Speaking Topic

Financial Empowerment is a Necessary Skill for Survival
Why empowerment and not education? Because education without action fails! So, now what? You weren’t taught personal finance in school and it seems everyone in the real world is just trying to sell you something. Where are you supposed to learn how money works? More importantly, how to make money work for you?

Money Vehicle is a financial education program for people who are looking to take ownership of their financial future. The program grew out of Jedidiah’s real-life dilemma of being handed an NFL check and not knowing what to do with it. Together, we will unwrap the complicated language of money and give you the clarity it took him years as a Certified Financial Planner to find.

The goal is to walk away with the education and actions to create a plan where money works for you!
