Terrell Owens is one of the many sports stars to feature on this list. For his 15 seasons in the NFL, the talented wide receiver made more than $80 million, but he has very little to show for it now after being on the hook for child support plus a couple of bad investments.

Take a moment and wonder who his financial and investment advisers were. It’s about surrounding yourself with the right people.
