Amobi Okugo

Professional athletes across many different sports seek financial advice from someone who is still playing a professional sport himself: Amobi Okugo

Episode Description

Professional athletes across many different sports seek financial advice from someone who is still playing a professional sport himself: Amobi Okugo. Amobi has been a veteran in the MLS and USL, and is currently playing for Austin Bold FC. A leader on the pitch who is a defender by trade, Amobi might have a bigger influence off the field. Amobi started A Frugal Athlete- helping athletes make, manage, and multiply their money. His company has grown so much over the years that Amobi has been recently named to the Forbes 30 under 30 list, the most prestigious branding of young entrepreneurs making a difference. And it makes sense: If you are a professional athlete looking to leverage your financial freedom, what better person to learn from than someone who has been in your shoes!
