  6. The NFL has a draft to recruit top talent. What financial tools or apps can you draft for your money game?
  7. How can you determine the Most Valuable Player within your financial strategy?
  8. In football, penalties can set teams back. How do you avoid financial ‘penalties’ like late fees, high-interest debt, or unnecessary expenses?
  9. The Super Bowl is the ultimate goal for NFL teams. What’s your Super Bowl of financial achievements, and how will you get there?
  10. If you could choose an NFL team to represent your financial approach, which team would it be, and what lessons can you draw from their style of play?
