Do you feel like you’re bad with money? You’re not alone
Michole was getting her PhD in Mathematics and managing money was stressful for her too. It’s really a catch-22 when you start: you don’t want to look at your money because it stresses you out, but the more awareness you bring to it, the less stressed you get. However, once she got started, she paid off $8,000 in nine months. Plus, she doesn’t feel so ashamed and guilty about money anymore.
