“It’s important for an athlete like me to understand the income that I have especially having to pay taxes in the US but also in Europe and how that works. It’s complicated.”
24 year old Olympic and World Cup gold medalist skier Mikaela Shiffrin dropped by the set of Yahoo Finance to discuss success on and off the slopes especially in the realm of wealth management (first skier ever to win over $1,000,000 in prize money). Loved this simple quote ski racing:
“If you’re thinking enough to know that you’re thinking you’re not going fast enough.”
Mikaela went on to talk about how to navigate untold number of sponsorship offers she receives as one of the most popular athletes in the sport:
“The only think on my checklist – is does this match what I believe in? Do the values of this company align with my beliefs?”
Wise words on all fronts from breakout skier of the year Mikaela Shiffrin. Enjoy the offseason, see you in the fall.
