Education is the Key to Financial Planning Success


Chris Longworth has four decades of experience in finance, business and systems implementation. From the time he graduated college, whether he has been assisting clients or helping businesses maximize efficiency, his goal has been to educate. Chris actively seeks out higher learning himself, and that drive transcends his own journey. It has evolved into a love for teaching and service, and he has structured his show around deconstructing misconceptions and answering questions openly and honestly. With each episode, you can learn to employ strategies to fulfill your expectations of your money.

Chris Longworth

Nationally Certified Financial Education Instructor

Chris is a big personality and a veteran in the financial education industry. He’s driven by his love for learning, and his understanding of the educational process has turned him into an incredible teacher to anyone who craves answers. Chris views the current market as predatory, filled with salespeople and advice that tends to be misleading or risky. That’s why he has no desire to be a salesman. He believes in tried-and-true allocation of resources and shepherding clients down the proper path with an emphasis on pushing toward a specific goal. If your goal is to protect your money through retirement to guarantee the quality of life you’re accustomed to, why risk it?

Chris grew up in Southern California and moved to Northern California as a teenager. He received a bachelor’s degree in business from California State University, Sacramento as one of the first members of a community college extension program. He now lives in Anacortes, Washington, which he absolutely adores. Tourists come from around the world to visit his city, but he gets to call it home. He spends his time taking in the combination of Pacific Northwest and island-style life while playing some of the most gorgeous golf courses in the United States. If he’s not behind his desk working to fight financial illiteracy, he is typically enjoying nature on a hiking trail or tending to his garden.
