Years later, he joined Ford Motor Company, serving in various IT leadership roles before taking an early retirement in 2018.
He was fortunate to earn a good salary during my corporate career.
Unfortunately, the good income just masked his issues managing money.
Alden did not know how money works. He used credit cards liberally, preventing him from saving money and preparing better for retirement.
He now has a financial future in order and secure.
Often, small business owners suffer financially the same way Alden did personally. They have good revenue and profit in their business, but they do not understand how money works. Been there, done that!
