Letter B: The A to Zs of Turning Pro, Waiting for the Draft, Just Been Drafted

Jul 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?
