Dream Big with The King of NIL

Running Back, Norfolk State University Football

Rayquan Smith, The King of NIL, joins us this week to tell us how he got his start in NIL and went on to secure over 75 deals.

Playing football for a smaller school meant that Rayquan did not have the resources that many larger schools offered when the NIL laws went into effect. However, he didn't let that slow him down - he spent hours doing his own research and developing a plan for how he could make NIL work for him, and kept an open mind throughout the learning process. Facing rejection after his first attempt at making deals only fueled him to continue trying harder and ignoring anyone who didn't support him.

As someone with humble beginnings, Rayquan certainly relates to those just getting started in NIL and offers valuable advice for those who are just getting started.

Watch the full episode to learn more about how Rayquan Smith came to be The King of NIL and his advice on NIL.

In this episode:
  • His approach to getting that first NIL deal
  • How to use your NIL, even if you aren’t in the spotlight at a big school
  • Advice on managing your time wisely
  • His top 3 social media tips
