We’re continuing our Smart Girl Summer Series this week with another fantastic guest that will inspire you (and maybe even help you out at the next sports trivia night!). Now, as a reminder, Smart Girl Summer is an eight-week series featuring some of my most brilliant friends sharing behind-the-scenes stories that you won’t hear anywhere else.
And today, we have the brilliant and business-savvy Kelli Masters on the show today! Kelli is an attorney, a certified sports agent, and the founder of KMM Sports, a full-service sports management company based in Oklahoma City. AND, fun fact: she was one of the first women to represent a Top 5 pick in the NFL draft!
She has represented more professional athletes than any other woman in the sports business history and was named one of the 25 most influential women in sports worldwide by Bleacher Report. Needless to say, Kelli knows a thing or two about business, sports, and remaining true to yourself against all odds.
We sit down to chat about Kelli’s experience working in a male-dominated field, what her faith in God means to her, and some of the lessons she has learned along the way. Plus, she shares some good advice for the next generation of trailblazing women.

It’s funny how those of us who try to map out what we think our life is going to look like and we fly and make all these plans. But truly, when you trust God with that and put it in his hands, it doesn’t look linear at all.
Being fierce doesn’t come from me being egotistical or cocky or overly confident. It comes from knowing God has called me to do this. He has given me the skills to do this. And he’s given me the passion and the ability to fight for my clients, to fight for the people that I’ve been given to fight for and there’s nothing more powerful.
Isn’t it so easy to beat yourself up for where you’re not?
What we’ve created is so different and so special. And it’s 100% because I just said, “God, I want to do it your way and I don’t want to do it my way.” I don’t want to just look successful. I want to make an impact and create successful opportunities and lives for the players that I get the chance to work with.
It’s interesting how you can spend so much time working on the details of something when God’s like- no trust me over here. Just keep being good to people. Keep listening to me. Keep being kind to people. And I’ll come through for you.
