The Pro Players & Entertainers Network ™ (PPEN) – A Space for Retired NFL Players to Unite Behind One Voice!

The Pro Players & Entertainers Network ™ (PPEN) is an interactive social and business network of retired professional athletes and players which has been developed as an ambitious player advocacy program. Created by Dr. Joseph Profit former NFL #1 draft pick for the Atlanta Falcons in 1971. The PPEN social networking platform and player advocacy program provides retired athletes and players’ assistance with healthcare and special medical issues,as well as, career transition needs, after sports career counseling, marketing and lobbying. The PPEN advocacy program will also help protect and preserve the intellectual property rights of retired players and help them meet their future financial goals and needs.

It is a documented fact that only 2% of retired players and athletes move on to successful careers when they are done playing sports. Dr. Profit, a member of this thin minority, became a successful entrepreneur creating a wealth of income for himself and those around him. A key to his success was his networking skills and an uncanny ability to put the right people together in a team environment to get huge results. Recognizing an immediate need to foster an environment where individuals could network and success stories could be shared, advice given and benefits would be offered, the Pro Players & Entertainers Network ™ (PPEN) was formed.

Now like-minded individuals can mix and mingle with up and coming pro athletes, high profile executives, and celebrities to create a pool of resources that can propel any business or individual to immediate success.
