My name is Andy and this is my story.
Since growing up as a kid, I have always been fascinated with money. I was that 8-year-old introverted kid playing online games on a daily basis, not excelling in class, but had a deep passion for earning money online. I dealt with trauma, I grew out of it, and learn to become the better version of myself every day.
This is the story of how it all began.
In the 1990s, my grandparents immigrated to the United States. They were scraping by to survive. In other words, they collected cans, never ate out, and never had the opportunity to enjoy themselves. Without them, I wouldn’t have been here typing this out. I wouldn’t have had a proper education. I wouldn’t be who I am today if it weren’t for them.
Life wasn’t easy. I grew up as a kid during the United States recession. It impacted my life in many ways unimaginable. My family lost their house, we moved from place to place, and I was constantly switching schools. Part of the reason why becoming friends with someone is tough for me is because I moved a lot. Part of the reason why we moved a lot was because of money.
I moved ten different times. I remembered all of my schools like it was yesterday. It was Cortada, Excelsior, Marshall, Baden Powell, Hansen, Dale, Stacey Clegg, McGarvin, La Quinta, and Los Amigos. Throughout my life, having money instead of friends was my priority. As bad as it may seem, I had to somehow help my family.
Where there is darkness, there is light. I grew up with two little sisters and a teacup poodle. While we struggled, we managed to get by because we had each other. In high school, I joined community service clubs, I became depressed, I made new friends, and became heartbroken. It was a typical teenage life.
Fast-forward many years later, I attended college. Between 18 to 22 years old, I learned many valuable lessons. I worked on my networking skills. I met successful people and people that are financially struggling. Every person has a story to share and there is always something to learn.
Throughout this phase, I hardly had any money in my bank account. I took advantage of any opportunities given to me. I got scammed, my car was stolen twice, and I lost track of who I was. While I could probably write my life in a novel, I’ll keep it short for you. Within the last three years, I’ve been merely focused on saving and making money online. I’ve built many good habits and improved myself as a person overall.
I’ve gained many valuable knowledge and lessons from my experience/friends that I’m going to share with you. My name is Andy and this is my story.
