 Top 50 Richest Athletes in the World

I was running some errands with my brother one day in Las Vegas, and he was telling me about when he met Floyd Mayweather. He told me that he was talking to some people who knew him, and said that it was not uncommon for Floyd to carry a million dollars with him. I thought that it was ridiculous! That got me curious. I wanted to see how Floyd ranked with other top athletes. Floyd Mayweather is ranked #21 out of 50 athletes.

And there you have it! For a complete list go here. If you notice, most of the athletes are entrepreneurs. These athletes were smart enough to know that they could not be on top forever, so they diversified their income and started businesses on the side. This concept is not just for the top athletes around the world, anyone could use this strategy! Be smart, do something on the side, because there is nothing wrong with having multiple sources of income. But whatever you do, I highly recommend that you do what you love, and love what you do with passion.

See you on the beaches of the world!
