Journey From the NFL to Wall Street

Whether Authentic Miles Burris Jersey it’s on the football field or Wall Street, Eugene Profit knows how to play the game.

Profit, a Yale University graduate with a bachelor’s degree in economics and a former cornerback for the New England Patriots and the Washington Redskins, entered the financial sector in 1991 when he was forced to retire from the NFL due to a torn hamstring. News recently spoke with Profit, 48, about his passion for finance, what the NFL taught him about money and how the company he founded 15 years ago with $300,000 in assets under management has grown to nearly $2 billion today. His responses have been edited.

What was it like making the transition from the NFL to Wall Street?

Any transition from a sports league to something else is extraordinarily difficult. You go from being in this world where there’s this degree of exposure and popularity. You’ve been used to having structured schedules and structured goals in your life. Then you transition over into this world of complete freedom and isolation. I think that’s a pretty big adjustment. And don’t forget that, in most cases, you’re pretty young when this transition occurs.

What did you tell Emmitt Thomas, the Redskins position coach, when he asked you during your last year in the NFL whether you’re going into coaching or going to Wall Street?

I told him I wasn’t sure. I was equally split on what direction to take. In coaching, you are directing people to achieve. You are trying to analyze where they are and help them get better. It’s like that in money Authentic Sio Moore Jersey management, where you help individuals with their portfolio and help them make good investments.

What was the deciding factor in choosing to pursue finance?

When I left Yale, I knew that when I stopped playing football, I would need something to do that I was passionate about and would enjoy. For me, that’s Authentic Mychal Rivera Jersey always been based in economics and business and entrepreneurship.

Before I was injured, I had already started looking into business ventures and looking at stock brokerages. I had my hand in the stock market, so it was a [logical] switch.

Did the NFL prepare you for the fierce competition on Wall Street?

As an individual, I would say yes. There’s an acronym a lot of NFL players use for the Usama Young Raiders Jersey league: not for long. There’s always somebody working as hard as you, and they’re always training someone to be your replacement. I think Wall Street is that way if you don’t perform, clients replace you.

Did you gain financial knowledge on the football field?

As a football player, you have to be consumed with playing the game. You need to prepare and put yourself in the best position to keep playing. Intense focus and going through sequential steps to succeed is applicable to a lot of areas, so it was easy for me to apply it to working in finance.

Who was the most influential person in your financial career?

The answer may seem odd, but I think that person was me. I really didn’t know how difficult this business is. I went out on my own and focused on growing my own firm managing the money the way I saw fit. I didn’t try to emulate a lot of other people. I think not knowing how this business works allowed me time to pay for my own mistakes. I wasn’t making money starting out, but I had money from [my football career] to support my business.

The fact that I grew up without a lot of money allowed me to be comfortable not making a lot in the beginning. When I started my company, that was a period of time when I could have been making a lot more doing work for someone else, but I was focused on doing it my way and stayed with it long enough to convince more people to allow Profit Investments to manage their portfolio.
