Ep.17 - How John DiGiorgio successfully saved and invested his NFL income to ride his own money wave.
How many times do we read the headlines of people who experience sudden wealth, whether professional athletes or lottery winners, who later end up broke or bankrupt? We proclaim, "If I had that kind of money, I would never let that happen." John DiGiorgio went from a single-family home with 4 siblings to a career in the NFL, where he made over $1,000,000 in just three years. During his career, he saw others make foolish decisions with their money and vowed not to follow in their footsteps. Instead, he invested in real estate and started teaching himself about finance. Now, he owns 15 rental properties, recently got his real estate license, lives in a beautiful house that is paid in full, and is fully riding his own money wave, where his passive income is covering all of his expenses and more. John talks about his humble beginnings and how he fully utilizes the offerings of every employeer, whether that is internships, personal development programs, networking associations, or 401(k) matches.
