Investing Money 101 | with, Bret Johnson

Bret is exceptional at money management, investing and staying on top of our finances. Did you know that we were once $500k in debt? Bret committed to understanding how to get us out of that debt by allowing our money to make us money. 

Today, he’ll teach you exactly that as he breaks down — with four simple steps — how to invest in your future! Because this episode is geared toward the newbie (whether you’re just getting started with investing or your financial status leaves much to be desired), Bret won’t cover individual stocks. 

But rather… he’ll share some of the safest, easiest and least expensive ways to get started investing. With the knowledge and strategies given in this episode, you’re sure to walk away feeling empowered for the future — for both you and your family!
