What’s going on? My name is Jed Collins. Let me tell you how I spent my first NFL check: quickly, as in all at once. Now that was to buy a wedding ring (we’ve been married for over ten years now, so unreal investment), but I remember thinking for the first time that I had never really been taught much about real-life money habits.
So, like almost everything in my life, I dove in head first. When I wasn’t at the team facility, I was learning finance. When I retired from the league after seven seasons I had learned enough to earn my Certified Financial Planning certificate and start working for a top firm.
I was doing great work with great people, but there was something gnawing at me. We were helping people who were already very financially literate gain more wealth. We weren’t helping folks like 24 year-old me.
So, again, I dove in head first. I started my own company geared at bringing financial literacy to everybody. Everybody has the potential to be financially literate, but potential is often just the gap between people and success. With Your Money Vehicle, we eliminate potential. We give folks the tools and resources they need to make behavioral changes to find that success.
