I have worked in a bank setting for more than 5 years, working for a large institution in the northern United States, and a smaller home-town institution in the south.
I do NOT have a finance degree and I am NOT a financial advisor. I write about my own personal experiences having worked in this industry, issues I encounter on a regular basis, and how everyone can learn to adapt to our ever-changing financial environment.
Growing up, my single mother and her parents raised me. We were not well off – and I will share some of the experiences of my childhood that shaped my financial future in the hopes that others can avoid similar experiences.
