Raised in a low income family, I saw my mom work multiple min-wage jobs, live paycheck to paycheck, sit at the table balancing the checkbook, stressing, hiding the fact that she was crying,. My resulting work ethic and emphasis on career has given me a job I'm excited about daily, an ok salary ( a bit below market rate, yet beyond anything I ever imagined) and my NW has passed $800k.
