Grant Watkins is a native Houstonian serving as Founder and CEO of Earn Your Freedom, a company gamifying financial literacy education. In 2019, Grant was living paycheck to paycheck, struggling to make ends meet, when he realized just how uneducated he was about financial literacy.
Grant spent countless hours studying experts like Dave Ramsey, Robert Kiyosaki, and Ramit Sethi, all the while practicing his languages on Duolingo, which ultimately inspired the creation of EYF. With a background in sales and international business, Grant has experience selling everything from cars, international manufacturing contracts in China, real estate, and more. Grant is multilingual and taught himself the coding languages needed to build EYF: Money Quest.

After her mom’s passing at 17, she was abruptly thrown into the world of finance, making costly mistakes in investing, real estate, and more.
Keely quickly grew a passion for financial education and aims to teach others so they don’t have to make the same mistakes she did, seeing just how impactful financial health is on everyday life. Keely has previously run two small businesses and brings expertise in working with NPOs, operations, business development, and asset management.
