Finance. It’s a topic that is cared about by virtually everyone yet can really cause anxiety when dealing with it. Personally, I got started in finance, as many do, because I wanted to invest my money. After a solid 7 years of investing and getting slaughtered by the market in 2008, I had had enough. I turned to real estate. Dealing with financing motivated me to learn even more about finance and I ended up getting into business with my dad years later and have built a semi-successful business with him based off of this knowledge.
