In May of 2020, I was featured in my first ever published article with Business Insider. In this post, I’m going to share my 3 favorite financial tips that helped me become a millionaire before I turned 30.

Today, I’m 32, and I’m now actually a multi-millionaire! No matter your financial goals, I promise these strategies will have you on your way to financial freedom.

The next bullet point talks about my multiple streams of income. I think this is something that has truly changed my life and has forced me to think in an entrepreneurial fashion. I knew that my job at the call center wasn’t going to make me any more money; it wasn’t a sales job and my raise probably only be 1%.
