Taxes and the Professional Sportsperson

Taxes! Oh boy! Is it that time of the year? No, not yet! But why not get ready and know what the tax man expects from you the professional sportsperson. By a professional sportsperson, I mean a person who makes a living by playing a professional sport. For example, an athlete, footballer, basketballer or cricketer.

Post-Game Meal

What happens once you finish your trip? You immediately check on your fuel gauge and refuel. During sports events just like a trip your nutrient stores are depleted and your body needs to recover and replenish.

I enjoyed the Profile interview as I got to share a little about my personal life as well as my sports life and it was the first step of building my brand as a Sportsperson. The Nutrition interview was quite educational as I got to learn a lot about the best foods to eat at different times of the day during both on and off-season.

Thank you MSA.
