Intro to Piggy Banks to Wall Street Video with Raad Ghantous
Shortly after our book was published in 2019, Raad reached out to J. J. to be a guest on The Raad Life.
The two quickly became friends, and eventually Raad convinced J. J. to put his own show together.
They were meeting for coffee one day in their mutual hometown of San Clemente, CA, and Raad showed up with a golden microphone and a green screen to give one final push.
We are incredibly grateful to Raad for his support in all of our endeavors!! THANK YOU RAAD!!
