Tommy BrownView Bio
Tommy Brown is the author of the best-selling book The Seven Money Types: Discover How God Wired You to Handle Money. The wisdom he shares in this book was earned as he and his wife, Elizabeth, struggled to pay off a $32,000 debt after they graduated from bible college. They did so within a year and began teaching the principles they learned to others. This marked the beginning of Tommy's exploration of the seven money types he explores in his book. He is also an ordained minister and holds master's degrees in divinity and management. He and Elizabeth reside in North Carolina and have two children.
