Equipping you with the tools you need to succeed.
With the recent trend in online shopping, it can be hard to tell which e-commerce website is legitimate and which is not. Customers tend to be more skeptical and tend to avoid sites that belong to smaller businesses with less popularity.
(.......2009-2010 and on.......) So, in 2009 I was still in high school. It was my last year of high school and I decided to take an art class and music as well. When I was in the art class I discovered that I really enjoyed drawing, painting came later. I really liked the colors that I could put on paper. I really liked the fact that I was creating something meaningful. But most of all I really liked the fact that I was making something totally original.

5 Months and 5 days ago I began my journey as a writer on Vocal. I’ve now officially made my first $5 from views (+$1,250 from challenges)! Seems like I’ve found my lucky number. Submitting an article on Vocal, was also my first time releasing my written work anywhere in public. Which now that I think about it, is kind of funny considering that my first posted piece, Follow Your Intuition is not something which represents the type of work I would normally put out there. It was a piece I had written for the Mindful Strides challenge - by the way challenges are my favourite feature of this wonderful platform! I had originally joined Vocal as a Vocal+ member when I saw a call on Instagram for submissions to the challenge 24/7 Diner. I never actually ended up entering that challenge but I am so glad I found Vocal. I’ll share with you a bit about what I’ve learned in my first few months and what it has meant to a “new writer” to have a platform to share my voice and have a community to support me. Emotional, mental and (BONUS!) financial support!

When I downloaded the Stash app for beginner investors a few weeks ago, I didn’t know the first thing about the stock market. In my last article, I shared how I began my journey of educating myself about investing by simply using the only tool I knew at the time: Googling search terms to learn about popular picks, and finding my way to experts who knew more than I did. From there, I began trying the in-app learning tools Stash offers, and that’s where things started to get really exciting.
