“The best financial advice I have ever gotten is [that] I shouldn’t make material things a necessity for me. I’ve always been told that I need to get financial support in making my own finances and become my own financial support for myself and my future,”
“Instead of looking into cars and trying to wear the fancy clothes and all that, I was actually advised not to make those things my own necessities at any point in time. I just need to make a proper foundation for myself.”
“The best investment that I have made is real estate. I try to get into real estate, and it’s not big, but it’s small, and it’s coming on gradually. At least I can say that I have one or two properties that are coming up.
