Personal Notes

My passion for sharing the financial literacy message began when I was in graduate school. Fellow MBA students were struggling with personal finance concepts in our curriculum and in their day-to-day lives.

This experience taught me that if sound money management is confusing to highly educated and well-paid professionals, then average people need help and motivation to achieve their financial dreams and goals.
