Team Frugal: Joseph Fauria

Being frugal is about more than being stingy with your money. It means being prudent, smart and economical with your finances and career decisions. Every Tuesday, we share profiles of athletes that exemplify what it means to be A Frugal Athlete.

Countless professional athletes suffer from depression and identity issues when they retire from their playing careers. Joseph Fauria was no different from these other athletes. Known for his big personality and even bigger NFL celebrations, he struggled to figure it out once he was done playing.

Fortunately for Fauria, he ultimately found his way and is now on a quest to help other athletes with their transition out of sports. His Figure It Out podcast is one platform he’s jumped into during his new phase of life. Fauria also holds fitness bootcamps and has recently signed with a talent agency to increase his exposure into different entertainment and business ventures.

Joseph Fauria is a great example for other athletes to take note of. You may not have everything situated when you retire or done playing but that doesn’t mean life stops. The key is to continue to push for continued growth and the qualities that made you so successful on the field will ultimately help you off the field. For Fauria, his easy outgoing, humorous personality has led him into exactly what he is doing and exactly where he needs to be.
