Rick August, Ph.D., is a single dad with two children. In his late 30s, he returned to university and earned a doctorate degree. After five years working 60 to 80 hours a week as a professor, he realized he’d become what world-renowned financial expert Robert Kiyosaki dubbed “the educated poor.”
After a decade, August reluctantly returned to his former job. Financially desperate and going through a divorce, he retreated to truck driving. After reading a book titled “Increase your financial IQ,” he found the inspiration to turn an idea into an asset. Smart Drive Test’s YouTube channel serves as the focal point for his successful online driver education business.
