About the Author:
My name is Adam Carroll and I would describe myself as a serial entrepreneur, a lifelong learner, a teacher, and a challenger of the status quo. I have been a professional speaker and seminar leader for the past 10 years – my target audiences generally being students and young professionals. My company National Financial Educators does financial literacy education and consulting with educational and financial institutions, as well as companies looking to expand their employee’s financial literacy.I believe strongly in the following philosophy:
1. It’s better to build a bigger LIFE, not a bigger lifestyle.
2. If you do for two years what most people won’t do, you’ll do for the rest of your life what most people can’t do.
3. We have four legacies to leave future generations: Money Freedom, Time Freedom, Relationship Freedom, Service Freedom.
