I was recently reading about a basketball athlete that went broke... Darius Miles. He's just a shade younger than me and his basketball career is over.

It broke my heart.

Unfortunately, he's not the only one. There's been dozens of cases of athletes running out of money despite earning tens of millions of dollars. 

I was asking myself, how do these incredibly talented athletes blow through so much money? What can we learn from them?


I started reading and reading and reading some more. I checked out some specific stories that I think would be helpful to you. I identified 5 specific lessons that we can take away from athletes that go broke.
