A Conversation With PG Sports Founder Paul Guarino
PG Sports is on the rise
ONE37pm: How did you develop the concept of PG Sports
Guarino: I started a Twitter page back in 2011 because I knew I wanted to be a sports agent. I made these Marshawn Lynch “Beast Mode” t-shirts to promote my business. I reached out to a graphic designer in terms of creating the PG Sports logo, and from there we just kind of had a contest to win the Beast Mode shirts. From there, I just started building relationships with athletes doing things like interview scheduling, making t-shirts, sports marketing, and sponsorships. I have clients in the UFC, WNBA, overseas, and more. The only sport I don’t work with yet is baseball. I currently have about 28 clients on my roster and it’s cool to see all of the connections.
ONE37pm: What does a day in your life look like for you?
Guarino: I’m on my computer pretty much all day every day. I’m scheduling phone calls, handing email, reaching out, and doing virtual calls. I’m pretty busy!
ONE37pm: Who are some of the clients you represent?
Guarino: I represent Kimbo Slice Jr., Renee Montgomery, Brandon Copeland, and Crystal Dangerfield to name a few.
ONE37pm: What’s on the calendar for 2022?
Guarino: Right now I don’t have anything special planned. Just more content, partnership deals, and my goal is to add new people to my roster. I also want to build bigger relationships with brands!
ONE37pm: Any advice you have for someone who wants to do what you do?
Guarino: Consistency is key! Make sure you stick with it!
