I am sick.
No weekly video this week.
See you next weekend!
Thank you.

It is Thanksgiving week. Thanksgiving is an American holiday to celebrate the birth of our country and to give thanks for positive things that have happened throughout the year. For those of you who live in America, I hope you had a great time celebrating with family and friends. Those of you who watch my channel will probably not be surprised, but I spent my Thanksgiving holiday thinking about business. I had some thoughts I wanted to share with you about why I am thankful to be an American, and why America is good for business.

Every once in a while, a news story comes out that shows bravery and courage in the business world. That does not happen all that often, so when it does, I like to talk about it. I am talking about the story of the Chinese tennis player that has gone missing and what that means for China’s upcoming Olympic games.

Socrates was a Greek philosopher. Most people have heard the name Socrates, but most people do not know the story about why he is so famous. Socrates was put to death by his own community for speaking the truth. If you have not heard this story before, you will want to hear this because it is shocking.

Today I wanted to talk about Ayn Rand, who was a philosopher and writer. If you have grown up in the US or gone to business school, you have probably been exposed to her writings which have greatly influenced business in America today. Her ideas are hotly debated, and so I am going to share my thoughts on Ayn Rand.

Today I am going to be talking about the “Great Reset” and this idea has been widely criticized as a conspiracy theory. It is not often that we get conspiracy theories about accounting and finance, so I think it will be helpful to take a closer look and try and figure out what it all means.

Something that I have found to be helpful as a businessperson is meditation. I have been using meditation for about 20 years, and I wanted to share with you what I have learned from that experience. There are a lot of videos about meditation on YouTube that drive me nuts. They talk in riddles with all this flowery language, and no one gets to the point and just tells you how to meditate. So, this is a no-nonsense explanation of meditation and how it is going to help you in business.

This week I wanted to talk about murder and accounting. In fact, I want to talk about the oldest murder mystery in our culture. I am talking about the story of Cain and Abel. This story is not only told in the Bible in the Christian and Jewish religions. It is also written in the Quran in Islam. So this is a very influential story throughout the world and there is an important lesson for accounting that a lot of people miss.

In current events we have recently seen the removal of US troops from Afghanistan. I made a whole video on this, you can check it out on the channel. But one of the main takeaways was that the new Taliban government is deciding right now whether to make debt illegal. Historically, issuing loans and charging interest is illegal under Sharia law. Over the last 20 years, the US has helped set up banks and has been issuing loans. The Taliban is deciding whether to shut it all down. People in the US are confused watching this, because we are so used to debt being a normal part of life. But people forget, there was a point in time in Western culture where debt was also illegal. So we are going to take a look at what happened and, specifically, what changed our minds. We are going to talk about the history of debt.

Today we are talking about the collapse of the banking system in Afghanistan. No one really knows what is going on at this point, but I have tried to gather all the information reported in the news and put it in one video. Whenever there is an economic crisis going on in the world that is this dramatic, I think it is important to try and figure out what happened and gain a better understanding of the situation.

Sorry for being so blunt in this video, but I felt this was important. The world economy is in pretty rough shape. There are a lot of people struggling right now. You might be one of those people. So a lot of people are asking “Why do I have money problems? What is the reason?” And there are a lot of people out there giving explanations. I see a lot of videos on YouTube these days about politics, saying that it is politician’s fault for destroying the economy. I see a lot of videos on evil corporations, saying that it is their fault they are not paying their workers enough. Now to be honest, there is a lot of blame to go around, but what I want to focus on in this video is that it is not the politician’s fault, it is not the evil corporation’s fault, it is YOUR fault. You are the source of your money problems.

This week we are going back to basics, and in this video, I will tell you the two ways to solve any money problem. This is an idea I talk about in my book “The Young Person’s Guide To Money.” You can buy this on Amazon. You can find the link on my website WolvesAndFinance.com. I made it super cheap. It is short easy to read. And I wrote this because I wanted to get basic money ideas out to young people today, because this is stuff they are not teaching you in schools and can change your life.
What we are talking about today is one of the central concepts about money. If you understand this idea, it will help you so much in life and in business. The idea is this: Money problems are simple.

In this video we are going to talk about the CFO role, and how it changes based on the organization. What I want to do is talk through each type of CFO to give you a better understanding of what activities you would perform in a CFO role.
CFOs will tend to fall into three different categories: Financial, Operational, and Compliance.

This is a really deep video so get ready to think. This is something people do not usually talk about. Most people think money is great. What is the problem? I need more money! That attitude is ignoring very big money problems that you are going to face in your life and business career. So in this video, we are going to talk about the money paradox.

No video this weekend. I will be back next week...

This is something I have learned over the years, and I have found it to be very useful. Never rush a financial decision. This sounds simple, but there are some important reasons why this works. When it comes to decisions about your money you should take time to be thoughtful, do thorough analysis, and negotiate good deals. So few people do this and instead, make hasty decisions, make mistakes, get scammed, and usually waste a lot of money.

One question I get asked a lot is “Should I follow my dream?” It is shocking to me how much I get asked this question. There are a lot of people out there wondering if they should go outside their comfort zone and pursue their passion in life. My answer to this is always “yes” with out hesitation. Of course you should. Go out into the world and follow your dreams. But I say that for a very specific financial reason which I am going to explain to you in this video.

We are going to answer the question “What does a CFO do?” I think this is a question a lot of people have. There is no instruction manual for being a CFO. In business school, there is not even a class on how to be a CFO. Looking at the job from the outside it is not really clear what the job entails. What exactly do they do? We are going to answer that question in today’s video.
An organization will be led by a Chief Executive Officer (or CEO) and then have several Senior managers that report to them. The Chief Financial Officer (or CFO) manages the money for an organization. The CFO must also have a direct link to the board of directors to enable communication about the organization’s finances.
There is an almost endless list of activities that go into managing the money for an organization. It is a very difficult and complex job, but I think all those activities can be summarized into three areas.
• Tasking
• Feedback
• Ethics

Something I do not think they prepare you for in business school is just how hard it is to work in Accounting and Finance. I have been a CPA for six years, and I have worked in business a lot longer before that. So I wanted to share from my experience what makes accounting and finance jobs so difficult.

I talk with a lot of young people. Especially with being on YouTube, I hear stories from a lot of viewers, specifically Millennials. I get this sense that a lot of them are frustrated with their economic situation. I will be honest with you today. Millennials are screwed and we are going to talk about it in today’s video.
