The Setup:

Today we are continuing our conversation with NFL offensive guard Brian Winters on entrepreneurship and preparing financially for the future. We’ll explore Brian’s plans for when he retires from the NFL and his goal of building a real estate business.

The Combination and Key Points: 

On today’s episode of Unlocking Your Financial Future, we continue our conversation with NFL offensive guard Brian Winters. During the first part of this series, Brian opened up about his experience in the NFL and the saving habits he’s practiced throughout his career. Today, we are going to take a look at life after football and why investing now will prepare Brian for the future.

Similar to how many of us are saving for retirement, Brian is also saving for his financial future. He’s always been a numbers guy and he wants to use that passion in real estate after his NFL career is over. It’s one of those investments that almost anyone can grow and become successful at.

Investing in something big like real estate is about starting small and building your way up, especially if you are learning. This kind of business allows you to be as hands-on as you want. Some people invest hoping to have passive income and others look at it as another job.

Starting a business whether it’s in real estate or something else takes risk. For Brian, he’s always wanted to be an entrepreneur. When he’s done with the NFL, he wants to stay busy and continue to work hard. Starting small, Brian hopes to eventually diversify and grow his future business. Join us as we explore the world of real estate entrepreneurship with Brian.
