BONA5D BITS to "Fueling Your Finance Fire" Let's Talk About Financial Literacy - Jun 2, 2019 - 7:38:31 PM

In both cases, if the foundation is not solid, what is built upon it will not be sustainable.

So, though the BONA5D BITS I will share are not all encompassing or as comprehensive as would be covered in a BONA5DCC seminar...
