, we individually evaluate and work with each client to fully understand their needs and objectives. After meeting with you and determining your individual needs and financial objectives, we will provide you with a precise financial strategy based on balanced planning, substantial asset growth, asset protection, and ultimately, long-term financial security.
With $100 million contracts and multi-million dollar signing bonuses, most fans assume players make the bulk of their money on the court or field. However, any smart athlete will tell you the bulk of their wealth comes from endorsements and sponsorships, many of which pay handsome royalties long after a player’s career has ended.
While the corporate world we live in loves using pro athletes in marketing campaigns and has no shortage of advertising dollars to spend, the window of opportunity to spend that money is quite short for the vast majority of athletes. Landing these lucrative deals takes dedication, persistence, and most of all, skill.
We candidly counsel each of our clients about their potential endorsement or marketing appeal. Although not everyone is a LeBron James or Peyton Manning, you don’t have to be a household name or superstar to make substantial off-the-field income. With our efforts, many of our clients have supplemented their incomes quite nicely with local, regional, and national advertising and endorsement deals, which is in line with our overall financial and wealth-building strategies.
Many professional athletes are known more for their charitable foundations than their athletic prowess, and we encourage every client to give back to their community in some form or another. This involvement offers an invaluable service to the community and earns the client positive recognition. We’ve assisted many clients over the years in establishing charitable foundations, hosting charity events, conducting sports clinics, and more. With so many tax benefits, being charitable is an important aspect of sound financial planning.
The playing career of a “good” professional athlete typically ends when he or she reaches their mid-thirties. Regardless of how financially secure you are when the time comes, adjusting to retired life at such a young age can be difficult. Therefore, we encourage every client to develop contacts and interests with the potential of leading to second career opportunities when their playing careers are over. Moreover, we take an active role in helping clients strategically plan their post-career business opportunities in order to help them live productive and fulfilling lives for the rest of their years.
