Understanding the Monetary System
"What You Absolutely Need to Know about How the Financial System was Created, How it Functions, and How it Controls Your Life!"
This course is an ongoing collection of great information about the monetary system we are all living within, utilizing daily, and are beholden to for life. Given the importance money plays in our lives, prudence suggests that we should all take time to fully understand how it all works.
Here you will begin to learn about debt, credit, banking, taxation, and central banks like the Federal Reserve of the USA.
Many third party presenters are showcased with attribution links back to the source, where available. Of course, I add my commentary, slides, handouts, and interpretations where necessary. This course is a constant work-in-progress so keep checking back for new content as I discover it, create it, and upload it to the curriculum.
As a graduate of the University of Calgary, I possess degrees in both Economics (micro & macro) and Commerce (specializing in Finance and Management Science.)
I began a financial planning career in 1992 and served hundreds of clients over the next 5 years. I moved on to the private equity markets where, as VP Finance, I successfully helped raise venture capital for a very unique sports-related training device. Since 1998, I have run several businesses in marketing, branding, fitness, and multimedia.
In 2011, I returned to the private equity markets and now coach clients on the fundamentals of money, wealth creation, demographics, wealth cycles, currencies, commodities, small business development, estate planning, asset protection, and income diversification.
As a Wealth, Health, and Business Development coach, I endeavor to educate my clients in the two fundamental areas of Wealth and Health, with a focus on business development in many areas.
Once educated on the fundamentals of the due diligence process, I help clients create and manage wealth, and protect it from the ravages of inflation, taxes, and the volatile nature of the financial markets.
I am a strong advocate of optimal health and I am proud to use my extensive fitness industry experience to promote the national “90 Day Challenge” platform to foster better dietary and exercise habits for my clients, their families, and their fellow employees.
For businesses, I also seek out new projects; perform detailed needs analysis regarding my client's media marketing strategy; and design multimedia video & TV-ready presentations to help my clients put their best faces forward.
I utilize a variety of publications & social media platforms to showcase unique businesses. In developing a cohesive marketing and branding strategy, I help clients enhance their brand recognition, and boost sales possibilities through enhanced product & service education.
