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!

Communicating How to U.S.E. Financial Education

The world of finance has changed over the last 30 years and with it so should the conversation.
The hurdle many will face is how they see money and the timeframe they see it through. This mindset is one of the first areas to address through educating more around how money works. But education alone will fail as it does not lead to application or empowerment.
Your members will all have specific needs that they are looking for in a relationship with those who handle their money. These needs can be addressed through empowering your members to U.S.E. (Understand, Strategize, Efficient) money. Truly providing the content to better Understand money, then delivering a system to Strategize their money, and always providing resources to be more Efficient with their money.
Together we will begin the conversation on how to empower ourselves and your members to begin driving toward financial freedom!
