The Financial Guides were founded by Tammy Johnston, as financial advisors who take a holistic approach to working with their clients. With over 19 years of experience in the financial services industry, Tammy focuses on first educating her clients on how money works and how to ask questions. Through many years of hearing students in the Financial Journeys class ask where were you when I was a kid, and do you have anything that I can use to teach my children, Tammy came up with the concept of Financial Foundations. The first set of four is currently available for ordering with the second set scheduled for late 2012.
As part of their commitment to supporting good works and charity, $10 from the set of every book is going to charity. For direct sales the $10 donation goes to World Vision Canada, Tammy Johnston’s favourite charity. For sales made through charity websites and email mail outs, the money goes to the sending charity.
