Starting Strong: Financial Fitness Tips for Athletes

Financial Goal Setting in Sports and Beyond

One could argue that money is not everything; it cannot be denied that its significance lies in enabling a comfortable life. To live a comfortable life means that you reach financial freedom through financial goal setting. Athletes must think long-term when setting their financial goals, as a sports career may be successful but for most athletes it may only last for a few years. From that point onwards they have to live off the savings set aside while being active in sports.  These savings are most definitely the results of the financial goals they had set during their athletic years and the earlier they had started, the better off they are.
