Human Capital: Reading Books To Build Context Skills
"CEO's read on average 55 books per year!"
That, or a number close to it, is often sited as too how many books CEO's read. But why? Why do they read that much?

Conor Paid Off Most Of His Student Loans & Saved $1,000s By Developing A Plan
Conor graduated in 2017 with approximately 140k in student loan debt. Much of the debt was in private loans that had 10% plus rates.
He decided to get help from FitBUX in 2018.
He tried to initially refinance. However, he was denied. The reason was false reporting about a student loan from Undergrad that was damaging his credit score.
We worked with him to reestablish his credit so he could refinance as well as designed a financial plan to help him get on stable financial footing.
He was also able to get his Perkins Student Loans forgiven.
