Have you ever watched the show Ballers starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson? I know, that doesn’t sound like the type of show I’d watch (I know nothing about sports!), but my husband was watching it one night and told me it was about an ex-NFL player who becomes a financial planner. Now that’s my kind of show!
Well, cut to present day and I have basically a real-life “baller” on the podcast! Jedidiah Collins played for the NFL for seven seasons while studyinh to become a CFP on the off-season. Post-NFL career, he now owns his own financial services company, does public speaking and is on a mission to educate others on how to make their money work better for them.
We get into what it was like playing for the NFL, earning those big game cheques, and how he was able to avoid being another sports star who ended their career with no savings in the bank. We also dive into his new workbook Your Money Vehicle that he developed to be an actionable guidebook for others to build their own financial plans and set themselves on the right path.
