Shaquille O’Neal Gives Valuable Money Advice To Young People

in NBA

Shaquille O’Neal has amassed a huge net worth of around $400 million dollars throughout his playing career and as an investor and businessman.

He has not been careful of his money early in his life and is well known to have blown $1 million dollar in one hour after he got his big payday.

As Shaq narrates – “I went through a lot of trials and tribulations. A lot of failures”

In this interview video, Shaq gives valuable advice to young people: “Alright children,” using a blank sheet of paper. “This is $100, What you want to do is, you want to rip the $100 in half.”

Take one half and “save it. Don’t ever touch it. Put it away. Don’t even look at it. Now you’ve got $50 left. Now, the smart people … the billionaires of the world, they’ll take half of that $50 and put all that away,” he says, while adding another quarter of the piece of paper to the “save pile.”

“This right here,” referring to the remaining quarter, is your fun money: “You want to buy houses, you want to buy cars, you want to buy planes, you want to travel? This right here is what you have fun with.”

O’Neal recommends only using 25% of your earnings and saving and investing 75 percent.

He finishes up with “A guy taught me that a long time ago, and it’s been working for me,”.

This is a wonderful advice and frankly it doesn’t matter how much you earn, what matters is how much you keep. While it may be harder for people earning less, the key takeaway here is to adjust your spending to a minimum to be able to save as much.

Watch the interview and advice of Shaq below:

Andrea Lee Accuses Judge in UFC 247 for Not Doing his Job

in UFC

Saturday’s UFC 247 event was a controversial one, with audience members, commentators and social media fans baffled by the way the judges scored many of the fights.

Andrea Lee lost to Lauren Murphy on UFC 247 via split decision, she had one judge scoring the bout 29-28 for her, while two scored it 29-28 and 30-27 for Murphy.

Andrea Lee after learning of Joe Rogan and Dominick Cruz comments how one of the judges didn’t pay attention as he was on his phone while the women were fighting.

As Joe says — “We’re looking at a judge that’s not even watching the fight…This is insane,”

Cruz says — “The judges just don’t even watch…They are looking down at the floor. Insane! It’s going to be tough for the fighters tonight to figure out how to win a decision.”

After several more minutes Rogan again mentioned “This is crazy. He’s still not watching the fight!”

Andrea Lee wants the judge to be fired for not doing his job — “If anyone has video or pictures of the judge who was on his phone during the fights, please send them to me. I just think that judge should be fired, he should never have the opportunity to sit cage side and judge fights ever again, especially when there are plenty other judges who were better qualified and more deserving.”

We all get it, while at work some people have emergency and have to be on the phone or a sudden emergency message throws them off. Unfortunately the job requires to pay attention while the fight is going on for the fairness for both fighters and viewers. Let us see how this ends up.
