In college, Brian Ford told his professors that he wanted to start a financial education company that would teach in a fun and engaging way.
“Great!” they said, “You can definitely do that.”
Then he told them that he didn’t want to charge the people attending, but wanted it to be a for-profit company.
The mood changed. He was told that it was a naive business model and that he needed to go back to the drawing board.
Turns out they were wrong. Brian made his dream come true with Momentum onUp, an industry-leading workplace financial wellness program.
Financial well-being is a real problem that is likely affecting your workplace; 28% of employees are distracted by finances at work and 70% of employees believe their employer has little concern for their financial well-being.
In this episode, I sit down with Brian and discussed ways companies can improve the financial well-being of their employees and some simple steps that you can take to improve your personal finances.
