Eric Arnold’s personal finance story is not for the risk-averse.
Eric is what you might call a serial entrepreneur.
Whatever people have in their brain that prevents them from taking huge risks… yeah, Eric doesn’t have that.
What does this mean for Eric?
It means when the rest of us were working our 9 to 5s - making spreadsheets for our bi-weekly paycheques, Eric was building businesses.
Some did very well and some did not.
With success comes failure, but Eric learned something from every business.
Today Eric is CEO of Planswell, a company that provides free financial plans to Canadians. Planswell is doing great, having raised $13 Million dollars to date and so far providing free financial plans to over 100,000 Canadians.
But a lot happened before Planswell was even an idea. Here’s Eric to take us through his personal finance story.
