To sell, you are going to need self-confidence, drive, and the know-how.

Here are some books I recommend you purchase and begin reading:
1) Spin Selling by Neil Rackham

2) Never Eat Alone: And Other Secrets to Success, One Relationship at a Time by Keith Ferrazzi, Tahl Raz

3) The Ultimate Sales Machine: Turbocharge Your Business with Relentless Focus on 12 Key Strategies by Chet Holmes, Jay Conrad Levinson, Michael Gerber

4) Fierce Conversations: Achieving Success at Work and in Life One Conversation at a Time by Susan Scott

5) Zero Resistance Selling by Maxwell Maltz



To paraphrase a favorite Jim Rohn quote of mine -- formal education will earn you a salary; self-education will earn you a fortune.

If you haven't already, it would be a good idea to take an advertising class.
The sales jobs for professional sports teams usually fall into 2 categories 1) tickets(corporate season / suite rentals) 2) sponsorships (selling companies space to advertise--in the ball park, during games, in programs etc.
Also important to be proficient in social media and marketing. Sports organizations live by social media.

I recommend setting your sites on a bachelors degree. It will enable you to advance either in the Rangers organization or any company that you end up with.

If you cannot get into the Rangers immediately, try a related business--Mavericks, Cowboys, Stars. Don't discount the Frisco Roughriders. It's all about getting a foot in the door, any door, for experience and keep your sites set on your ultimate goal.

Best of luck.
