Why Financial Capability has to Be In the Equation
for True Inclusion to Exist

Facilitated in the FPP Zoom Room
Facilitators: Travis Walker and Mike Williams, Realize Now
Inclusion has been proven to be one of the biggest factors in an organization’s mission attainment. If people feel excluded in an organization, productivity suffers.
The same is true in the United States of America.
The wealth gap has caused division and inequity in our society. Division and inequity have also caused and perpetuated the wealth gap. Our society suffers from our inability to come together and bridge the gaps. We have seen it in politics, race relations, as well as gender and faith differences.
Yet it is socioeconomic differences that are the most influential in this nation’s quest for equity and inclusion.
Studies show that one of the top predictors of future wealth is existing wealth within the household and family tree. It is not just the resources, but the Financial Capability knowledge, skill, acumen, and most importantly, access, that make the difference.
When a small fraction of the people in the United States possess a majority of the wealth, the knowledge, skill and acumen are not reaching the masses. And that leads to a result that is less than True Inclusion for our nation.
Travis and Mike say, let’s explore this together!
Travis Walker is a successful Sales Leader. He is a VP-level leader who inspires top-level sales performance in depressed markets. He is known as the “turn around” guy. Every territory he has been asked to take over has been at its most depressed state and he’s had to turn it into a profitable business. He has been responsible for a $200 million dollar balance sheet. He has managed over 1100+ employees, generating over a $1 billion dollars in annual revenue. He has extensive experience in managing outside and inside sales teams, lead generators, and account managers.
He always begins with hiring and retaining top talent. He is a firm believer that if he has the best people, he will win. Once you have the best people, you must train and develop them. Once they are trained and develop, you coach constantly to unlock employee’s maximum potential. Travis preaches daily execution; “Win the day, then win the next and by the end of the month you win the month.” Simple philosophy but it has led to some of the biggest turnarounds at some of the most recognizable brands in the world, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, and Tesla/SolarCity.
Travis is an ICF-certified, trained coach. Travis Walker has a B.S. from Santa Clara University, one of the best universities in the world; and earned his JD from a top-25 law school, the University of Illinois-Champaign Urbana. He is a published writer. The accomplishment he is most proud of is being a father of 3 and a loving husband.
Travis Walker’s true value is his almost 15 years of sales and leadership knowledge and experience. He is a team-builder and a profit magnet. He brings a diverse way of thinking that allows him the ability to unlock the potential of the employees around him.
Michael Williams is a Licensed Marriage and Family therapist. He has over 16 years of experience working in Mental Health and Social Services. He has a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Organization Psychology from Saint Mary’s College of California and a Master’s Degree in Counseling at the University of San Francisco.
He’s held leadership positions in community-based and county governmental organizations. He also has been trained as a Professional Certified Coach while working through accreditation through the International Coaching Federation (ICF).
He has a huge passion for supporting individuals/children/ families to experience success. He has an equal level of passion for supporting leaders to develop and achieve their vision of success as leaders. Helping others identify their vision of success is an art form which he views as an honor to walk side by side with those experiencing a lull.
