75 - How To Get Rich By Starting A Charity

September 23, 2021

Hello Everyone and welcome to the Main St Finance Podcast. Today I get a little morbid with where your donations are going. In this episode, I go through the steps that some people take to get rich by starting their own charity. This is a despicable practice that I intend to bring to light through this episode. It is my hope that this episode will make you research the charities and non-profits you donate to to ensure that your dollars are being spent on the cause, and not lining the founder’s pockets.
