"He's desperately seeking a manager or some sort of representation to help him translate his time on The Bachelor into a full-blown brand," a source told Life & Style in its latest issue.
Galavis is reportedly more focused on public networking than he is on building a stronger connection with the woman who received his final rose in October.
"Juan Pablo wants to follow in show alum Sean Lowe's footsteps and make a living doing appearances and being the face of big-name brands. But no one likes him, so he's having a hard time," the source said.
The Bachelor star, a 32-year-old former pro soccer player and Venezuela native, reportedly predicts in five years he'll be "one of the most respected agents in sports and music," according to an insider.
"Most of the money Juan Pablo got from soccer is probably long gone. Money must be tight, because he lives in a three-bedroom apartment with his mom and dad."
The insider told Life & Style that Galavis didn't do the show for love or to find a wife.
"The reason he was so interested in being the Bachelor was to make money and become more famous," the insider noted. "He's always actively looking for money and work."
ABC's reality dancing competition was reportedly on Galavis' to-do list as well, however, producers "no longer wanted" him as a member of the cast after multiple controversies involving the Miami resident unfolded this season.
"He really wanted to be on Dancing with the Stars," the insider said.
"Nobody seems to know how Juan Pablo makes a living. During the week, he spends his time going to the gym or the beach. His life in Miami seems rather mundane, actually. Most people think he works for the Miami Marlins, though."
In fact, Galavis basically chases down Venezuelan baseball players for autographs and reportedly has little to do work-wise once Major League Baseball season ends.
"Juan Pablo's job now is as a sports consultant who does work for the Venezuelan Baseball Hall of Fame," the insider told Life & Style. "During baseball season, he has to travel to different ballparks and try to get Venezuelan players to sign memorabilia he can bring back to the Hall of Fame."
