Cliff notes on how to go pro: (There's some good stuff in here)

The environment the athlete is choosing should be prioritized over the salary. If the athlete is running well, he/she will make money--So the situation matters more than the salary. With that being said, salary/bonus/reductions should be considered--Let's say an athlete found a good situation, but he/she has to have a full time job, it's probably not worth it. Or if the athlete has a good situation but the contract has massive reductions, is the athlete going to be able to handle that pressure? It might be worth taking a no reduction deal with a good-but-not-quite-as-good environment. It depends on the person.
