the show chris koras

Chris Koras, Founder of The Show and Vice President of Sports at ESSE, joins The Rob Cressy Show to talk about his success mindset working in the sports industry.

In our conversation some of the topics Chris Koras and I cover include:

  • How he started working with sports agent Leigh Steinberg, who was the inspiration behind Jerry Maguire, and what he learned.
  • How he’s accelerated his career, what it took for him to stand out, and his success mindset.
  • What did he notice about the mannerisms and habits of professional athletes while working with them at Rep 1 Sports? What made them different or special?
  • With regards to his latest venture, The Show, how does he see the current video and content landscape?

Chris is a high performer with incredible insight and experience and no doubt you’ll get a ton of value out of this.
