We are excited to announce a collaboration with A Frugal Athlete, which provides an insider’s look into the personal financial playbook of professional athletes. 

A Frugal Athlete was created by professional soccer player Amobi Okugo to highlight the prudent financial decision-making of athletes across sports, as well as provide a resource to other athletes and those interested in living a life well-spent. We think it is crucial for athletes to make educated decisions on how to handle their financials, and A Frugal Athlete provides great information and examples how athletes can increase their income streams. 

As part of our collaboration, we highlight athletes who have successfully transitioned from their athletic career to a business business career. We frame this collaboration within our #ThrowbackThursday (#TBT) series, to show athletes can use their soft skills, such as grit, dedication, and teamwork to build successful businesses.
