Story

Unlike some of my peers over here at Odyssey, I grew up comfortably as I never had to worry about money. Any opportunities to go for sports camps, extra enrichment and yearly holidays were well funded for. While I was not necessarily very rich, my family had a wealth of happiness, with a large part of it attributed to having good financial habits, especially my parents setting aside a savings plan to fund for my sister’s and my own college education.

All my life, I took money for granted and often wondered why some of my peers were stingy over their expenditure and scrimped and save every penny at every opportunity.

However, as I grew up, I slowly understood that while I may have led a comfortable life, many of my other peers were not blessed as I was.

While serving NS, I had the opportunity to engage with my men under my charge who came from challenging family background. While they were brilliant honest chaps, many came from broken families who lived on every dollar they earned to get by. Some of them had to work to support their families while schooling which took a lot of attention away from their studies. Eventually, some of them dropped out of school and spiraled into an inferiority complex, having the mindset that a “Junior College” person like myself can’t really understand their position.

Even in University, I’ve had some friends who refused to come back home because their parents quarreled over family finances and several others who turned down exchange offers because they couldn’t afford it.

This was when I started thinking deeply about the root cause of all of these problems and realized that money wasn’t the root cause of evil, but rather the lack of it was. Looking back, things might have turned out quite differently for the people I care for if their family planned their finances properly.

I met Don, who is my current mentor, at a conference Odyssey was sponsoring for when I was a photographer for the event. Back then, I had fears and apprehensions about the industry as it has traditionally been painted in a very bad light but Don showed me that if we uphold our values and serve professionally with our hearts, we will be able to impact the lives of the ones closest to us.

Having understood the importance and power of Financial literacy, I took it upon my personal mission to arm the people whom I am closest with and care deeply about with new knowledge. With proper planning, I believe that even the most disadvantaged of people can achieve financial success and lead a comfortable, well protected lives so that they can focus on family, relationships and pursuing their dreams and aspirations.

I am Kenny and I am here to guide and protect your family and loved ones through this journey.
