We're all in this together.

Mental Health support for the sports business industry.

As sports industry professionals we all face challenges that can affect our mental health.

This is THE destination for those of us in sports business, at all levels, to talk about those challenges and get the support we need to persevere. Whether it's in your career or your personal life, everyone is going through something. By joining this community we will provide you with resources, peer-to-peer support, and even recommendations to ensure you're staying healthy both in and out of the front office.

What's our why?

This is a collaboration between me (Bob Hamer the President & Founder of Sports Business Solutions) and my great friend and mentor (Eric Kussin, the Founder of the Non Profit We're All a Little "Crazy" and creator of the #SameHere Global Mental Health Movement).

Together we have more than 30 years of experience in sports business. We worked together at the Phoenix Suns and we both have faced mental health challenges. Our vision is to share stories, strategies, and resources in an effort to help others in sports overcome the challenges we all face at some point or another.
