Dexter W. Sadler. Founder of DOLLARS WITH SENSE

When he was 18 years old, Mr. Sadler, an innocent bystander, was the victim of a shooting incident which left a 9 mm bullet lodged in his heart. Due to being from a small town in Texas (Mineral Wells) there was no trauma center; luckily a Board Certified Heart Surgeon from India, Dr. J.P. (Janardhanna Penagaluru) Reddy happened to be in town. Dr. Reddy was rushed to the small rural hospital and immediately went to work on this 18-year-old kid who was about to die. He coached a surgical team that had no experience in cardiovascular surgery through a four-and-a-half-hour surgery to remove the bullet from Mr. Sadler’s heart, thereby saving his life.

To this day, Mr. Sadler remains in contact with Dr. Reddy and says, “He is my hero; he saved my life.” Among the myriad of accomplishments and recognitions in thoracic and vascular surgery, Dr. Reddy became the first to establish a Thoracic and Vascular Surgical Specialty in a rural hospital and he practiced there for 50 years.

In 1978 Mr. Sadler earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Business Administration from Bishop College (Dallas, TX) where he was a cadet in the Senior R.O.T.C. program. Upon graduation from college, he was commissioned a Second Lieutenant in the U.S. Army; he became a Combat Veteran and had a successful military career retiring at the rank of Lieutenant Colonel.

In 1988 Mr. Sadler earned a Master of Public Administration Degree from Brenau University (Gainesville, GA), and in 2009 he became a graduate of the Command and General Staff Course at the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College at Fort Leavenworth, KS.

In addition to a successful military career, LTC (Retired) Sadler has over 30 years’ experience as an entrepreneur in the financial services industry where he developed and honed expertise in financial products and services. He later created DOLLARS WITH SENSE, a financial education business, enabling him to use his vast financial knowledge and expertise as a financial educator. Professionally known as “The Money Doctor,” Mr. Sadler continues his life of service to others by teaching Financial Literacy and Wealth Creation Strategies. His goal is to help thousands of families learn how to attain financial success and create generational wealth. He is actively involved in community service as a Life Member of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc., the local chapter of the NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People), and as a Deacon in his church (New Creation Christion Fellowship).

He is also co-founder of a scholarship program that provides financial assistance to qualified students attending Paul Quinn Collage (Dallas, TX). The objective of this program is to ensure that each scholarship recipient, upon completion of all courses and other requirements for graduation, will receive an undergraduate college degree from Paul Quinn College and not have burdensome college debt to carry into their life after graduation.

Mr. Sadler is married to Coretta Lynn Sadler, and he is the proud father of two children – Donielle and Jonathan Sadler. The cornerstone of his success lay in his faith in God, his positive mental attitude, and his determination to succeed.
