Educational and interesting!
“It’s also important to enjoy the journey. Be humble, treat people as you would like to be treated, find opportunities to add value to others, and watch how the blessings come back to you. Giving is always more rewarding then receiving.”
“If you complain about your adversity, you lose sight of the blessing.”
“To develop a stellar business mindset, you must be a lifelong learner.”
BLURB: We hear so many stories of athletes who have been taken advantage of or who simply didn’t have a purpose after their careers came to an end. This doesn’t have to happen. Learn how money and taxes work. Learn how to keep more of your hard-earned money and put it to work for you so that you never have to worry about money again. Learn what to look for in a financial and business team. Turn your career into your money-making machine, and become the CEO of your enterprise and legacy. Find your purpose beyond the ball and prepare for a life afterward that is rewarding and makes a difference. In addition, parents will learn how to select an agent and what specific questions to ask, taking the confusion out of the process.
My thoughts: Aside from my financial training I have done as a banker, this was my first financial guide book I’ve ever read, and because it had to do with professional athletes and everyone involving them, it was a pretty interesting, educational read. I love the NFL so it was extremely interesting to learn about and put into perspective the reality of the situation of their financials… we all think that NFL players have it made with million dollar contracts, but so much of that is not theirs to keep, and their career only lasts so long, so it’s important that they look to the future, after the stardom is over, I think the authors really brought this out and shared very fantastic first hand knowledge and experiences to help everyone in the professional sports enterprise as well as just us normal physically uncoordinated people!!
