When I turned fifteen and had my first summer job, an idea popped into my head. I wanted to reach a goal of making $10,000 in high school. For a fifteen-year-old, I did not think it was possible, but I wanted to try. I always knew from a young age that due to the lack […]

Believe it or not, summer can be a really tough time for students to get jobs. Why? Because many employers look at the time frame the student can work (2-3 months), and then turndown student candidates. Why hire a student when there is someone else that would stay around for longer? Heck, it takes 1-2 […]
When Coca-Cola published its figures for the 1st quarter of 2017, there was a distinct lack of buzz. Net income attributable to shareholders declined by 20% to USD 1.18 billion, or 27 cents per share, compared to USD 1.48 billion and 34 cents per share in 2016. The cost of North American bottling operations weighed […]
Since I was a little kid, I had big dreams and a big personality. I always told my parents I was going to be the first female president or the CEO of a big company. My dad always repeats a story about me when I was six to show people that I have always been […]
The summer between my junior and senior year I worked practically nonstop. From July 3rd to August 25th I worked 7 days a week, at least 5 hours a day balancing between an internship and my first job as a lifeguard. On top of that I managed to save money by taking a free math […]
Ever since I was a little kid, I have acted as a mini entrepreneur. After receiving gifts of money for my birthday from relatives, I began to recognize the importance and meaning of money. I was given an electronic bank so that I would be encouraged to save my money, but I had the desire […]
I developed my side hustle at age 12 in the summer of 7th grade. At the time, I started to get really into the “sneakerhead” culture because the kids at my school would always be showing off their shoes. Naturally, I wanted to do more than just fit in so I begged my parents to […]
The first time I discovered the thrill of making my own money I was in fourth grade. I learned how to crochet yarn into small scarves at an after school program and pretty soon I had a whole bunch of them. My dad suggested I try selling them to people at a coffee house we […]
As a young kid, I always looked for ways to make some money anyway I could. It could have been anything like dusting the house, cleaning the cars, or doing dishes. I would make money here and there, and it seemed like a lot for a seven year old kid that had nothing to spend […]
I grew up watching TV shows that always had that one episode where the main characters had a lemonade stand and sold lemonade to all their neighbors. You know what I’m talking about. Anyways, when I was younger I knew I wanted to make my own trinkets instead of selling drinks so I chose to […]
College can be a tricky time for investing. On one hand, you’ve got the energy from your youth to pursue an interesting proposition. On the other is a combination of financial stress and lack of time due to your studies. Quick wins create a high like none other (just look at those on /r/WallStreetBets). There’s […]
There is a popular false belief that prevents many young adults from starting their own companies. It is the myth that it’s impossible to succeed in business without a college degree. Several of today’s billionaires, however, were in college when they started profitable companies. You could be starting your own business too! Mark Zuckerberg was […]
Student loan default is what happens when you don’t pay your student loans. Your student loans are turned over to a debt collector, who then attempts to collect the debt. At this point in time, you’ve likely already seen your loan balance rise, late payment fees have become part of your loan, and interest continues […]
