#56 - Eric Arnold, Co-Founder and CEO of Planswell
Join in for a conversation with Eric Arnold, Co-Founder and CEO of Planswell. Planswell is a fintech company based in Toronto that is a one-stop shop for financial information and advice to Canadians. On his journey of starting Planswell Eric had nine other businesses. His entrepreneurial push started early with a desire to make $100,000 as a young teenager and a school environment where he constantly felt misunderstood propelled him down this path. We explore what this $100,000 goal meant for Eric, how it propelled him on his entrepreneurial journey, the key learnings he had from each venture, going without a mentor, proving naysayers at his financial job wrong, and the financial roller coaster of building Planswell. I mean, will you rack up $250K in personal credit card debt to not miss your own team's payroll? Eric has focused on creating a transparent company where he values inclusivity for his people as we discuss not only his journey but philosophy on creating a company for his people.
