Taught by: Katina Kavadas
As a serial entrepreneur who founded three successful companies before the age of 30, my drive to succeed in life began in my teens when I realized the power of positive motivation. I was lucky enough to have a good mentor who guided me through the intricacies of financial management which helped me to understand the value of money, how to identify and seize opportunities to make money and how to manage an investment portfolio.
