Welcome to the sixth episode of The Sandbox, my experimental project to develop interviewing skills and discover the nuances of creating a podcast.
Today’s guest is Luis Savery, founder of Templo Education. In this episode, Luis and I discuss why he started an organization focused on educating young people about financial literacy. We talk about why he believes your purchases reflect what you truly value, how to get someone to be your mentor, and the small yet significant difference between discipline and impulse.
This episode is perfect for anyone looking to be more intentional about how they handle their money. I hope you enjoy it!
