Precious’ Situation

I am currently working on receiving a Bachelor’s degree in Finance. Since I was a child I have been fascinated with currency. I am a very ambitious person. I love to push myself outside of my comfort zone because it allows me to see the various task I am capable of. I thrive in any environment and I transform unexpected obstacles into stepping stones for achievements. I always have my eye on the target, I set goals and I accomplish them. I can unite people around a vision and motivate a team to excellence. I expect no more from the others than what I expect from myself.

You can save over $1,000 in one year starting with only $1

Saving money should not feel like paying a bill! Often time’s people discourage themselves during their saving process because they’re trying to do too much too soon. Saving money to reach your goals should be fun and attainable not a strain on your finances. A fun saving method that I currently use is the “52-week money challenge”. This challenge requires you to save the dollar amount of each week until you reach the end of the year. For example during week one you would deposit $1 into your savings account. During week two you would deposit $2 into your savings account. During week 52 you would deposit $52 into your savings account. At the end of the year you will have $1,378 in your savings account. Throughout this entire challenge the most you will take out of your wallet is $52!
