Studies show that children can have foundational money experiences as early as age five. These lessons can last a lifetime and it’s important to make sure that young people have a health relationship with their possessions.

Mac Gardner has about two decades of experience working in the financial and technology space. He’s written multiple books and his most recent project is dedicated to teaching children the importance of understanding how money works. He also founded a technology firm dedicated to financial education for all. If you combine financial literacy and technology, you have a modern way of bringing the world together and offering vitally important information for all.

EP #96: Staying in Your Lane with Toluleke Famuyiwa
Potential is something to be experienced, not reached. You can’t force lessons and you can’t skip formative experiences. There’s also no end to the opportunity to learn. Stories are a great form of communication because they bring you as close as possible to an experience without actually being there. Understanding your story will allow you reach your potential. It draws the most information from the experiences you have.
Toluleke Famuyiwa is the type of person that can motivate you to do more than you ever expected. He’s had some very challenging times and without the proper effort, he wouldn’t be a doctor, author, and motivator. He teaches, speaks, and researches all about being a better version of yourself. He also adds in some humor which strengthens any message.

EP #95: Servant Leadership with Rich LaMonica
It’s not always easy to serve others but it’s essential to thrive. Humans were made to be in community with one another. Unfortunately, communities aren’t always thriving. There are times when needs arise and conflict exists. These are the most important times for us to support others. Those who can give of themselves consistently are those that make the biggest impact.
Rich LaMonica was born to be a soldier. Loyalty was instilled in him since being a young person as his father and grandfather are both Army veterans. Rich ended up having a 22 year active duty career and still works in service to the military. He has dedicated the next season of his life to helping other veterans and people from all walks of life be more loyal and find a new purpose after retiring from the military. Rich is an inspiring and determined leader.

EP #94: Your Leadership Voice with Iggy Perillo
We are all leaders in our lives whether it is by title or by default. Some of the most recognized leaders didn’t set out to have that role. They were passionate people who found a strong purpose. You might say they settled into their positions but settling is far from a leader’s mentality. In fact, leaders seek challenges and help others overcome them. This yields growth.
Working with sled dogs in the wilderness sounds like challenging work. This was one of the challenges that led Iggy Perillo to her career in leadership development. Deep work isn’t always complicated but it is necessary. It can come in many different forms and each person has their own ideal style. Iggy had dedicated her career to helping people find their leadership voice. You find that voice by consistently applying what you have and taking ownership in the leadership roles that you have.

EP #93: Internal Health with Simone Giangiordano
Taking care of yourself is among the most important things in life but it isn’t always that easy to do. High achievers tend to work hard at making something great or taking care of others and fail to consider their own situation. Burnout isn’t enjoyable but sometimes it’s necessary. The body shuts down and doesn’t allow you to continue down a destructive path.
Most impactmakers have experienced some form of burnout because we care so much about our work. We care about doing great things with the gifts and skills we have. However, we can’t do them if we are without the energy we need to be effective. If you are burnt out, you maybe have to take some time off. It will seem counterproductive but it’s absolutely necessary to get back to the effectiveness you desire. Simone Giordano had to be told she needed to take a break before she realized how much she need it.
