Where it all started
The year 2020 will be remembered for many events, but for Grant, it was a year dedicated to improving his personal finances. He spent countless hours devouring books, podcasts, and YouTube videos to learn the tips, tricks, and hacks to attain a debt-free, early retirement full of passive income. However, after a year and a half of studying, he realized that the principles of financial literacy are simple, yet often overlooked in education.
Motivated to change this, he set out in August 2021 to create a unique educational platform for financial literacy, distinct from existing curriculums. Around the same time, he became involved in Houston's startup scene.
In January 2022, Grant took a leap of faith and committed to full-time startup life. After testing and refining various ideas, he landed on a video game as the ideal platform to teach financial literacy. And now, today, he has achieved his vision.
Where we are today

Additionally, EYF plans to develop new features and content for its platform, to ensure that it remains engaging and relevant for its users. With its innovative approach to financial education, EYF is well on its way to becoming a leader in the field of financial literacy.
