WHAT THIS IS ABOUT?
If you watch my videos, you WILL save/make more money. Period. Then you can use it the way you want to. Interested? Keep reading then. Actually, go subscribe NOW, then read on. 

I am going to talk about everything money. Not just the basic personal finance don't-spend-more-than-you-make crap (there's your first free lesson, don't spend more than you make...you're welcome). The reality is I've heard money gurus and professionals all talk about the same stuff over and over. Some of that will be regurgitated here. But we'll do a lot MORE. Oh, and I want to give it away for FREE which is why I need support. Not because I'm so super nice, but because I have a family and a dog and they like food and living in a house (I know, super needy).

Our money problems are BEYOND credit cards. They're cultural, psychological, and emotional! Banks, businesses and the government happily use all those things AGAINST you for a lot of reasons. Why? Well that is what we're going to talk about and KNOWING about their tricks will help you. We're also going to talk about ways to make money. How to get an awesome vacation cheaper than you ever dreamed! Is college really worth it anymore? What are cryptocurrencies and blockchain and how will it change money forever? And soooo much more. So if you aren't happy with your financial situation or you want to learn more about money or you have to deal with money on a daily basis, this is for you.

OUR SERIOUS PROBLEMS...
My friends call me Stephen, Courson, or Stevie Wonders (I know, they aren't that original) and I'm on a mission to bring fun, engaging, financially educational resources to the masses. Our government fails us by not educating our youth in schools about even the most basic money skills and then expects us to make complicated buying decisions for school loans which has buried the current generation in debt. 84% of kids say they learn money habits from their parents and only 14% of parents feel confident in their ability to teach their children proper money skills. On top of that, 60% of Americans say they can't pay cash for a $500 emergency...it's the most WIDESPREAD SOCIAL INJUSTICE in America that affects every demographic including people who are "rich".

WHY SHOULD YOU LISTEN TO A GUY LIKE ME?
Because I'm not special. I came up in a lower-middle class family that didn't have any formal financial education. I was the first to graduate from a university. I didn't start off with a million dollar loan like some people have, but I have worked hard, earned and invested, lost and won, and had a ton of fun along the way while doing it! I know this stuff works because I LIVE IT. I want to go beyond personal finance and share all I know about the "tricks of the trade". I have had a very successful career in Sales and Marketing and have a degree in....drum roll....ACCOUNTING. It's a weird combo, I know, but it gives me a unique perspective not many have. Also, if it makes you feel better, I partner with the University of Florida and speak to students on the topic of money regularly. 

I'm aware of the digital manipulation that happens every time we look at a screen. The average human in the USA sees over 3000 ads PER DAY. Did you know that extended warrantees are the biggest scams in the US providing almost pure profit for corporations? By knowing how you're being tricked into buying things you don't need (and sometimes, things you don't even want), you'll be able to save more for things you actually DO need or want!

WHAT WILL I ACCOMPLISH WITH YOUR SUPPORT?
Free. Online. Stuff. Youtube, Facebook, and whatever else people seem to want to use to achieve Jedi-mind-bending levels of freedom. I do eventually want to create a formal curriculum for people to be able to follow in order to get out of debt, learn about loans, and understand the fundamentals of money. This will enable people to make smart buying decisions around cars, houses, cell phones and anything else the heart desires. Then, when they finally are out of debt, how to create HABITS that make it easier to build wealth, invest, and go on that epic vacation you dreamed about.

I need funds for the curriculum, camera/microphone, web presence and editing. Help me help our nation. As I've mentioned, I'm trying to make the resources free, exciting and engaging on Youtube and Facebook (with a formal curriculum potentially down the line). This is a noble venture. The #1 reason for divorce is Financial Problems (more than infidelity). Jesus talked about money more than Heaven and Hell combined (not joking)! Thomas Jefferson, our 3rd president, said to never spend money before you've earned it. The dang Egyptians created rules about money thousands of years ago that still apply today! The rules of money are timeless, universal, and are tied to our deepest desires. Show me what a person spends their money on, and I'll tell you what is important to them. Financial stability is key for happiness and fulfillment and I want to spread that like a virus! A really good, healthy virus. That is my mission. JOIN ME!!!

  • Keep the ads out of my YouTube and Facebook videos! 
  • It's one of the main ways that people that vlog can make money, but it’s kind of annoying. 
  • I don't want to annoy people but I have lots of costs to cover (web hosting, development, cloud storage, editing, my time away from my family to do this!).


Your support will help me cover costs and keep my videos ad-free!
