In this week's episode I share my early struggles with financial literacy and how I faked my way through the financial statements as I ran my first company.  It wasn't until I became fully aware of my bad financial decisions and how they impacted the lives of people that I cared about, that I decided to change.  After decades of studying, consulting, and serving as a CFO, I have witnessed the powerful transformation that occurs in businesses and careers as individuals invest in boosting their financial IQ. If I could do it, you too can learn the language of money and accelerate growth and profits. Tune in to learn about the pivotal moment in my life that fueled my passion for setting a "50 by 50 goal" and put me on the course of increasing financial literacy on a global scale.To learn more about my online Boosting Your Financial IQ course, click here.
