Jason Fields, CFEI – Noted Financial Professional, Author & Financial Literacy Advocate
As a former investment adviser, insurance consultant, banker, and credit union branch manager, educating my clients was my top priority. I became a Certified Financial Education Instructor to help motivate, encourage, and educate the community to help others avoid some of the hard lessons that I learned.
My mission is to assist you in creating and maintaining a successful game plan that will help you improve your credit, reduce your debt, understand the basics of investments, establish a savings and manage your budget responsibly.
I believe that through financial literacy you can reach and achieve financial freedom so you can enjoy life the way God intended.
