Do what you can, with what you have, where you are- these are the words of Theodore Roosevelt.

Today we're applying it to the evolving journey of becoming financially literate to create experiences, wisdom, and strategies for the next generation to DIY their generational wealth and become financially independent. 

We've all heard the advice- go to school, get good grades, go to college, get a degree and hold a job to retire at 65. 

Our guest expert Kofi began this journey with the intention of having his piece of the American dream. Little did he know this dream came with a  cost that would leave him ignoring the reality of the hefty bill and piling on interest and stress over several years. 

Once he faced his reality, he optimized his finances and began to see a clear path forward.

Is there another way, and are we missing strategies that could help us optimize our work, investments and reduce our cost of living to retire (financially) early? 

I'm excited to explore this topic with our guest expert, Kofi!

Kofi Gyebi is the founder of 400LB Elephant, a personal finance company that helps young professionals achieve financial independence.   His coaching empowers people to get out of debt, save money, and build generational wealth. Kofi's debt-free journey is a testament to what is possible with a bit of focus and discipline: he paid off $34,000 of student loans in one year. In addition, he is a community leader, recognized as a Champion of Justice and Equality by the Urban League of Greater Atlanta, and a graduate of LEAD Atlanta.
