the ``SportsBizMiss``

Kristi started writing about legal and business issues in sports when she was in law school. Despite going to work in real estate and corporate law, she kept blogging on the side and eventually landed the opportunity to write for Forbes. Kristi's career trajectory changed forever the day she was hired away from her law practice to become ESPN's first - and still only - female sports business reporter. Since then, Kristi has written for SportsBusiness Journal, Golf Digest, Fox Sports, Bleacher Report, SB Nation and more on topics such as collective bargaining, sports marketing, the economic impact of sports and the business of college sports. Today, she is a recognized expert on the business of college sports, authoring a book on the topic and working as a consultant in college sports.

My Game-Changing Moment

I once sat on a panel of accomplished female leaders and was asked a thought-provoking question: what was your game-changing moment?

For me, it was the day I started calling myself an "expert." It was in an email to an editor at Forbes, to which he responded by asking me to join his team as a contributor. From there, I landed two book deals and a full-time job offer from ESPN to become its first - and still only - female sports business reporter.

My first published book, Saturday Millionaires, has been used in dozens of college classrooms across the country and became the catalyst for my speaking career.

“She is the consummate professional, completely knows her business inside and out and is completely relatable and personable as a speaker.”

I met Kristi Dosh at a legal marketing event in St. Louis. Upon learning that she would be presenting, I immediately registered for this event and knew that I’d find it extremely beneficial since I followed Kristi on social media. Kristi’s presentation did not disappoint. She provided applicable strategies and helpful tips in the areas of blogging and social media that are still being discussed among LMA St. Louis group months later. Nicely done, Kristi. Keep up the good work!

Kristi is an enthusiastic and engaging speaker. I reached out to her in hopes of her coming to speak to our local American Advertising Federation club and she responded almost right away. Our members were excited to hear her share her experiences in the sports world and she did not disappoint! She connected the dots on how sports marketing can help you propel your own brand and she urged us to find our own field to focus on.

Kristi delivered a powerful message to our 2016 Miami Dolphins Rookie class about the importance of having a “WHY” behind their social media brand. Kristi challenged the rookies to be intentional in building their social media brand in order to maximize the NFL shield and platform while it exists!

Kristi recently spoke on “Power – How to use it in a man’s world” at a Jacksonville Women’s Leadership Forum event. Wow, what a dynamic speaker with loads of great thoughts, real world examples and things to take away and put in to practice! Her ability to engage the audience and provide thought provoking ideas was outstanding. I look forward to seeing her speak again soon!

Kristi graciously agreed to share her knowledge as a speaker in the JAXCoE Distinguished Speaker Series, a monthly event for entrepreneurs at Unity Plaza in Jacksonville, FL. Her presentation was top notch – professional, engaging and chock full of valuable information. Attendees are still talking about the value they took from the event. I’m delighted to know Kristi and look forward to many more interactions with her in the future.
