Being sportsmen is like living a dream especially if you are a star. It is about huge paycheck, huge amount of fans, media coverage, living in a limelight and all those good stuff, but this dream doesn’t last much long as in most of the sports the prime age is from 20-35 and after that players are long forgotten and new stars come up, may be in sports people retire by 35 because it may seem too old and physically it is tough to play at an higher level but in reality it is still a young age and a normal person has many years of life ahead of him left. So what to do with all those years left. Many become commentators or t v pundits, some become coaches, trainers while some just enjoy retirement life while there are a few folks who start up a business and become Entrepreneurs!..
