Finances
Ever since I was just a little boy, I always saved and treasured money. Money to me was hard to come by and rare at my age back then. The only way I could obtain any amount of cash was to work for my relatives or wait for my birthday. For many years, every time my birthday came around, someone would end up giving me money. With that money, it would end up right in my pockets where they are today, still to this point in time.

Being young and being rewarded for something you did always felt amazing, and it even motivated me even more to work harder and more often for more money.
Going forward a few years, a lot has changed. However, my views on money are still the same, I still treasure money a lot. Being young, it’s hard to earn money, working isn’t a factor beca...
