WE. ARE. BACK. And so is Matt Pegler!
Welcome to Season 2 of What's Next!
For those of you who tuned in to Season 1 Episode 7, Matt needs no introduction. The guy is as genuine as they come and has been working his butt off to make The Pegler Agency a success. We couldn't think of a better way to kick off Season 2 than to check in on Matt's progress. In this one, Matt gets into the lessons he's learned since beginning his journey as an agent. For those of you who are in or considering entering the player agency field, this episode is a great opportunity to take Matt's experience and apply it to your own practice. This is just another example of how we can avoid years of detours and mistakes by learning from others who have taken a similar path before us.
