Sports is one of the fastest-growing industries around the world. This industry has a very complex structure that involves many people in different areas in order to keep this industry running. For some people, sport is a mode for gambling and entertainment; for others, it is a mode of recreation and fitness; for athletes, it may lead to high personal achievement or fortune and fame. Yet, for business-minded individuals, sports is a growing marketplace with many opportunities for investment. Nowadays, anyone can work in sports industry, even non-athletes can achieve high paying jobs. One career that in my opinion has a very significant role in the sports industry is event coordinator. Sporting events play an important role in generating income
There have been numerous occasions throughout my life that have fashioned my character into what it is today. However, one instance stands out, and that was within my racing career at the 2012 I.K.F. Grand Nationals. It was during this race, that I learned the importance of optimism and determination, which ultimately led to my Grand National title. I had several races that week, all of which ended poorly, barring the finale. My dad observed that I was becoming discouraged and pulled me aside for a pep talk. He told me to always race with my heart, finish strong and ultimately it will lead to success. After qualifying, I was seated 2nd place and eager for my final event. I entered the track with tremendous determination and drive, confident that when the green flag dropped nothing could stop me from achieving my goals.
Close to a year ago, my brother and I went to Darlington South Carolina for a NASCAR race. This was our third race and third time being in this crazy but wonderful environment. The people were drinking, the laughter was loud but genuine, and the race was thrilling. The excitement you get from hearing the loud cars, seeing them crash and the excitement of the crowd was overpowering. I had goosebumps from every bit of it. The smells from the burnt rubber, the smell of the smoke from the cars after hitting the wall or crashing into another car, the blinding lights from the fireworks when the race was over, and people going crazy was so overpowering. The parties that night were entertaining. People treated complete strangers like family, and fed

I remember it like it happened yesterday. It was a warm sunny day on October 27 2013, and we were driving to my sister Amy’s house in Kaukauna. We had to drop off a set of bunk beds at her house for my niece Mia. My dad, mom, my sister Anna, and I were all in one car, while my two brothers, Andrew and David, were in the Ford Ranger ahead of us. We were having fun in the car, talking, laughing and listening to music, until we came up on a yield sign. My brother Andrew proceeded through it first, when a black Envoy came speeding around the corner, too fast to slow down. When Andrew saw it coming he tried to swerve, but the car was going too fast, and it was too late. The car hit the truck,
On Monday, I continued testing the car on the track with different weights where I left last week, but the problem was that the wires broke while I was testing the car. We had resoldered the wires again, so it does not stop again while testing the car on the track. I accidently dropped the car, this is when the car stopped working. Whenever I tested the car, the front wheels did not work. We did not have time to solve this issue, so as a group, we decided to solve this problem on Thursday because that is when we have practical.
I chose Kyle Busch as my NASCAR driver. He is sponsored by Skittles, M&M’s, Pedigree, and NOS. These sponsors feel that it is important to sponsor him because he is a talented racer so he gives them good publicity. With the sponsors on his car and uniform, they are getting advertisement from all of the viewers of the race. His talents are key to this because if people look up to how he is a good driver they will think that using his brands they will be like him. He has won a good amount of races and has proved to be an elite racer. His sponsors don’t match his racing, however, they make people think that if they eat snickers they’ll be like him.
I was time traveling to 1969 where all the good cars where i went back to the place where they were I time traveled to to California where all the cars were i thought I would be nicer than now
Growing up as a kid, I have always dreamt of playing sports on a professional level, while making millions of dollars, and having my family there to support me. I am most certain that I was not the only kid with that mindset. In fact, all of the friends I grew up with had the same mentality as I did. We all knew we wanted to become professional athletes, but did not even think about the college level
Since I am working for him a few years already, we are some kind of friends.
After graduating from the University of Florida with my master’s in Sport Management, my goal is to move back to Atlanta, GA and start a promising career in the sport marketing industry. However, I know that to be successful within a career, I must be aware of both my positive and negative attributes. Thus, my awareness of strengths and weaknesses will better guide me to be better employee and person over all.

Nevertheless, with each trait that I have acquired, I have learned that each trait has shaped me to be a well-rounded individual who is prepared to enter the workforce to
