about Me

I graduated college during the great recession with two degrees. I also had $100,000 in student loan debt, $30000 in consumer debt, $3,000 in medical debt, and a beat-up car that was on its last leg, I quickly realized that if something didn’t change I was going to be in financial shackles forever!  

I needed to make drastic changes to my lifestyle.

I'm still learning but you've made it easier. I am using it to pay my loans off as well! Can you do a video on explaining a little more information so I can be prepared when it's time to pay taxes? Keep being great 😊

I'm just getting started with delivery services and this is some Great information. I subscribed!

Thank you for your advice.

Thank you for taking the time to give us this information. My head is spinning a little while but I think I'm going to go with car expenses instead of standard mileage. Definitely earned a new subby  

Wow this video was so informative!

With a lot of side hustle videos in YT, we tend to want to do everything at the same time, but ending up not doing anything. This video is helpful, thank you! 

Great video!

I have delivered with Uber eats, but I was not earning too much because I had another income coming in. Now, I signed up with doordash because I don't have that income coming in anymore and I'm planning to do it full time and I haven't even taken my first trip because I was so confused and afraid to get in trouble without knowing how much to put aside or how to track my milage, thank you so much!

You are a breath of fresh air!

I've been working a while with dd and just started instacart and I have been tracking my miles ... BUT I never knew all this info you just got a new sub I appreciate all the work you've done❗❗

 I appreciate all the work you've done

This video is excellently prepared. Thank you so much! I have been dashing for over a year and am looking for content to send a friend who is just starting out. This has helped me learn new skills and will be a great source for them to start out better than I did! 😂🎇

Thank you so much for this video.
