Money, dinero, paper, it has several monikers. You can either spend it, invest it or learn how to multiply it.
Well, that's what a former basketball player did. After he worked and earned some money, he made his money work for him and by doing that; he became a self made boss.
Former basketball player, Junior Bridgeman went from the basketball courts making 3 point shots, to the boardroom calling all the shots. Bridgeman played for the Milwaukee Bucks and seems like he was always destined, to be a man about his bucks.
Learning how to strategize as a basketball player, Junior Bridgeman applied that knowledge to strategize as a business man, who now owns over 350 franchise restaurants.
Knowing he would retire from his basketball career one day, Bridgeman started to map out his blueprint and took an interest in franchising. With a salary of $350,000 playing as a basketball player for the Clippers at the time, Junior Bridgeman used his earnings as a stepping stone to become a multi-millionaire. This was a man who had a game plan for sure!
Junior Bridgeman invested his money into popular franchise restaurants such as: Wendy's, but he did not just invest his money; he multiplied it through those investments. Bridgeman started off as an employee at Wendy's to learn about the whole operation of the restaurant, from its employees to its district managers and etc. Also, the financial aspects of the restaurants, as far as sales, money drop offs to the banks and balancing their supplies during peak seasons.
Junior Bridgeman started with the investment of three Wendy's franchise restaurants and now owns franchise restaurants across the nation, with over 150 locations. Bridgeman has stakes in Chili's franchsie also and continues to expand his kingdom, as the king of franchising with a networth of $400 million dollars. Bridgeman made history when he became the second largest Wendy's franchise owner in the world.
From humble beginnings, Junior Bridgeman made an everlasting career move in entrepreneurship.
