Russell Shepard making in impact post NFL career
Former New York Giants’ wide receiver Russell Shepard had a very successful career as a special teams players and as a wide receiver that he was able to retire at the age of 30.
With Shepard’s NFL career behind him he’s really thriving and it actually started after his rookie season when he started a trucking business on the side. That was business was taken over by family members so he could focus on his football career. But SI.com says that Shepard ended up making more money with his side business than he did as an NFL player, which is remarkable.
After retiring, Shepard thought about becoming a sports agent, but when he attended the NFL Draft combine last year he was turned off.
Shepard ended up deciding to create his own waste management company called Shep Boys Waste Management after talking to his wife’s former boss who owned a waste company as well. He told him that a major issue was construction sites not keeping their toilets clean, which prompted Shepard to start his business
Kevin Armstrong of SI.com did a great story on Shepard’s success now that his career in the NFL is over and I highly recommend that you read it.
Despite the fact that Shepard started his business during the current COVID-19 pandemic, he has been thriving and of course wish him nothing but the best.
