How long do you stick with a sponsor?
Should you sponsor hop to the best deal possible?
Or should you stick with the company you believe in?
It’s a sticky situation when it comes to changing brands. It can be a challenge and a blessing depending on how you look at it. But at the end of the day, you need to ask yourself “Does this company fit with what I am wanting to accomplish inside my career”. That is a tough answer to swallow but for the right reasons, you might find that changing companies isn’t as bad as you originally thought. However, one of the worst things you can do is sponsor hop… Just keep that in mind.
Our guest Riley Suhan is a fantastic role model when it comes to working with companies you believe in. Even if you don’t land the very best deal with that company, you can still show them that you strongly believe in their products that will pay dividends in the long run. Riley comes from a background of down hill mountain bike racing and when he transitioned to more full time snowmobile riding, he was stoked to network with some idols of his. His hard work for so many years has paid off multiple times over, and he is stoked to share his story with us on this podcast.
