For the 2014 MoneySmarts conference, we were thrilled to present Michel B. Rubin, founder of Total Candor, LLC as our keynote presenter.

Author of the bestseller Beyond Paycheck to Paycheck and The Savings Solution, Michael is a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) and a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional. In addition to his experience providing sophisticated financial advice to affluent clients, Michael has been a key source of information for over a decade to countless others. He speaks passionately about and provides guidance on virtually all personal financial planning topics.

Michael has appeared in various media, including radio and TV stations across the country, plus national media such as CNN Money.com, latimes.com, The Wall Street Journal, SmartMoney.com, Chicago Tribune, Financial Advisor Magazine, and Investment News.

Prior to founding Total Candor LLC, Michael worked in the personal financial services practices of two of the former “Big Six” accounting firms. Subsequently working for several years as a new venture executive for Toys “R” Us, Inc., he made sure that he never actually grew up. He holds an undergraduate business degree from the Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan and an MBA from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University. He is also the Chief Operating Office and Chief Financial Officer of Sleepnet Corporation in Hampton.
