How I Graduated College Early and Saved $93,845

How I Graduated college early and saved $93,845

A little background about my upbringing… No one in my family had a college degree before I was born. My mom, who was a teen mom, attended college when I was in preschool-elementary school. I remember attending class with her in the HUGE lecture halls during the summer. I could write a whole separate post about the inspiration & experiences I had during those times. My dad also made it a huge priority to focus on my education. We read together all the time so that my reading level was way above my peers, and there were big consequences if I didn’t “exceed expectations” in school. Needless to say, I knew from a very young age I was going to graduate with a Bachelors Degree much earlier than most people. With that being said, here’s how I graduated college early and saved $93,845 before the age of 21. Read more

10 Best Podcasts to Listen to During Your Commute

10 Best Podcasts to Listen to During your Commute

I love listening to podcast! They are so many different podcasts out there and there is a podcast for almost anything you can think of. There are podcasts that about personal development, advice, celebrity interviews, finance tips, random storytelling, true crime stories, and much more. I personally like to mix it up and listen to a variety of podcasts each week. One of the things I love the most about podcasts is everyone can speak their opinion and thoughts freely and be 100% real. I have a 2 hour commute each day (10 hours a week) and I get super motion sick, so unfortunately I can’t do much on the bus. I can’t even look at Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, Youtube, etc.! Thankfully listening to music/podcast doesn’t make me puke. I subscribe to over 25 podcast, but here are the 10 best podcasts in no particular order: Read more
