Brent Hines is the co-founder and Chief Development Officer of the educational non-profit, Foundation for Financial Wellness. The Foundation’s mission is to improve people’s lives by empowering them with the knowledge and the motivation to take control of their financial lives. The Foundation’s curriculum is rooted in the principles of Behavioral Finance which makes every class topic taught by the Foundation unique, innovative, and extremely valuable.
Brent’s vision has led to the expansion of the Foundation’s curriculum, delivery, and effectiveness. Some of today’s most popular class topics are budgeting, debt elimination, insurance, investments, retirement, taxes, and life & legacy planning.
Brent regularly delivers keynote addresses on behalf of The Foundation for Financial Wellness, bringing motivational presentations to corporations, workforce boards, churches, groups, and associations offering real-world financial solutions to thousands of individuals and the organizations of which they are members.
Part of what makes Brent’s message so powerful is his personal story of having nothing, to having it all, to losing it all and his eventual climb out of the pile of ashes he had been responsible for creating himself. Regardless of what stage or age of life your attendees may be in, Brent creates connection, relatability, and hope. Allow Brent to share his hard-earned lessons in what financial wellness really means and how attainable it really is.

The power of what the Foundation for Financial Wellness delivers, is rooted in the holistic, or whole-person approach of a timeless principle called Be – Do – Have.
Most all financial education or literacy is based in Having the head knowledge of finance. However, education without action is of little value…it is the financial behaviors, the habits, or the Doing, that puts that head knowledge into play. And lastly, the secret to understanding what drives those healthy financial habits, can be found in the six inches between our ears…our relationship with money, or the way we are Being, often comes from the scripts, tapes or records we inherited from the authoritative figures in our lives.
Total wellbeing looks at the whole person. Financial wellness is no different in that there is not a dimension in our lives that is not directly impacted by our financial reality.
