Jedidiah Collins CFP® is a former NFL player, Amazon best-selling author, podcaster, and adjunct professor at Washington State University who after being cut 12 times became the #1 Fullback in the NFL. He took many principles and behaviors away from the game of football but was also faced with the reality of how unprepared he was for the financial opportunity of professional sports. This dilemma drove him to study for his Certification in Financial Planning® while he was still playing in the NFL.
Transitioning away from football, Jed knew he would pursue real life experience with his CFP® and went to work in Wealth Management. Although a great career, Jed quickly discovered helping the wealthy was not his passion. His passion was delivering financial wellness workshops for those at the beginning of their financial journey, not the end.
The Money Vehicle workshops, best-selling book Your Money Vehicle, and virtual course are on a mission to empower young professionals how to U.S.E. money (Understand, Strategize, Efficient).
Jed is a passionate advocate for greater financial awareness and has worked closely with countless individuals in the hope they begin to own their financial futures.
Jed received his BS, Accounting, from Washington State University in 2008, a BMEP Real Estate certificate from The Wharton School in 2013, and a Business Management and Entrepreneur certificate from Harvard Executive in 2012.
