Hi, my name is Philip Benard, and I am a Father, Husband, Financial Literacy Coach, and Residential Construction Expert. My passions include my family, finance, real estate, investments, and wealth building. I attended the University of Texas Southern University, and I am currently focused on Real Estate Investments. I am also an expert in construction and love the process that goes into fixing, repairing, and growing my community. My mission is to teach the importance of finance, investment, real estate, and self-improvement to our youth, all things I learned through hard work and trial and error. My Experiences can help show students that there is another way other than what society shows as the only options for men and women, usually sports or entertainment, that come from my community. Instead, they can use their own hands to build something beautiful or their minds to create what they dream about. My goal is to help our youth know that there is another way and not just tell them, but physically show them how and lead by example.
