From Richard Sherman via Time …
Over the last several years, NFL star Richard Sherman has been rather forward-thinking about his finances. He became an early adopter of cryptocurrency when he started accepting Bitcoin on his website for merchandise, and he recently told MONEY that he saves 60% of every paycheck he gets.
“As a kid, it was so ridiculous how I saw money, how my parents saw money, how my family saw money,” he says. “My parents were $40,000 in debt their entire lives. They went bankrupt twice. It was crazy. They’d get their taxes back and spend it all on gifts, things they wanted, trying to pay the cars off. Getting into more debt. But Rich Dad Poor Dad changed my perspective.”
“It was the book that opened my eyes to the way money really works,” he told MONEY. “It blew me away.”
