What Fantasy Football Can Teach You About Money

August is here! That means that for the next few weeks, after I have taken care of all of my domestic duties and professional responsibilities, I will have one thing, and one thing only, on which to focus my attention. I will not be cleaning up oil in the Gulf of Mexico. I won’t be volunteering my time for any purpose.

I do miss it, but now would rather watch them and relax. However, I agree with your point on researching the information on products you are interested in buying.

There are certainly lessons to be learn about finances and business within Fantasy Football. My one take-away is the best of plans of mice and men often go awry. That fantasy team that looks so awesome in September, well who knows what will be the case in January.

    Lesson: Minimize your downside risk and learn to adjust accordingly because life WILL happen…

    Thanks for the article. Been playing fantasy for about 10 years and investing for a little less than that. Probably put an equal amount of time into both and there are definitely similarities. Ability to negotiate. Using your instincts. Knowing which sources of information are good vs. mediocre so get an edge, etc. Just don’t forget to have fun! :-)

    You forgot to mention where you do your research? What sites are the most helpful? What research are you able to do for free? What do you pay for and where?
