Today, too many grown-ups in the US struggle with their family finances and crushing debt, destroying their ability to support themselves and their children. Statistics reveal that over two-thirds of adults would fail a simple financial literacy test, and more than 47% of American households don’t have $400 on hand to cover an emergency. Following this desolate backdrop, it’s not hard to see that the youth across the United States are growing up ill-equipped to handle their finances.
Unfortunately, many young people do not receive any formal financial instruction and instead learn about money through observing and listening to their parents, caregivers, other adults, and peers. Financial literacy is important in helping the youth successfully manage their money so they can become financially stable, build assets, and attain their personal objectives. It is also worth noting that decisions made in early adulthood can have permanent financial consequences. Bruno Fleuridort is a young Haitian entrepreneur, business mentor, life coach, author, and influencer based in the United States who educates the youth on financial literacy to help them enjoy financial freedom.
Bruno was born in 1991 in Haiti. Growing up with a single mom was difficult for him as she often struggled to provide for him. This prompted him to write his first book, The Truth Behind Single Mom.
The 31-year-old life coach and influencer strongly believe that success is achievable. Thus, from the early age of 14, he began to embrace the world of entrepreneurship. Bruno has always been fascinated by the idea of being an influencer, so he began collaborating with large companies like Pepsi and Goya just a few months after immigrating to the US in 2015. He would later become a brand ambassador and has been discovering his talent and expanding his platform while developing an entrepreneurial mindset.
Bruno is the owner and CEO of the company Bruno Fleuridort Enterprise Inc./Wealth 10.0. His main aim is to help others as much as possible and not make any excuses. He explains, “I put people first. I came from Haiti 6 years ago, learned English from YouTube, and went from living with a negative checking account to becoming financially free. Most importantly, I help and educate financial literacy across the United States.”
The astute go-getter was over the moon when many wealth magazines recognized his platform as the number one wealth academy in the US. However, Bruno shares that it was challenging for him to establish his first business with next to no money. He only had $303 on his credit card but took the risk and invested. The business turned into a million-dollar company a few months later through sheer hard work, resilience, persistence, consistency, and determination.
The entrepreneur shares that his mom is his greatest inspiration. She never gave up despite raising him single-handedly. Although Bruno targets everyone through his ventures, he specifically targets single parents. “I saw my mom struggle, and I understand that single parents need extra help,” he declared.
Bruno’s favorite quote is “0% chance, 100% God,” and he believes that he would never be where he is now if it weren’t for God. He also shares that your current situation or where you came from doesn’t matter; you can accomplish anything you want if you put your mind to it and stay humble. He looks forward to helping millions of families create generational wealth in the next few years.
