My first taste of freedom

This was my first Limited Liability Company. 😊

Lol I soon came to find out that tax preparing was a very tedious business. πŸ˜…

But I have admit... it was a lot of fun and it is what brought me to where I am today. πŸ™πŸΎ

I had this bright Idea when I went to the University of Rhode Island to change the homepage of every computer in the Library to my Website. πŸ“š

Pretty sure you can’t change the homepage on the entire campus now... 😬

Let’s just say business was booming and charging my fellow classmates $30 to do a simple 1040EZ was worth it. πŸ€—

I wish I had a mentor at the time though, I made a shit ton of money and went became a little over zealous. πŸ™„

Coming from a family with very little financial prowess, although I did well for myself I began to spend unnecessarily. πŸ˜“

I went on a lavish vacation.πŸ›³

Had an app developed on both IOS and Android. πŸ“±

Spent a lot of money on taxes myself. 🧾

Fact of the matter is that I spent a shit load of money on things without actually being ready, I invested in my business when I should have been investing in myself. πŸ€·πŸΎβ€β™‚οΈ

Shortly afterwards I decided to take a step back, I got recruited by a financial institution to be a β€œAsset Transfer Specialist” or something like that. πŸ‘€

I couldn’t keep doing taxes because it was a conflict of interest of some sort... so I decided to learn more about finances so that one day I could revisit my entrepreneurial mission. ✊🏾

I learned quite a bit and finally got to a point where I wasn’t learning more, and I wasn’t earning more... 😞

I had some money saved up so I put in my resignation and now I’m the Millennial Business and Finance Coach. An identity my mentor ZoeLena Shuster Zoe Katapult coined for me when I was going through her Life Coach Certification with Katapult Enterprises. ✍🏾

I look back now and I’m grateful to all those who have supported me throughout my journey. πŸ™πŸΎ
