Multi-media platform with resources focused on helping professional athletes take control and enhance their financial futures

MGO LLP, one of the fastest growing CPA & Advisory Services firms in the nation, has premiered ‘The Future Game,’ a multi-media initiative focused on helping athletes at all stages of their careers avoid common money issues, take control of their finances, and build a strong foundation for the future.
The Future Game is focused on three steps every athlete should undertake to gain mastery over their financial future:

  •     Create a vision of success that reflects your personal values;
  •     Learn to think like a CEO and steer the direction of your personal brand, and;
  •     Build a team of advisors that will help you achieve your goals.

The Future Game provides a blend of content focused on helping athletes realize these goals, including: resources that provide an introduction to complex financial topics, educational videos from leaders in business and wealth management on issues like budgeting, “survivor’s remorse,” and planning for the future; and an exclusive interview series where professional athletes share the triumphs (and missteps) that shaped their journey to financial independence.

In the first interview series, NBA star Draymond Green discusses the lessons he’s learned – from signing his first contract out of college, to recently buying his first home – and how his understanding of the value of a dollar, the impact of taxes, and investing and wealth management have evolved over the years.

“A lot of ink gets spilled when athletes publically experience financial distress, but there are few attempts to understand the cultural complexities athletes navigate or provide any solutions to these obstacles,” says Kevin O’Connell, CEO and Managing Partner of MGO. “With ‘The Future Game,’ we are sparking a positive conversation to increase awareness and understanding, and also deliver practical guidance to help athletes build a strong financial foundation. The ultimate goal is to help athletes secure a comfortable lifestyle that empowers them to do the things that are truly important: supporting loved ones, giving back to their communities, and making a real impact for social causes.”

The Future Game is an on-going program with new content coming out weekly. You can access the current content, and sign up for updates at:
