Lacey Langford

Join David Pere and Alexander Felice with Lacey Langford as they discuss the importance of financial management for military service members.

 

Lacey is an accredited financial counselor, military wife, mom, and veteran. She is also the creator and host of The Military Money Show.

 

Being a military wife and frequently transferring to different places has made it hard for her to find work. So, she leveraged her knowledge of investing and building wealth and started her own coaching business to help other service members, veterans, and their families get their financial lives running smoothly.

 

In this episode, Lacey shares her insight on living below your means, preparing for your retirement while on active duty, and why you should save 30% of your income while you’re still young. Stay tuned!

My name is David Pere, I am an active duty Marine, and have realized that service members and the working class use the phrase "I don't get paid enough" entirely too often. The reality is that most often our financial situation is self-inflicted. After having success with real estate investing, I started From Military to Millionaire to teach personal finance and real estate investing to service members and the working class. As a result, I have helped many of my readers increase their savings gap, and increase their chances of achieving financial freedom! - Click here to SUBSCRIBE: https://bit.ly/2Q3EvfE to the channel for more awesome videos!
