I am a self taught learner about my finances.  I have spent the last 20+ years reading books, watching shows about money and finances.  Now I want to teach others as a Money Coach that finances don't have to be a scary thing.  I also think it is very important to teach kids about finances as early as you can.  I am a volunteer with Junior Achievement.
