why BrightLights?

  • Rookies do not have the time and/or understanding to oversee their finances.
  • Rookies hire a financial advisor and business manager and no longer involve themselves in the management of their money, blindly trusting their advisors in an industry that's been plagued by fraud, scandals, and dishonesty.
  • Athletes will continue to go broke with this lack of oversight. It is too easy for fraudsters to steal from them.
  • Smart fraudsters steal from their clients in small increments that are hard for athletes to identify when he is spending tens of thousands of dollars a month.
  • Smart fraudsters exploit their clients in ways they know the athlete would not understand. 
  • People who take control of your money after you've become rich should not be trusted without independent oversight.
  • Athletes in the sports industry have been stolen from and exploited for decades now. Nobody has fixed this problem. Why do you think that is?   
  • BrightLights is the solution. It's that simple.

Former NFL All-Pro and NFL Man of the Year, Nnamdi Asomugha:

"I majored in finance at the University of California at Berkeley, but even that didn’t prepare me for protecting my money as a professional athlete. For athletes, it’s extremely tough to trust people with your finances. It’s so easy to be victimized. It’s crazy. It’s happened to me as an NFL player, to be honest. I think it’s happened to 99% of players in the league.”
