Taking control of your finances can be intimidating. But today’s guest founded a company that helps people of all ages and financial backgrounds learn to manage their finances.

Ross Gerber is a financial guru who has been investing since the ripe age of 13 when he was gifted stock in Disney and Apple. He continued his career in finance after college to become SunAmerica’s youngest million-dollar branch manager. The Great Recession of 2008 was hard on Ross and around that same time, his house also burned down. Yet, even after losing so much, Ross saw a need for more financial education, so he co-founded Gerber-Kawasaki Wealth and Management Inc. in 2010.

Today, Ross and Stephynie discuss the role confidence plays in leadership, the importance of financial literacy, and how Ross’ dedicated attitude gave him massive success in the financial world.

If you want to learn more about your finances and what it takes to truly succeed, even amid huge challenges, tune in!
