I’m Michael McLaughlin, creator of Edspira. I’m a licensed CPA and have a master’s degree in accounting and an MBA.
When I was a teenager, it didn’t look like I’d be able to graduate from high school, much less attend college. When I was 17 I was living on my own in a campground. I worked very hard but struggled to get by, and in the winter I didn’t have heat or running water. I continued plugging away at my education and eventually made it to a PhD at a top-25 university.
I’ve been fortunate to receive an excellent education, so the goal of my life is to share this knowledge with the world. I believe financial and business education should be available to all people—regardless of the country where you happened to be born or how much money you have. That’s why all the content on Edspira is free of charge.
Edspira began as simply a YouTube channel, but it has grown into so much more. My amazing wife Brooke built the Edspira website, which allows you the ability to create a profile, track your progress, and connect with others as you watch videos and complete practice exercises. Our goal is to create a thriving community where people come together to learn, share, and grow. We’re honored to be part of your journey and hope to help you along the way.

Remember, the best investment you can make in life is the one you make in yourself. We believe in you!
