In today’s episode with Bob Lotich we discuss how to make more, save more, and give more money than you can ever imagine.
In his early 20’s Bob found himself at his breaking point… Overwhelmed by debt and stranded 1,000 miles from home with only $7 to his name.
Fast forward to today, Bob’s reached a level of financial freedom he never dreamed possible: owning a paid off house by age 31 and even reaching his family’s personal goal of giving one million dollars by age 40.
Listen to learn how to start giving money to others and how Bob’s family is currently giving away over 40% of their income.
