Ted Daniels, Founder of the Society of Financial Education and Professional Development

This podcast features Ted Daniels, a former U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development employee, who left his career to establish a nonprofit focused on financial education.

Ted also touches on the Ambassador Program, which empowers college students to teach financial literacy, fostering a ripple effect of life skills improvement.

Chris Corinthian, Founder of FinLit University

Chris Corinthian's framework for minimizing student loan debt involves using tools like the Common App, College Board Scholarship Search, Scholly, and Google to discover scholarships tailored to one's interests and deadlines. He suggests students take advantage of local resources, such as alumni associations, to find scholarships that are often less competitive for local applicants. Chris also emphasizes the importance of continuously applying for scholarships throughout college, not just in high school, to maintain financial support and minimize the need for loans.

In this podcast episode, Crystina Cardozo, an educator and real estate investor, shares her journey into real estate investing and offers valuable insights into the world of short-term rentals. She discusses her experiences buying properties in the Poconos and expanding into other areas, highlighting the importance of developing systems and networking with other investors.
