Welcome! This corner of the World Wide Web is run by me, Paco. It exists to teach you all about finances and business.
I want to share what we've learned because I believe being able to understand your financial life can be really rewarding. Knowing where you are and where you're going can help you relax and allow you to focus on what really matters to you.
If it’s your first time here, I know all of the information can be overwhelming, so I've created this page, with some of our my best resources, to get you started.
I started The Hell Yeah Group because I grew very disenchanted and skeptical of how the people in the financial services industry made money. I believe the business model is flawed. Most financial services is surrounding investment advice or involves selling you a financial product (like an annuity or life insurance policy). And as the saying goes, when your only tool is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.
Being on the inside of banks and investment firms, I've seen sales people do fucked up things like convince innocent people to make bad investments because the commission check. I've had clients who got totally screwed because they thought they were doing the right thing.
But the other side of that coin is, why don't these people know more about finance?
So I started this company to serve a community and bridge the gap.
