A Fighting Chance was created to address the lack of financial literacy in high school curriculums around the world, leaving young people unequipped to manage their finances as they enter the work world. As youth enter their financial lives, it is critical that they have the foundational knowledge and tools to make sound financial decisions that build wealth through measured risk-taking and financial strategy. Written by an award winning Canadian Chartered Professional Accountant, the book is written in an approachable unintimidating tone and provides real examples, tactics and mindsets which allow young readers to harness their most valuable financial asset: time. A Fighting Chance provides readers with a financial guidebook for their life that will allow them to create and execute a plan that allows them to accomplish both their financial and non-financial goals.
