“We’re all working very hard for our money so let’s give it that extra line of care so it can grow”

Most of us know how to MAKE money, but struggle to save and grow. As a financial advisor with a powerful personal experience shifting careers, Chris Hempstead understands the deeper dynamics dictating your financial situation. We discuss how budgeting, discipline, intentionality, and decisiveness play a role in creating a life of abundance and wealth. We also cover why men fear failure, how to own our self-worth, why every money issue is fixable.
