  1. It is time for someone to speak out about how to educate consumers about money management and create awareness on financial education programs on a wide range of topics such as budgeting, retirement savings and using credit wisely.

    The advantage on having this is that, if you’re not a techy person and have no time to RSS, download podcast or listen to audiobooks, you still get the chance to get educated live on the radio by Matthew Sapaula while you’re on your way to work or even to a party by simply tuning in your car’s radio… a very good way of combining both traditional and new age media.

  2. Judith says:

    If a firm employs an increasing majority of the population are driven solely to satisfy the owner’s greed at the expense of working conditions, of the stability of the community, and of the health of the environment, chances are that the quality of our lives will be worse than it is now. Having the opportunity to hear Matthew Sapaula on radio and having seen him on his TV interviews, I would say that it is time for a Samaritan to come up an speak out for what can be beneficial and practical for most of us who may need guidance in terms of financial coping…

  3. Margarett says:

    Many business leaders are asking fundamental questions about what business they’re in, why they are doing it and how it can be used as a means of healing human and natural communities…Why? because this is the main source of making life worth it… And this is what I appreciate about this radio show and website… practical, realistic and honest service to individuals who appreciates great quality of living…
