Your Money Vehicle , With Jedidiah Collins


As we continue to explore the topic of men and money during the month of June, today’s guest is Jedidiah Collins. He is an NFL veteran that played in the league for 7 years.

In between seasons, he earned his CFP to become an expert in the field of personal finance. He’s also the author of the book Your Money Vehicle and host to the Rookie to Veteran podcast. He’s also a married man and dad to two daughters. And, his mission is to empower people to own their future both professionally and financially.
