My name is Aleise and I am 22 years old. I am originally from Massachusetts, but recently graduated with my Bachelors degree in Mathematics with minors in Business Administration and Management, so I now reside in Tennessee. Five years ago I had no concept of the value of money. I had no idea how to properly manage it. I got involved in a pyramid scheme that left me broke and feeling hopeless. After that incident I promised myself I would never allow myself to get that broke again. I was in college making $300-$400 every two weeks when I developed a habit of saving money, realized the importance of budgeting, began my journey with investing in stocks and most importantly, investing in myself. I not only began to vigorously develop my financial acumen and strategies, but I began to develop in my overall self development as a person. Before I knew it, it didn't matter how small or large my paychecks were because I had now built a habit of being financially responsible with whatever income I had, which allowed me to build up an emergency fund and invest in stocks all before I even graduated college.
In my continuing journey I am learning that my level of self development plays a large role in my successes, finances included. I am developing my mind every day through reading and practicing good habits to catapult me to the next level. Through self study and personal development I am finding potential in myself that I never knew was there. I am influencing people in ways I never thought I could. I started this journey of financial wellness and self development because I was trying to improve myself, but now I am interested in passing on the gems I have learned and implemented for personal success in my own life, so others can experience this joy and fulfillment for themselves.
Thank you so much for being apart of this journey and your continuing support! I cannot wait to be a part of your journey next!
