Are you ready to launch your sports business
Do you wish you could experience all of ESBA live in just a matter of days?
You can! Join us for the SKILLED. Conference, where we’ll spend 2 days together in workshop intensives that will address the core areas of running a profitable business. You will DEEP DIVE much more into the strategic components of the business – far beyond the ESBA curriculum. You’ll hear from industry experts & ESBA staff as we cover skills, training, marketing, social media, branding, communication, customer retention & more!
Train to your Strengths & Get support for your weaknesses
The single player, even the playmakers, can’t win the game all by themselves (unless your name is Jordan or Messi). The collaborative effort achieves the result. During this 2-day event, you will learn to share your strengths & strengthen your weaknesses. No theories, only proven practices that we will personally walk you through LIVE & IN PERSON, in real-time training & implementation.
CONNECTION: Connect with brands, businesses, bloggers & creatives who want to help you scale your business. Each of these can connect you with the right product or service to best support your growth as an entrepreneur.
COLLABORATION: Meet fellow sports business entrepreneurs. Learn how they’ve broken the mold for their own business & are scaling up. Many great opportunities in business have come from a simple conversation between like-minded individuals.
COUNSEL: Ask the industry experts your questions! They will be there to provide expert advice on taking your business to the next level during one of our many sessions. You can also visit their booths for more information on how they can work with you in a 1:1 hotseat session.
COACHING: Wish you could have time to sit down with someone who’s been where you are & get their customized feedback on your specific business approach? Troubleshoot your sales page? Tweak your funnel copy? We’ve got that – & you’ll get it to in your customized small group assignments.
ESBA’s SKILLED. Conference is the new (but more fun) version of 2-a-days
Remember how bad 2-a-days were? Well consider the conference to be about that much work – but a LOT more fun. You’ll learn from others who are at different stages of the game than you as you discuss where you want to take your business.

Where did the name SKILLED. even come from? Glad you asked! SKILLED. (read: SKILLED PERIOD). When you’re an elite athlete, your skills do the talking for you. You’re skilled at the game, at your actual skills, & now we’re equipping you with the skills you need to be completely skilled in business. The period at the end is because there’s really nothing left to say once you show ’em your skills. Make sense? It did to us too.
Can I bring my business partner / spouse / best friend / dog? This is a yes & no answer. Yes to SKILLED. Who you bring to travel with is up to you but no conference access will be provided. Service dogs are always welcome to the others are a no-no; they chase too many squirrels.
Do I have to be enrolled in ESBA to attend? Yes.
Can I upgrade my ticket to include the workshop or VIP? If space is available, then yes. Sometimes plans change & we have an opening so contact us! We make changes by order of request until no space is available.
I am a soccer trainer; will Jeremie provide a hands-on demonstration of the soccer skills? Yes. If you’ve purchased his Complete Ball Control method training, there is a special session where he will walk you through the skills in person as well as answer soccer development-specific questions for you!
What about other sports skills demonstrations? Will they be demo’d as well? As an elite athlete, you should know your skills. However, one of the sessions is ONLY about the skills & what types of skills you should include for your sport as well as what types of skills provide the fastest & best development.
What will I learn at the SKILLED. conference? You’ll learn how to be cool. JK. Kinda. On a serious note, we realize not everyone will be in the same place with their business when they attend SKILLED. That is why we will be focused on expanding your business brain with higher applications of what you’ve learned in ESBA, including know the value of your own brand, affiliate work, high-level funnels, conversion tactics, product creation & more!
WHERE’S THE HOTEL? Glad you asked! Due to our clientele, we don’t publicize the location. If you haven’t received your packet, just message us! Finding a roomie is also a total possibility! AND you can still book your flights. The 2 airports in the area are DFW (Dallas-Ft. Worth International) & DAL (Love Field).
