For a while, Tracy Eaton had it all. For six years, he was a star athlete in the NFL with the best coach in the world. He primarily played for the Atlanta Falcons, although he had brief stints with the Houston Oilers and Phoenix Cardinals.
For four years, he met an amazing woman, Kimberly, who proposed to him. Kimberly proposes to Tracy in a comical twist of fate. After getting married, they lived lavishly in Atlanta for half a year, and in the off-season they lived in a beautiful house in Seattle. Tracy and Kimberly started their family shortly after they got married, and it looked like they couldn’t get any better.
There was a time, however, when Tracy suffered so many injuries and was so satisfied with his career as a professional athlete that he retired. He left the NFL voluntarily.
Tracy and his beautiful wife, Kimberly, played their sports as track stars in Arizona, and they both have a competitive spirit and try to be their best in whatever they try. Although they are both very successful now, they are also the most humble and down-to-earth people you will ever meet.
For Eaton, what matters most to success is integrity, belief and commitment. They are all busy for the right reasons. Whether it’s work or play, you won’t be slowing down for any reason. When Tracy retired from the NFL, you could bet that Eaton was shooting the same percentage as they’ve always been.
Unfortunately, while Tracy was making money in the NFL, the cost of maintaining the lifestyle they had become accustomed to was more than they could afford. They have hundreds of thousands of dollars constantly sitting in the bank and buried in credit card debt. About a year later, Tracy followed in her father’s footsteps and became a stockbroker.
