Why Renegade?

We're shamelessly counter-cultural. We don't believe in keeping up with the Joneses. We don't believe in living in houses we never really own. We don't believe money should ever ruin marriages, families, or friendships. We don't believe that money can buy happiness.

What we do believe in, however, is doing this money thing radically different. Whether you're a billionaire or a hundredaire, you can make peace with your money, and chart a new course for where you're headed.
