Freelance Corporal with Brandon Childers

Brandon Childers; Veteran On the Move

This week Joe is joined by Marine Veteran and founder of Freelance Corporal, Brandon Childers. Brandon served as a UH-1Y crew chief and after his enlistment entered college ultimately earning his Master of Science in Psychology. It was during his transition, he saw the need to bridge the gap between the veteran community and the resources available to them. Seeing poor money management as one of the challenges facing the military community that later impacts a Veteran’s long term success, Brandon created Freelance Corporal. FreeLCPL is an interactive financial literacy app that helps users not only budget but see how much they can save by the end of their enlistment. Through gamification, users can earn rewards as they work towards their financial goals.  Find out more about Freelance Corporal here.
