I recently had the opportunity to hang out with Derrick Morgan, an NFL linebacker for the Tennessee Titans. It was part of an Entrepreneur story focusing on a new sports agency started by marketing guru, Gary Vaynerchuk. Morgan recently signed with the boutique agency because he felt a kinship with its founders' entrepreneurial spirit.
Unlike many pro athletes who end up bankrupt after their short careers, Morgan is planning a future for himself after football. “You always hear about statistics of players going broke,” he says. “I didn’t want to be a statistic. I realized I needed to invest in myself outside of the game.” Check out the story here and let me know what you think.
