From $47,000 in Debt to Financial Independence ft. Candice Marie – PB91
2 days ago
Today Candice Marie has a positive net worth, savings, investments and paid off over $47,000 in debt! This wasn't the case just six years ago when she didn't want to check her net worth because she knew it was in the negatives. While some of us worry about living paycheck-to-paycheck, Candice had to get use to a no-check-to-no-check lifestyle after struggling for years to find steady work after graduating college. Rather than get discouraged, she used this as an opportunity to become self-taught about personal finance. She began sharing her experiences through Young Yet Wise. The network she built and stories she shared there helped motivate her to stay on track and learn more about smart money management. She joins Paychecks & Balances this week to give you realistic tips for reaching your own financial goals.

everything they should of taught us in school
listen man thank yall from the bottom of my heart. You guys have put me on to so many things in regards to career advice that has literally changed my life. as a 1st generation american/ college grad there was no mentor or anyone to give a road map on what to expect after school. everything from investing in retirement to just basic convos on office politics. yall cover all aspects of it from a black male perspective that you cant find anywhere else. Again thank you and keep up the good work
