Product Description:
Have you ever thought about working in sports? If you are a sports fan, you have probably dreamed about working for your favorite team, driving to work at the same stadium that you have such fond game day memories from or walking out onto the court where your childhood hero made the unthinkable play to win the big game. Perhaps you are about to graduate from college and desire to work in the sports world. You understand business and you love sports - why not combine the two? Each year there are thousands of college graduates with sports degrees that begin looking for a handful of sports jobs with an actual professional team or league. Many settle for something else that isn't even related to sports and go down a career path that doesn't seem very exciting. Unfortunately many people think they want to work in sports, but don't ever find the opportunity. This doesn't have to be the case. Yes, you have to realize that the sports job industry is very competitive - just like sports itself. However, there is a way to break through. It just takes a little different thinking - a mindshift. Most people overlook the opportunities right under their nose and give up on their dreams when they can't find the dream job the first time around. I am here to provide you with helpful hints and ways to understand why you shouldn't give up, why you can work your way into the industry you are passionate about. After you read this book, you will have a different understanding, a different mindset on how to get into sports business. It just requires a Mindshift. After working in and around the sports industry for almost 20 years, I have held various roles with different companies that have allowed me to become more engaged with sports than I ever imagined I would be. When I started out in college, I wasn't aware of any sports marketing or sports business degrees. Towards the end of my college years, I found a job doing something I enjoyed and actually got paid to do it. It didn't take long for me to realize that my company was also doing work in the sports world. I had to figure out how to get closer to that world. There was something about sports that just made sense to me - it also provided an electrifying rush that I would soon be addicted to. In my book Mindshift - Getting A Job In Sports, I walk you through an overview of sports from my perspective, having worked in this field for quite some time. I share with you how myself and others have been able to work around the sports that we so dearly enjoy. I hope that you will find this book informative and helpful as well as encouraging as you pursue your job in sports.

Product Description:
Have you ever wondered what it must be like to be part of the pit crew during a crucial Formula 1 tyre change? Have you dreamt of what it must be like to be allowed inside the F1 paddock or inside one of the ultra-high technology factories that produces Formula 1 cars? If you have then you are not alone. Formula 1 is full of glamorous, high octane thrills and anyone who has a passion for speed will understandably want to get close to the action. The danger, noise, speed and competition are an adrenaline buzz which makes a Grand Prix Sunday afternoon compulsive viewing for Formula 1 fans. Imagining yourself on the grid and taking part in the action is all part of the lure that makes the sport so attractive. These fantasies may excite but sadly they are experiences that few fans will ever get to fulfil. This privilege is usually the reserve of the sponsors, team owners and the mechanics and engineers who work for Formula 1 teams. The unique thing about Formula 1 however, is that you don't need to be rich and famous to take part. The television cameras might follow the movie stars and glittering celebrities but walking amongst them are some very ordinary people who just happen to have extraordinary jobs. I should know because I am one of them. Richard Ladbrooke is a degree qualified engineer who has worked in Formula 1 and other forms of motor racing both in the UK and America for nearly two decades. He has seen top level motorsport from both the winner's podium and from the back of the grid. "How To Get A Job In Grand Prix Racing" is his unique guide showing how anyone can make a career in this most glamorous of global sports. Through this book he shows you step by step how you can break down the barriers to Grand Prix racing and share in the excitement at the heart of the world's fastest sport. Richard opens the door to the inner workings of the industry, the people behind the scenes and shows you the skills, experience and know-how that you need to become a Grand Prix winner. Through the unique perspective of his own fictional F1 team, Ladbrooke F1, Richard describes in detail the different functions and job roles that make up a typical Formula 1 team and encourages you make informed choices about what part of the team you would most like to work in. He shares his own personal experience of growing up with no background in motorsport, the mistakes he made along the way and how he finally got the breakthrough to his first job in racing. This book will guide you through school, college and university, showing you how to spot crucial opportunities that others miss. Richard emphasises the importance of getting involved outside of the classroom and shares with you the most recognised extracurricular schemes and initiatives that will help you get on the racing ladder. Anyone can make it in Formula 1 and this book will motivate you, guide you and push you to achieve your potential. Understanding Formula 1 from the inside is crucial and the truth behind this often secretive and technological world is revealed here for you to learn, understand and be a part of. With a host of links to other online resources including Richard's own popular blog about working in Formula 1, this is the most comprehensive guide of its type. Welcome to the start line for your very own career in motorsport.
