(Miami, FLORIDA / Jan. 25. 2022) – Signing the first contract as a pro athlete can be misunderstood by the athlete and their inner circle. As they think they signed a $30m contract, they live & spend as if they’re bringing home $30m. When unexpected issues arise like taxes or a shortened career, long-term financial problems come with it. This explains why 78% of NFL & 70% of NBA athletes go bankrupt within 5 years of leaving the NFL. While wealth planning is a marathon, not a sprint, athletes, in particular, must prepare to make their earnings last for the long haul. We asked certified financial planner Jamel Gordon to show the top ways that NCAA athletes can financially prepare for life in & outside of pro sports.

The benefits of adhering to the right financial plan are life-changing. not only does it help the athlete but it also helps loved ones that depend on them. It is essential that athletes make the effort to create budgets that allow for unexpected changes in lifestyle, tax liabilities, and emergency and retirement savings. As tempting as it is to spend your first paycheck on a luxurious lifestyle, compounding interest makes it far more profitable to pay yourself first and your investment accounts before you satisfy a desire for status.

The best ways for young players to financially set themselves for life include creating a budget, setting up appropriate financial accounts, as well as creating & conserving financial assets. According to Jamel “Life is filled with changes, from marriage and childbirth to divorce and death, all of which will have a profound effect on your lifestyle and your finances. As you pass through these transitions, it is critical that you keep your eye on the end goal and protect yourself and your financial future.”
