What is one of your favorite things that you’ve been able to do with your money?
My most favorite thing I’ve been able to do with money is that I learned early on that you can get your money to work for you if you have a plan and execute it. Realizing that compounding was an awesome concept, I began investing every month putting initially small amounts to work. Today those initially piddling amounts have grown to provide an enviable cash flow that allows me to live well and give to worthy causes.
