My name is Charles Thomas. I am a Certified Financial Planner™
and founder of Intrepid Eagle Finance. We work with Christian families on their journey to financial freedom.
The first time I ever taught someone about finance was on a school trip to a roller skating rink when I was in the fifth grade. I spent the bus ride teaching a classmate about the value of saving. My career has been spent around the same basic premise: help others to be wise with their finances.
I have been working with people and their money for over 17 years of my career. I have had experience at global financial firms in a wide variety of roles. This diverse experience has included everything from helping people who just received their first paycheck to counseling millionaires in the financial crisis to helping large corporations provide retirement plans for their employees.
I completed a double major at Appalachian State University and hold bachelor degrees in Music and Marketing. I later earned an MBA at the University of South Carolina's Moore School of Business.
I started Intrepid Eagle Finance to serve a community I believe has unique needs. Christian families face the challenge of balancing the needs of Mom and Dad, children, work, church and other things craving resources. The financial component of this difficult balancing act can be stressful to harmonize for this kind of family. How do I know this? My family is part of this group too! Balancing Biblical beliefs with finances can be challenging at times, but it is possible.
That's why I started Intrepid Eagle Finance to offer help as a Christian financial advisor. I spend my days helping families like mine who value things like Faith, Family, and Freedom. I help families to find financial freedom while honoring what is important for today and the future. As a faith-based financial planner, this is the driving force behind how I help families find balance in their financial life.
One of my passions is financial literacy for all ages. My time on this endeavor is spent volunteering, public speaking, and helping create materials to help folks learn more about managing their finances. I also help media outlets, from the perspective of a Christian financial guy, to educate the public. Some of the publications I have been quoted in include Forbes, Bloomberg, U.S. News and World Report, and Business Insider.
I am an advocate of independent education and homeschooling. My wife and I are active supporters of helping others get started and find success with their own homeschool journey.
When I am not working with other families on faith-based financial planning, I spend time with my own family. My wife Amy and I make our home in South Carolina with our three children. Our family is active in our homeschool each day where we work hard and play hard. We spend our breaks on time outdoors, playing music, traveling, and serving our church family.
