About the Episode
Nelson Soh is a Certified Public Accountant by trade and an entrepreneur, life coach, and author. Nelson is a financial literacy educator who has set a goal to help one million people change their lives financially, physically, mentally, and emotionally.
Financial literacy is an aspect we should all need to learn about in order to have successful lives in the modern world. Unfortunately, many of us do not get enough opportunities to properly learn and develop financial literacy early in life as it’s something we rarely learn in school nor do many of our parents teach us.
Throughout today’s episode, we dive deep into numerous topics related to financial literacy, life goals, habits, and more.
Nelson opens up about the career expectations his parents had for him, how he eventually convinced them to help him follow a career path he enjoyed, and what we should teach our kids to help them succeed in life. He also talks about the focus of the book he’s co-authoring that’s scheduled to release in August 2021.
In this interview, we dive deep into five key concepts related to financial literacy that we should incorporate into our lives. We also discuss how to carefully handle credit cards so that you don’t end up with astronomical amounts of credit card debt and how to plan your career ahead to reduce the financial stress you get from student loans.
Nelson co-founded FQS Consulting, a management firm that helps business owners succeed in their ventures. We talk about the unique value the company offers to business owners.
Another area we talk about in-depth is the concept of Nelson’s critical five. Nelson shares his wisdom on how selecting the five most important practices in your life and focusing on them helps you declutter your schedule and make your day more efficient. Wrapping up the conversation, we discuss how to develop good habits while eliminating bad habits that don’t contribute to your success.
