Imagine if you had a job that guaranteed you a salary of $1 million. What kind of lifestyle would you plan? How would you spend your money? Wealthy Radio host Deborah Owens talks with someone who faced this exact scenario. When former NFL wide receiver Ryan Broyles started with the Detroit Lions, he signed a $3.6 million dollar contract that guaranteed him $1.4 million. Instead of spending all his money at once, he took the bold step to live on just a fraction of his salary in order to save and invest for the future.
