Adam Carroll is an internationally recognized speaker and thought leader in the field of financial education. He’s presented at over 600 college and university campuses, hundreds of leadership symposiums and countless local and regional events. Adam's TEDx talk at the London Business School has been viewed over half a million times on YouTube, and his work in financial education led to the crowd-funding and release of the student loan documentary Broke, Busted & Disgusted, coming out on Netflix this December. He is the author of Winning The Money Game and The Money Savvy Student, and the founder of MoneySavvy.com. Graduating from college quit some time ago, Adam ended up not only with a diploma but with a ton of student debt.
“While I was there, I lived like a rich college student, like most kids do today. But realized the error in my ways when I quickly became a broke professional.”
Luckily for Adam, meeting his girlfriend (and his now wife) during his senior year of college, they collectively put their heads together and found a way to blast through all of their debt, two years into their marriage!
“She told me 'Get rid of your debt or I have to get rid of you'”
It then occurred to him, that it is really quite simple to eliminate debt, and why wouldn’t he start to share his money savvy tips with everyone else? So he began teaching his methodology.
“My wife and I lived off of one of our salaries and used the other to while away our debt.”
Writing his first book, Winning the Money Game, led him to speaking opportunities on college campuses, which then again led him to a great opportunity to create a documentary coming soon to NETFLIX! (I cant wait to watch it!)
Adam is also in the midst of creating a course focused on “Raising Money Savvy Kids.” He believes that as parents and elders, it is our job to mold their minds at a young age on how they can win this money war and eliminate future debt. The perfect podcast to light the money flame underneath you and the most easy-to-use tips, to becoming debt free!
