Hi Lestar,

Congrats on signing with the Vikings. You are getting some good advice here. What is your passion? Look around you. What businesses are the other athletes successful in? My husband and I are business brokers near Knoxville Tennessee and I know of a pro athlete who along with his family owns a Marina. We live and work on the lake because we have a passion for fishing and selling businesses and like you....being our own boss.

The best advice I can give you is to do your homework. You are dong all the right things by researching and asking questions.

Good luck!
