When I first committed to this challenge, I was overly ambitous. It turns out that attending school full-time, and working part-time doesn't leave a lot of room to do research and write a full post every day.
With this said, I have adjusted to challenge to a 52 financial intelligence challenge. This will allow me a whole week to put together a valuable post.
Behind most big life commitments is a motivating force, a big why. To provide context and help you gain a deeper understanding of my big why in regards to this challenge, I must tell you a bit about myself.
I was born and raised in a small town in Southern Utah. I’m the oldest of five kids, and grew up very poor. I know it’s not that different from a lot of people. What is different however, is how much effort, dedication, and determination I used to get myself out of such a debilitating upbringing.
