Eric is a former management consultant to Fortune 500 financial service firms. In 1990, Eric founded a financial counseling firm that worked exclusively on an hourly basis. In addition to his counseling work, Eric also hoped to make an impact in the writing and media fields.

He has spoken at many corporations and nonprofits. His educational background includes having earned his bachelor’s degree in economics at Yale and an MBA at the Stanford Graduate School of Business.
