I am my own worst enemy. Anxiety, who is so kin to me. She’s always there, too much to bare. She sits on my chest, establishing her nest.
How I Met the Love of My Life
There are few very distinct memories in my life. I remember the moment I learned to ride a bike, and to swim. I remember my first day of school. I remember these things so vividly. I remember the moment I fell in love. It was overwhelmingly and blissful at the same time. Similar to the first night I was in her presence.

How to Boost Your Income in College

The Road to Riches
I have always wanted to be rich. When I was little, I would fantasize about all the glamour that comes with money. As I grow older, it centers around the freedom to travel and the ability to take care of my family. I didn’t begin to develop a plan for building wealth until I was 19 years old.

I no longer wanted to slave away climbing the corporate ladder for a chance at the next pay bracket. I wanted to make money in my sleep. I wanted to make a genuine impact on my loved ones' lives and escape the stress of living below my means. So, like every hopeful entrepreneur, I got on YouTube and researched someone like me who started from nothing and they gave a step by step tutorial on how they did it.
