Mission

Repetition is the mother of learning.

More reps. More strength.

More discipline. More opportunities.

More knowledge. More power.

We are on mission to empower collegiate and professional athletes to maximize their potential by developing the necessary habits today in order to live the future they want tomorrow.

Navigating life without a roadmap can lead to nowhere—Too often athletes are given only the playbook to succeed on the field , but not the tools to maximize success off it.

Secure the Bag equips athletes to become elite stewards of their finances through effective repetition designed to align their actions with their intentions.

Led by founder Didier Occident, the STB team applies a unique blend of interactive demonstrations and participation that make financial concepts digestible, retainable and implementable.

We believe that you play the way you practice on the field and off the field. Secure the Bag is devoted to teaching athletes how to prepare for life-changing financial earnings so they can confidently live the life they’ve always dreamed.

Let’s get to work and secure your future.

You did a really great job, I even learned a few things…we wanted to educate our guys to understand they can pay themselves instead of living check to check. We want to help educate them so that when they leave here they have a plan.
