Learning to Talk About Money, with Cody Loughlin

Episode 207:

Cody Loughlin is the ultimate serial entrepreneur. He began learning finance at age 18, was a millionaire by age 27, but then went bankrupt and had to rebuild at age 28. Cody retired at 39 to pursue his passion for teaching financial literacy, successful mindset and entrepreneurship that schools refuse to teach.

Cody’s companies have reached over $200 million in sales, and Cody has landed on the INC 5000 list of fastest growing companies in America twice. Between opening 13 different companies and counting, Cody serves as the Vice President of a commercial bank and has financed over $100 million in loans during that time.

Realizing the lack of financial education in our school systems, Cody has set out to change the financial trajectory of today’s youth, by giving tools to parents to help them deepen their relationships with their children while equipping them with the information they need to be financially free.
