  • You know, my parents looked at money the same way they looked at mental health.

  • Never talk about it when it came to debt.

  • Pretend it doesn't exist.

  • Investing, Gambling a za result.

  • By the time I was 21 I had so much debt, no savings.

  • My phone was being turned off every other month.

  • I was too terrified to check my bank balance, so I avoided it like it was the pandemic.

  • And I was stressed out.

  • Most of my mental space was taken up with questions like, How am I gonna pay my rent this month?

  • Shouldn't pay for groceries or my utility bill.

  • Why did I think I could afford this money?

  • Cats, money and mental health do go hand in hand.

  • So how do you become financially liberated in an era where our commodities are no longer goats, cloth or shells?

  • Yeah, shells.

  • Shell currency has been around since the earliest days of human history and lasted up until 200 years ago.

  • Back then, you could just go to the beach and get rich, right?

  • Well, there's only one thing you need when it comes to getting your money, right?

  • Just one very simple thing.

  • A financial education.

  • I can't stress enough how important it is to understand how to attack debt, how to budget how to save how to invest, how to set up sources of passive income.

  • Because a financial education leads to financial literacy, which leads to financial independence.

  • Because nobody wants to be in this situation.

  • We here at Shell's Fargo appreciate your business.

  • However, we regret to inform our shell holders that as of yesterday, the country switched over to a paper monetary system.

  • And so we're no longer honoring these types of deposits.

  • What does that mean?

  • That my shell is worthless?

  • Unfortunately, yes.

  • What am I supposed to do with the done?

  • I suppose you could sell your remaining seashells by the seashore.

  • That's the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard.

  • You guys air shells, Fargo, you have to accept my shell.

  • Actually, three company is currently undergoing some rebranding.

  • There is no better time to get started on your financial education than right now.

  • Seriously.

  • I mean, historically, ownership was the primary vehicle to creating wealth, which in turn allowed for personal autonomy, and women were very often barred from that, to the point that Mary Gauge, in 18 80 started her own ladies exchange for railroad and mining stocks due to discrimination from male brokers.

  • But Mary wasn't even the first woman on Wall Street.

  • A decade earlier, in 18 70 Victoria Woodhull and her sister Tennessee Claflin founded Woodhull, Claflin and Company Victoria became a millionaire by 31 used her money toe a, become the first woman to run for president and be published a newspaper whose main purpose was to support her run for president.

  • What I'm saying is, money can pave the path to your dreams, and the first step to getting there is understanding how it works.

  • So I've been harassing my friends about investing because I've been taking classes on the stock market and what I love about Sophie active invest is that you can invest in fractional shares.

  • So, for example, Apple is about $380 for one share right now.

  • So if I active invest allows you to invest in as little as a dollar in select fractional stocks, and as that stock goes up, so does your investment.
