Letter B: The A to Zs of Turning Pro, Waiting for the Draft, Just Been Drafted
July 15, 2016
The letter ‘B’ starts more than Ball when you are talking sports.
Have you considered:
Bonus -- Are you getting one for signing or performance? How much do you actually get after taxes?
Budget -- You should have one -- starting now -- to help keep you and your family safe, now and for later.
Buddies -- You have them. More may ask to be part of your circle, but can you afford them?
Balance -- How are you managing your family and social life with your career?
Broke -- Upwards of 70% of all NFL players are in trouble 2 years after retiring; active players and athletes in other sports are certainly not immune.
Bankrupt -- Another word for Broke; not where you want to be; not where you have to be.
Bankruptcy -- This is what you file for when your troubles get to be too much.
Back -- Are your financial advisor and his team watching yours? Are they protecting it for you?
