Leigh Steinberg has represented many of the most successful athletes and coaches in sports including the number one overall pick in the NFL draft for an unprecedented eight times. In 1996, the famous catchphrase “Show me the money” from the Cameron Crow film Jerry Maguire took on a painful meaning when Steinberg was forced to file for bankruptcy in 2012. His downward spiral was fueled by alcoholism, bad investments, and unethical actions by one of his partners.
“Well, when you’ve had Tom Cruise play you, anything else is a comedown.”
Steinberg shares his comeback and his most recent book, The Agent: My 40-Year Career of Making Deals and Changing the Game. He details his decades of dominance in the sports industry and sheds light on overcoming his personal struggles.
