MONEY MATTERS with Christopher Hensley

On this weeks show we answered the question how does one make good financial decisions in a world dominated by risk and uncertainty. We discussed the book The Power of Choice which is dedicated to the idea that each of us has a choice to better our lives, empower ourselves and reach our goals.
