Smashwords Interview

What inspired you to write this book?
As both a high school football coach and business consultant, I have been privy to get a 1st hand experience to what's going on inside the minds of athletes. I have a passion for helping athletes excel whether its on or off the field. Seeing the constant financial struggles of athletes made me want to help provide a new outlook on their future. I recognized that there was a need for them to receive some proper instruction and I believe the book provides me the ability to give that much need instruction on this pressing issue.
Why do you believe professional sports don’t make millionaires?
Being a true millionaire is more about the mindset than it is about the actual money that is being made. There are many well known businessmen and authors who will attest to this fact. Most millionaires have a repeatable system that they follow to experience financial success. The problem with professional athletes is that their system for making money ends once their playing days are over. If they don't have viable options that will recreate their athletic financial success, then they will find themselves over extended financially because they are no longer able to support the lifestyle they once lived.
