Whether you’re a financial white belt or a seasoned black belt in money management, there’s always room for growth and refinement. Leanne and Shayne discuss how even the masters have masters in both martial arts and finance, highlighting the perpetual learning journey in these domains. Tune in for a fresh perspective, enhanced discipline, and valuable insights that will elevate your wealth awareness.
