        Financial Literacy
        Pillar 5

        The final course, Financial Literacy, will not only teach student-athletes how to manage their finances, but also how to build long-term wealth through investing and leading a financially responsible life.

        Philanthropy and Community Service
        Pillar 4

        Giving back to the community is a critical part of brand-building and maintaining a positive association with your brand. The Philanthropy and Community Service course covers various ways for student-athletes to give back throughout the course of their career.

        Legal, Tax, and Compliance
        Pillar 3

        In the Legal, Tax, and Compliance course, student-athletes will learn important business skills and NIL-related regulations they will need to follow. Valuable tax-related information is also included as navigating taxes as an independent contractor or starting a business can be tricky for young adults.

        Influencer and Brand Relations
        Pillar 2

        Influencer and Brand Relations teaches student-athletes how to determine and increase their value to potential partners, negotiate deals, and commons mishaps to look out for.

        Pillar 1

        In our Personal Brand Development course, student-athletes will learn why it's necessary to build your own personal brand, as well as actionable steps to take to get started.

            Mark Koesterer

            Welcome. I’m Mark Koesterer, founder of The Players NIL, and I have a deep passion for this work. My background includes a long and extensive relationship with the sporting industry. As a former college athlete, I have first hand experience navigating the collegiate world. As a father of college athletes, I was actively involved with supporting the requirements needed to compete at the highest level, while maintaining focus on broader life goals. As the president and CEO of Sports Studio, I helped build a successful Hollywood sports and entertainment company.

            At Sports Studio, I interacted with athletes, brands, production companies, professional sports leagues, and agents. All of this gave me expert-level experience in digital marketing, branding, production, group licensing, sponsorship, influencer marketing, apparel design and production, and fan engagement.

            It’s ALL of this collective experience that I offer, while bringing you a premier level of service that will help you reach your goals. If you would like to learn how to build your brand and maximize your NIL potential, contact me today.

            The Players NIL is built for YOU.
