Interview With Agent Live 360 Founder Trevor Swenson
Trevor Swenson has been working in the entertainment industry for well over a decade. As the owner of a successful concert booking agency for musicians, Dynamic Talent International, he’s back with a highly adaptive new software geared towards helping Sports Agents leave Excel and Old Forms far-behind!
When did you realize you wanted to start Agent 360 Live?
Early 2019 when Dynamic Talent was looking to open a sports division.
How did you learn the ins and outs of business?
We had a sports division that represented a hand full of professional athletes and we did a great deal of asking around at what agents and agencies would want in a software.
What are your specific areas of expertise?
Talent management, software development and business consulting.
Do you recommend College for an up and coming Entrepreneur?
I personally don’t. Trade school or getting the on the job experience goes a lot further than a college education.
What are some challenges you faced along the way?
Financial obstacles are always a challenge. Keeping support staff happy and making sure the companies take care of them. Keeping things new and fresh with the software company.
When did you know it was the right move to go “full time”?
The moment it because a real company is the moment you go full time. If you treat a business like a part time job thats all it ever will be.
Where do you hope to see yourself in the future?
Continuing to grow the businesses and make sure the customer and the staff members are always taken care of.
Any advice to others out there who might feel stuck or not know where to start?
Step back take an inventory if where you and what you have done to that point. Then tell yourself you can always push for more.
Helping agents understand their business in its entirety was the goal of creating AL360, Swenson shared that “90 percent of agents do not know how much they spent on a player.” An issue that is addressed with the program’s ability to label and assign expenses to a specific client.
