Episode 5: No More Breaks

A Frugal Athlete Podcast is a weekly podcast hosted by founder, Amobi Okugo. This podcast is meant to provide an insiders look into the financial playbook of professional athletes, give insights on what it means to be a frugal athlete, and discuss topics regarding  all things sports business. The podcast will run every Wednesday and be available on AnchorApple Podcast, and Google Play.

After a little break we are back with episode 5 of A Frugal Athlete Podcast. We have a lot to catch up on. I talk about NFL free agency and franchise tags specifically Richard Sherman and Kirk Cousins. I also discuss my current situation as a Free Agent and Health Insurance. I also touch on how Kobe winning an oscar is great for athletes and what it means. Lastly we talk about Alex Rodriguez’s new show on CNBC Back in the Game.

Show Notes: 

It's a story we hear all too often. A pro athlete heads into retirement and suddenly ends up in financial free-fall. "Back in the Game" pairs major league baseball legend and successful businessman Alex Rodriguez with Joe Smith, a former NBA #1 pick who's lost most of the $60 million he made in his long career.
