My story of Finding the Truth about Personal Finance
I grew up in a small Southern town located in South Carolina. In our household, it was considered rude to talk about money. Especially someone’s personal finances. If you had questions, you were considered nosy. If you wanted to celebrate a success, you were bragging. But I had a major problem with that.
You see, I was a very curious child. So when I saw someone with a fancy new vehicle or brand new home, I needed more information. I wanted to know what they did for living. How much money does this person make per year? Do they have a spouse or children? Have they invested any of it? How did they get to this point?
Little did I know, I would learn all about this aspect in College! Thus, my love for all things personal finance began. And now that I’ve studied it and begun applying it to my life, I want to pass this information along to others. Because you may also be just like that curious child that I was, but had no clue where to start!
