This is the first time I will discuss about football. I believe that most of the football fans know about the famous clubs like Real Mahrid, Barcelona, Manchester United, Liverpool, Paris St Germain etc.
I personally prefer the fan-owned club. I will not reveal the name of the football club which I support since young. The fan-owned club does not have a rich benefactor to support its finance. It has to rely solely on its income to balance the books. As such, there will be a need for the club to have its own academy to produce the academy graduates in which it can field in the first team squad. When the academy graduates become established first team players, it is inevitable that the big clubs will be swopping for these players. The fan-owned club will have to sell its best players to boast its coffers. The generated revenue can be used to improve the facilities of the academy which will be better equipped to produce better academy graduates.
I believe that the above approach can be applied for one who seeks to achieve FI. One will need to ensure that the resources in his/her hand are utilised in a prudent way. The resources will in turn generate more resources for one in future. One will not need to rely on his full-time employment for survival.
