What is one of your favorite things that you’ve been able to do with your money?
Having experience with money has allowed me the ability to stay calm when markets are in turmoil. I understand that I can’t control the markets, and I know how to invest. Therefore, I am better able to focus on what is important – spending time with my family and watching my children grow. It has also allowed me the opportunity to volunteer in low income schools helping others become financially literate.
