Benefits
IMG_7627.jpg

REAL KNOWLEDGE to athletes and their "village" that can be immediately applied.






REAL SUPPORT from experts, tools, and resources to cultivate and manage resilience while building your irresistible NIL brand.
 

Melva Thompson-Robinson, student-Athlete Parent (2022) Testimonial:

"My NILCOMBINE AHA Moment was when EJ. Cutliff spoke about Linkedin... I'm going to implement this knowledge today by adding the work that I do for my son's brand to my page and set up a page for him."

Holly Summers (2022) NIL Panel:
"Sivonnia said to be yourself and that she believes she is where she is because she was always true to herself. As a student, that is something I have been struggling with lately. I feel like I am an imposter or that I should change my personality to be seen more. I really appreciated that Sivonnia said that. "

Transformed Belief in Self: "I'm going to be unequivocally me and I say that to myself ever since I met [Sivonnia]."


REAL IMPACT to build confidence and create demand in the NIL space for your benefit.

Evin Norman (2022) Testimonial:

"I have been feeling nervous about transitioning from my career in Collegiate sports into starting my own branding company for athletes.  This session helped give me the confidence that I know my "stuff".  I'm going to implement the knowledge received by "being confidence when I reach out to a potential client regarding my services."

DYREEN CABAHUG
INTERNATIONAL STUDENT

 

"The host and creator of Athletes Making Moves & NILCOMBINE, Sivonnia DeBarros have done an incredible job and provided an enriching experience.
Sivonnia is super amazing I love her engaging energy and jovial spirit."

BIGGEST TAKEWAY

"As a conduit of value, accountability and education, the commitment to nurture relationships is paramount to myself and to those around me, giving a sense of dignity to my name, image and likeness and conveying the same to the people entrusted in my care."

IRIS BAILEY
MAYOR & DEAN OF STUDENTS

"It [Athletes Making Moves event] was very awesome and I was very impressed."

SUNNITA BLOUNT
ATTORNEY

"I would say the biggest takeaway was that a lot of people don't have a team because they either don't know whom they need or are discouraged due to financial difficulties. However, if they want to succeed and protect their brand it is pertinent to invest in others to assist them. "

LYNN SPEER
STUDENT ATHLETE PARENT

"If we had not come into contact with this presentation...nine times out of ten, we would have met it, possibly on the back end on the wrong side."

DR. JAZMINE CALHOUN
STUDENT ATHLETIC DIRECTOR

My biggest takeaway is "That education is the key to understand what NIL is and also understanding the disparities that some communities will face when having to deal with NIL.."

DAVID SHIELDS
 

"My biggest takeaway was the encouragement given to know yourself and your brand before taking up a partnership that may be in conflict your personal values and priorities. Sometimes we get in such a rush to make things happen that we create unhealthy business relationships simply because we haven't clearly articulated to ourselves what is important to us. 

LAUREN KING
STUDENT ATHLETE

"Building a believable, sustainable brand means just being myself and following my morals."

RHYAN SMITH
BRILLIANCE HQ

[My biggest takeaway is that] "Your brand matters and you are responsible for cultivating it. "

ARLENA RICHARDSON
SPORTS AGENT

"My biggest takeaway was the importance of relationships. The NILCombine allowed me to identify individuals to "net weave" with and obtain information about how to connect with them.
