The Sports Industry has at least a $50 Billion dollar annual impact on the United States’ economy. That’s somewhere in the neighborhood of $1 Trillion dollars over a 20 year period. Professional athletes’ salaries and their ancillary support resources represent a significant percentage of this “river of wealth”. The problem is that the flow of this wealth has a one way direction as ‘professional athletes’ income jets away from wealth preservation toward frivilous spending. And even though college athletes are the well spring of billions of dollars annually, they don’t receive a fraction of the income they help to generate, other than a tuition scholarship. We want to change this wealth equation and help athletes maximize their wealth development opportunities and enhance their money management skills.

Through ProSquared, Mr. Wynn has created a collaborative infrastructure – comprised of a network of intentionally selected experts and organizations with reputations of integrity — to educate more athletes on how to:
