Back in 2017 Joe sat down with John Hope Bryant. John talked to Joe about how some people didn’t get “the memo” on how to be rich. Even so, it’s up to us individually to change our lives and achieve financial independence. This was a FANTASTIC interview back in 2017, and the same is true today.
Here’s the original show notes from 2017:
How come other people are wealthy and you aren’t? John Hope Bryant believes that for many people, it’s because they didn’t come from the right neighborhoods, have the right friends, or were born into the right family. They didn’t get “the memo” on how to become rich. Yet, Bryant says, that isn’t an excuse, and it’s up to YOU to change your life to achieve the financial freedom you want. If you’re looking to be inspired, today’s podcast is for you.
Plus, we’ll also share headlines from the world of financial planning, throw out the Haven Life line to a lucky listener, score with some of Doug’s delightful trivia, and more.
