A random fact you may not know about me is that my 9-5er consists of working in the investment industry. I’ve actually been in financial services for 10 years now. Time flies!!
Last week, Alicia was featured on my blog doing a guest post on Foods for Fuel. When she approached me about writing a post, I offered to write one for her as well!
I noticed she needed something on the topic of personal finance, so I put on my 9-5er hat, and sent a post her way regarding strategies for saving, and 5 steps to get you started.
Head on over and check it out:
I found out the hard way in college the importance of staying within a budget. I moved out of my parent’s house at the age of 18, worked full-time, and went to college part-time. It seemed like the minute I paid for my tuition the credit card offers started rolling in.
Paying for college, books, supplies, and putting a roof over my head was something I stressed about regularly, and before I knew it, paying for that pizza delivery with my credit card became a way of life.
It’s a trap that can be fallen in to quite easily at a young age………..
