We're On a Mission to End Financial Stress
You’ve probably wondered if your finances were redeemable, if you could ever get out of debt, or if there was more you could be doing with the money you do have.
The answer is YES. Yes, you can!
With the right tools, you can do it. We know because we have been there. We know what it feels like to be overwhelmed, confused, and even terrified by finances. That is why we are passionate about giving hard-working people like you the education and one-on-one guidance you need to remove financial stress from your home and your future.
We’ve helped over 53,000 families become financially literate, unbury themselves from debt, and make the most of their income.
Take control of your finances and change your future.
Success for Every Family
We believe every hard-working family deserves financial peace of mind.
Join our movement!
Helping families achieve financial success is our passion, as lived by our founder and CEO, Alan Akina. From a humble background himself, Alan has devoted his life and career to this ambition, developing an effective curriculum, mentoring individuals, and writing a best-selling book, The Super Duper Simple Book on Money, to move this crusade forward.
Alan’s passion for teaching finances has had a great impact: he was awarded the Community Leader Award by Bank of Hawaii for putting thousands of families on the path to success and was also the go-to financial expert for over 8 years on Fox News KHON2.
101 Financial combines Alan’s expertise and a system that works with the personalized help so many people need and want. Ultimately, what drives the company forward is the belief that everyone deserves to live their best life and that being financially literate empowers you to do so.
