Guest Bio: In 2013, Jennifer Perez hit her rock bottom. She was buried in student debt and living week to week. For as much dedication as she was putting into my 3 jobs, she wasn’t feeling the satisfaction and pride in myself that should be included with working so hard. She cut out a lot of social activities with friends, and when she splurged or rewarded myself, she always felt guilty. It felt like she wasn’t living life for myself anymore. she felt trapped.
When the depression and anxiety became too much, she decided to start working with financial advisors, attorneys, CPAs, bankers, and even financial gurus. She eventually decided to file bankruptcy in an attempt to stop the pain and buy myself more time to figure everything out.
By reading several books, taking workshops, and surrounding myself with financially successful people, she re-learned how to live only off of what she made and restructured my entire money mindset. Since then, she’s been on over 30 vacations, paid in cash for her dream wedding, built a house, built better relationships, and started a family and business!
