SAB: When did you realize that you wanted to pursue a career as a sports agent? Cervando Tejeda: I initially didn’t want to be an agent. I didn’t have a clue what “being” an agent meant. I wanted to work in the finance industry. I accidentally received an internship opportunity and that is when I realized I want to pursue the agent path. What internships early on in your career prepared you well? What key lessons did you learn? Cervando Tejeda: My internship with ThirdSports And Entertainment is what prepared me – Nathaniel Sain was/is a computer! The experience really gave me the inside view of running an agency from the European side. Yes, my first two years with Nathaniel was a lesson in itself. The most important thing I learned: be direct with all your clients.
