There are several common misconceptions about generating wealth. For example, many people believe that becoming an expert in one skill will set them up for success, when in reality, having multiple skills under your belt will give you a unique portfolio that is more desirable to employers and customers.

Additionally, too many young people let thousands of dollars go to waste by sitting in a savings account. In today’s economy, investing is necessary to generate lasting wealth.

Hala’s wide range of desirable skills led her to organically start and grow YAP Media and she interviews top investing experts on YAP, so she was invited to speak on the Young Money with Tracey Bissett podcast.

Tracey is the founder and Chief Financial Fitness Trainer of Bissett Financial Fitness Inc., where she educates and empowers individuals, notably young people, to take control of their finances with confidence. She has worked with thousands of individuals and entrepreneurs to secure the financing they needed.

Hala appeared on Young Money with Tracey Bissett to talk about how to set yourself up for financial success by diversifying your skill set and making smarter decisions with your money.
