DNRE91 - Chris Miles: How To Pick Your Financial Advisors

August 25, 2021

After living what he thought was the good life as a financial advisor, Chris came to see how messed up the advice he was giving his clients. He also saw how messed up his own finances were and knew he had to change.

 

Chris was getting multiple debt collection calls each day, feeling extremely depressed, and didn’t know where to turn….until he came across some powerful insights that forever changed his life.

 

In this episode of DreamNation, we learn what those insights were and how we can turn our focus from fixing debt to eliminating debt with more cash flow. Chris and Casanova will break down how to stack your cash flow so you can pay off debts and start living the life of your dreams.
