The purpose of the show is to discuss Financial Literacy issues in the Houston Community and beyond. It is my aim to reframe the current discussion by taking it away from the numbers and academia. This is done by focusing on the interview format as well as storytelling and education. My goal is to make the topic interesting and exciting by bringing on high profile guest as well as every day people.

Money Matters Episode 275 – Does College Really Prepare You for Work w/ Megan O'Connor
College is one of the biggest investments that families make, and yet many students spend much of their time in college figuring out what they want to do. There’s very little time between high school and college to explore career interests. 30% of undergrads change their major at least once within three years of initial enrollment. 40% of bachelors’ degree holders would study a different major if they had to do it all over again.
Everyone has an issue with money and most people are not fully aware of handling their finances and economy status. You'll surely find each episode interesting.
I really don’t think the hosts know much about the subject matter. Bad sound quality. Bad report. Bad all the way around, no idea why they are wasting their time on this podcast, it’s a real stinker.
This is a great podcast for anyone looking to start up their business.
