Promoting Youth Financial Literacy: Toronto Star Highlights M5V's Sherard McQueen's Work

We are thrilled to announce that our very own Founder, Sherard McQueen, and Build Up Dev Co-Founder, Priscilla Facey, were recently featured in a comprehensive article by the Toronto Star. The article provides an intimate look into McQueen's early experiences with credit and his inspiring journey into becoming a successful real estate developer and co-founder of M5V Developments.

The Toronto Star details the compelling work Sherard and his partner, Priscilla Facey, are doing, drawing from over 30 years of combined real estate and finance experience to teach crucial financial literacy and management skills to students. These are lessons they both wish they'd learned during their own high school years.

In the article, Sherard shares personal anecdotes about his first credit card experiences and how they shaped his understanding of financial management. Further, he articulates the role these early lessons played in driving his passion for mentoring young people in financial literacy and practical life skills. From maxing out his first credit card in five days to transacting over $1 billion in real estate deals, Sherard's story stands as a testament to the transformative power of financial literacy and education.

We want to express our heartfelt gratitude to the Toronto Star for spotlighting Sherard's remarkable journey and his and Priscilla's critical initiative to educate and empower our youth. We highly recommend our fans and followers give this insightful piece a read to better understand the compelling motivations behind M5V Developments.
