Bite-sized value!

I really like how Johnathan takes some of the biggest topics I see addressed as a financial advisor and boil them down into value-packed episodes, so I don’t have to commit to several days of commuting or a weekend afternoon to make sure I get through an entire topic.

Stick to your plan

Educational, informative, and positive. A needed break from the typical financial gloom presented by the media. Jonathan does a tremendous job presenting his points clearly so all can understand.
