Why Are Most People Struggling With Money?

Did you know that 78% of Americans live paycheck to paycheck?


It’s a very stressful situation that you want to avoid at all costs. 


What does this tell us about today’s society? Do most people only live in the now? Or are people just living above their means?  Or is it simply due to a lack of knowledge about money? 

Probably all of the above.


Money is a complex topic. You need to learn how to make money, you need to learn how to grow your money, you need to learn how to budget, you need to learn where to invest and so much more.


This lack of education, however, is not your fault. In fact, it’s not anybody-who-struggles-with-money’s fault. School just doesn’t teach that stuff. Isn’t that crazy?

They won’t even teach you how to make a simple budget.

Money is definitely a sensitive subject. So much so that most schools’ don't even teach it. 

The good news is you’re still young and there is time! But you have to start learning about money now. Three quarters of Americans cite money as the leading cause of stress in their lives. Let’s make sure you’re not part of that group. 

I graduated from College with two money-related degrees, accounting and business. Yet, I felt like I wasn’t equipped with the right knowledge to face the real world. So my real education started after I graduated. That’s when I started studying money, credit, the economy and real estate.


Fast forward a few years later, after starting from scratch, I now have more than $1 million dollars worth of real estate, 100,000$ of available credit, and I am able to travel the world for free with my credit points. All of that at 24 years old!

Now, my goal is to help you live up to your full potential.

I want to help you reach financial freedom too.

Every little choice you make today will have a huge impact on where you will be in a few years. These choices today will be the difference between struggling and living your best life. Will you be part of the 78% who live paycheck to paycheck? Or will you be part of the few who live free of financial stress?


One way to avoid being a part of the majority of the U.S. who can't cover a $400 emergency expense is with credit cards. Most beginner credit cards will give you a limit of at least $500. Having this on the sidelines in case of an emergency can the the difference between overcoming an unfortunate situation or suffering because of it.

My goal is to help you learn the truth about money that school didn't teach you, including credit cards. Each week you will receive my best tools, resources, news and promotions that will help you reach your financial goal.
