Honestly, I was skeptical. I’m not going to lie, because it was something new. As a former player, we get a lot of programs thrown at us – "We can help you with this" or "Invest in that". So, I was in a situation where I was kind of skeptical. It wasn’t until Hannibal Navies reached out to me, and was like, "Hey man, this is a legit thing. We’re actually doing an event, up at EXOS.” This was back when they were doing the EXOS tour showing all of us what it was. So, I went up there to meet with them, and I actually said, "Wait, these are real people that actually represent the Players Association and the Former Players."
From there, it just snowballed and Hannibal kept in touch with me to keep me posted on events. I know one early opportunity was going out to Babson College, to be a part of Babson 101: It's My Business. I took the time to learn about how to run a business. Going through Babson, I was like, "Wow! I wish I had known this before I left the league, I could have saved a lot of money!"
