Do you know who the 2nd highest Net Worth Basketball player is? Michael Jordan is obviously number 1 in net worth and many other things. That will be saved for a later post. I was blown away to find out that today the 2nd highest is Ulysses Lee "Junior" Bridgeman.
During the off-season, he would go and work at Wendy's during the 70's. He knew that being a basketball player, it was going to end. He had earned just over $4M over a 12 year basketball career and saw that this was not enough to carry him the rest of his life. He kept investing in himself and found a passion in the restaurant industry. He hustled hard to figure the in's and out's of the restaurant industry and started purchasing Wendy's franchises. After Wendy's franchises, he purchased Chili's franchises. Now he owns a Coca-cola bottling plant. Today, his net worth is $600 million.
This video was really motivating to me because he talks about some of the best advice he had received. It was to take more risks because you never know what you are capable of if you don't take risks.
