What’s the one piece of money advice you wish everyone would follow and why?
I wish everyone would explore their interests and start a side hustle that will eventually bring in additional income. Instead of splurging or blowing through that additional income, use it in one of three ways. 1. Reinvest in your side hustle to grow it even further, 2. Invest in courses that will help you grow your business, 3. SAVE as much as you can.
