The average player in the NBA plays for about 5 years before they are cut from the roster or have to leave a team due to injury or for some other reason. Once a player’s career has come to an end they will need to get involved within another line of work. Unfortunately, this is not any easy transition to make for most players.
Keep in mind that the average NBA player is expected to make at least $27 million dollars before they retire. If a team member is a high performance player on the court they will certainly make a lot more cash. Athletes who played in the NBA for just two years could actually retire from the game because they make enough money to do so. The average salary for a player is about $5 million dollars. Players that rarely (if ever) get to play on the court can earn a huge salary just by sitting the bench. Even if a player was signed to a team for 2 years before being cut, they could make at least $10 million dollars which they could live off of the rest of their lives.
The problem with making money is that most people live up to their means. In other words, a lot of NBA players go broke after receiving all of this money because they do not properly plan and budget it out over a period of years. A player who is living a $2 million dollar a year lifestyle is not going to have money for very long if they only play in the NBA for 2 seasons. This is why players must have a plan in place to continue financing the lifestyle that they come to enjoy.
Many former NBA players are now franchise owners. They own restaurants and various businesses all over the United States. Restaurants are a great investment and earning strategy for many former NBA players. Many former players now own commercial fast food chains all over the U.S. They also own some commercial clothing and retail establishments as well. A few of the top earning athletes in the NBA have pooled their resources together toward the purchase of a NBA franchise. Michael Jordan is the only former NBA player that was able to purchase an NBA team on his own. This was no easy feat. Jordan owns the Charlotte Hornets.
Bruce Levenson was a co-owner of the Atlanta Hawks from 2004 to 2014. During his tenor as a partial owner; he had helped some former players to transition to a life outside of the basketball court. Like most owners, Levenson typically did not get involved in the financial matters of his players but he had provided them with information that would help to benefit them in their post NBA life.
All NBA players know they have a small window of time to play in the league. Only a select few players will be able to stay around for 10 or more years.

In today’s business world it is unusual to find someone who has climbed the corporate ladder without crushing people along the way. Joseph Bismark found a better way from the very beginnings of marketing giant QNet. Instead of stepping on people, He raised them up with him along the way.
Where did this unique view of management come from? Bismark was educated in a vedic monastery in the Philippines. From ages nine to seventeen he studied to be a monk. It was here that he learned the importance of teamwork, empathy, encouragement, and service. He was working as a martial arts instructor when he met Vijay Eswaran. They bonded over a shared spirituality and desire for healthy living. They built that bond into a small marketing company where they applied the idea of servant leadership. That little company grew into QNet.
Today, Bismark holds many titles within The QI Group, of which QNet is a subsidiary. He co-founded RHYTHM, which is the group’s philanthropic entity and he founded The V, which is the group’s global training, networking marketing, and development company. He is a very successful, highly regarded businessman who encourages his own employees to attain their full potential and emboldens other managers to integrate his philosophy of service into their own businesses. He thrives on serving others believing that to be more important that individual wealth. Bismark has said “We are not the physical body, we’re spirit – souls. True happiness lies in the understanding of our real identity as spirit-souls and not the physical body.” As part of his philosophy, Bismark maintains an open door policy and encourages teamwork. According to him, communication is the key to building a successful business.
Joseph Bismark owes all that he is today to what he was taught in the monastery. By applying those spiritual tenets to his whole life he has garnered success in business and in life. He has said that “everyone has the potential to do extrordinary things.” By building up and respecting his employees he has proven that to be true.
Joseph Bismark Lives Humbly and Operates QNet Through His Spiritual Nature
The business world can be a very demanding and stressful at times. It is a place that many find overwhelming on a day to day basis. When trying to ascend the corporate ladder, few make the climb successfully. So many people want to bring spirituality into their business, but very few accomplish this monumental task. However, Joseph Bismark has learned how to unit business and spirituality and that they can work harmoniously for the greater good. He is not only on the board of directors at Qnet, but he is also the co-founder. His innovative ways have allowed him to take the company to exciting levels and in the meantime his spiritual approach to running a business has moved the masses.
What makes Bismark so unique? Well, at the age of nine, he left his family and home and became a monk in the Philippines Mountains of ashram. He remained there until he was seventeen years old. He received a firm foundation that allowed him to change from the inside out. He used what he learned on those mountains to practice business principles that were effective. Using a higher power, he has lived a great life and runs an efficient company. He believes in teamwork; there’s no such thing as one person who is more important than the other. He is also vision oriented. Everyone has the power to exceed, and they just need someone behind them pushing with a helping hand.
Unlike most corporate executives, he believes in a simple way of life. The lavish lifestyle is nothing that has ever appealed to him or his wife. They are ordinary people with extraordinary abilities to touch others. He is grounded and humble. He has core values that will not be overstepped no matter what is thrown his way. He believes that although he has obtained success, it is just a temporary thing. It is all about the relationships you form on the way up the corporate ladder that will last for the long term. He believes in the brotherhood, and his employees are family to him. Bismark says that his life changed with his spiritual awakening, and he has inner peace because of his selfless nature and his willingness to serve others. While Bismark lives in Singapore, he influences people from around the globe through his blog.
With so many leaders pushing others out of the way to attend success, it’s refreshing to find someone like this who is all about doing good to others. Those who need a leader who is encouraging, passionate about humanitarian efforts and an all-around good guy should follow Bismark.
