Top 10 Money Myths That Block Your Financial Freedom.

This is one of my favourite topics.

Most ideas that people believe about money are just not true or not optimal.

My blog, Unconventional Wisdom, is about all the things I’ve learned over the years from my experience writing thousands of financial plans and reading hundreds of books.

Mark Twain said it: “It ain’t what you don’t know that gets you into trouble. It’s what you know for sure that just ain’t so.“

In this week’s video I go in-depth on each myth and debunk them with facts about what works and what doesn’t to create wealth in your life.

Watch to find out:
