In this episode…
Styron Powers worked in health and safety for large corporations. As he put it, his job was to “protect life: the health, wellness, and physical safety of employees and the people in the communities”. Throughout his career, he was able to work in ~30 countries, and he met a lot of wonderful people. He made many friends who would tell him that they’d be working for the rest of their lives and when he asked why they said they “couldn’t afford to retire”. That’s when he started studying U.S. financial literacy and how poorly many Americans manage their finances.
Styron discovered that about 60% of Americans could not afford a $400.00 to $1,000.00 emergency bill – car, heating, medical, or any other sudden cost. So he started writing a blog to help his readers understand how he had personally chosen financial freedom and how to achieve it for themselves. He also does coaching and mentorship – though he’s careful to tell folks: While happy to share his finance and investment lessons, he is NOT a licensed financial advisor or planner. Please do not construe suggestions in his blog or today’s talk as recommendations for your situation. For individual financial advice, please seek your licensed CPA or financial advisors or, even better, improve your financial literacy.

I am a proud nerd (as my beautiful wife and daughter have told me) investment and finance blogger with an N.C. State, Chemical Engineering, University Rutgers, MBA and Harvard University, Advanced Management education.
I left a corporate career because I desired to make a difference as a speaker and writer. I was blessed to be coached and mentored by strong women and men in my family and professional life. It is my time to serve and give back.
I started my first business at ~13 years of age (a small but brilliantly created plant nursery). I am a successful investor in stocks, options, real estate and am happy to share my finance and investment lessons. I am NOT a licensed financial advisor. Please do not construe my suggestions on this blog as recommendations for your situation. As an investor, you must establish your risk/loss tolerance. Investment in any asset involves risk, including complete loss.
Please seek your licensed CPA or fiduciary financial advisors for individual financial advice.
I write this weekly blog to make an impact by reaching an audience and demonstrating the need for financial literacy. I will help you get there.
