Formerly a fee-only financial adviser, Bielagus travels the globe delivering keynote addresses and workshops at colleges, corporations, independent schools and the military, even giving talks on military ships at sea. He has spoken in Europe, Japan, South Korea, Central America, the Middle East and in 49 of the 50 states.

Bielagus is the author of three books on personal finance and entrepreneurship. He has been featured in the Wall Street Journal and USA Today and has appeared on PBS and in other media.
