Todd Tresidder | Founder
Todd is a former hedge fund manager who didn't want his tombstone to read “His Investment Skills Made His Rich Clients Richer”. The result is he made his advanced investment strategy and wealth planning knowledge publicly accessible through this web site to help normal people achieve extraordinary financial results.
The founding premise behind Financial Mentor is that quality financial education must be separated from the financial advice and investment product sales functions to eliminate conflicts of interest and hidden bias. That's why Financial Mentor is a pure financial education web site.
Todd is the bestselling author of 6 books and the Expectancy series of master courses teaching you how to achieve financial freedom so you can lead a more fulfilling life (because life is about experiences, not stuff).
When Todd isn't writing you'll find him reading a wide variety of books, adventure traveling, playing extreme sports, or hanging out with his family. You can get to know the personal side of Todd here, and you can find a formal bio for Todd here.

In 2017, David sold Money Under 30 to Webpals Finance, Ltd. in a multi-million-dollar deal.
After taking some time off to enjoy financial independence and travel with his family, David partnered with Todd in 2019 to oversee Financial Mentor's financial advice and expand the site's content in order to help more readers in more areas of their financial lives.
David lives with his family near Portland, Maine, which is a pretty great place to be.
