"Disrespect your money and you'll end up broke."

Most pro football players are terrible money managers. Sure, we earn plenty, but, generally speaking, we don’t know how to keep it. I almost went broke and became a negative statistic. Life after football is not easy. I had to re-invent myself as I navigated the playbook of life beyond sports.

New money is like a newborn baby: it doesn’t come with an instruction manual. You better learn how to deal with it, fast! Although they have a fiduciary duty, financial advisors should not care more about your money than you care about your money. And yes, your “fun friends” and family will view you as an endless ATM. Trust me, they will plead poverty and expect you to bail them out of their self-imposed financial emergencies. This book helps you understand the difference between “I truly need it” and “I’d really like it” when dealing with those closest to you. New Money will help you understand when you’re being an enabler or administering appropriate tough love.

New Money: Staying Rich dispenses valuable advice, told through first-hand experiences, to aspiring professional athletes, entrepreneurs and anyone fortunate enough to be the beneficiary of rapid wealth. Learn from my errors; don’t make the same mistakes I did. Have fun reading the entertaining and enlightening stories in the book, and learn how to live a sustainable life as a New Money Millionaire!
