Episode 83: Coaching and Financial Literacy: Thinking About Retirement

Episode 82: Coaching and Financial Literacy...Wait, What?

Oftentimes coaches go on courses to learn the nuances of technical development, tactics, psycho-social development and much more. In a nontraditional job like coaching, however, what often gets ignored is financial literacy. Given the current crisis that the majority of the world finds itself in currently, I thought this would be as good a time as any to talk about my journey going from "get a new car on that salary" financially illiterate to a much better path today and how anyone can get started! For some, it may just be common sense. It may be what you've been doing already. For others, it may be some needed information that I have found many coaches, especially those starting off in the profession, don't receive yet desperately need.
