Quote from Brigitte
"I truly believe that having an understanding of personal finance and business can help people pursue the goals that they have set out for themselves. I enjoy keeping people informed because at the end of the day the knowledge that I share can help someone pursue the next great invention, or it can save them from a personal financial crisis."
