Ep.41 | Jeff Reboulet | A 12-Year MLB Veteran On the Keys to Sustainable Success in Sports, Business, & Life

When do you think it’s right to be aggressive with your money?

Tough question to answer.

Especially when you hear people say, “No risk. No reward.”

But how does that phrase relate to money and investing?

J.R. gets into that and more today with 12-Year MLB Pro turned financial advisor and entrepreneur, Jeff Reboulet.

J.R. and Jeff talk about: 

  • The mentality you must have when you’re not seeing the fruits of your labor
  • The keys to keeping your family and friends an asset to your career instead of a liability
  • The approach to money you should be taking so it’s NOT a distraction in your career

…and so much more.

If you like stories, Jeff has plenty. He’s seen it all and then some after spending 18 years in professional baseball. 

Another man full of wisdom and passion comin’ straight to ya!
