There’s a big misconception about money. So often we hear that money is the root of all evil. At the end of the day though, we all need it to pay our bills. Money itself is just a thing, and it’s all about how you choose to use that thing. Money itself can’t be evil, because it’s just an idea. When you have money, it allows you more opportunities and freedom. More money means you have more chances to help, give back, and achieve growth.

On this episode of Creative Warriors we are joined by Vincent Pugliese. Vincent has a Bachelor Degree in Communication from Ohio University, where he was named National Champion for the William Randolph Heart Photojournalism Championship prior to graduation.
