David Jenkins is a strategic and visionary business leader, and the author of TheAnswerIs -- an education and informative website inspired by his daughters and designed to provide young people with the basic knowledge about investing and finance. Dave was the former President and member of the Board of Directors of Canada’s most prominent independent real estate valuation company as well as the former COO at one of Canada’s most innovative industrial companies. With his rich experience and wisdom, he freely shares his knowledge on the website and by accepting speaking engagements at universities, businesses, and communities.
David joins me to share how he uses his website to educate young people about finances and investing. He explains why he uses short stories and examples in explaining investment concepts, the common missteps of a new investor, and why the Sensitivity Analysis is an essential tool especially for those who are considering investing their money. He also shares some inspiring success stories, including that of his mother’s -- how she, being a widow, raised all of her sons and managed to leave something for them even after she was gone.
“When I was young I was motivated purely by money. I was swinging for the fences with my investments and there was no end in sight to the ways I could lose money.” - David Jenkins
