Would you rather be ultra rich, or financially free? Does managing personal finances have to be overwhelming? Can saving for retirement or paying off debt get easier?
While millions of people grapple with their financial situation, Jared dispels the belief that worry and stress must be a part of the journey to financial freedom.
