"Don’t worry about being successful, but work toward being significant and the success will naturally follow."

Oprah Winfrey

Many former (and sometimes current) college and professional athletes turn to entrepreneurship after their playing careers conclude.  Entrepreneurship is an obvious career choice for athletes, because there are so many similarities between sports and starting and running a business. Athletes work long hours honing their skills, fight through setbacks and injuries, compete with different personalities and backgrounds, and (last but not least) perform in competition.  Similarly, entrepreneurs work feverishly and industriously to launch their businesses and sometimes just to stay afloat, overcome numerous issues and obstacles, work with people with diverging thoughts, interests, and ideas, and compete to make their companies viable and relevant in the marketplace.
