About me:

I founded Pocket of Money, LLC to help you to take control of your money and live a world-class lifestyle. I am constantly studying finance and modifying the tools I created in order to be the most effective and useful. I want to empower you with the knowledge, tools, and skills you need to control your money and live your best life.

 

 

I believe financial literacy is important and necessary to manage your cash flow. However, an important thing I learned from years of working with clients, it’s not just the knowledge. It’s taking action on that knowledge day in and day out. Creating wealthy habits is key. That’s how W.I.S.E. Financial Fitness was born.
