Money Can Start Raining From The Sky Anytime

My mother called me in a panic the other night, saying that I should turn on the television, and get in touch with whoever this genius was that was being interviewed.


Best intentions aside, I remember not too long ago being the kid in public school wearing the oxford shirt, penny loafers, and below-the-knee khaki shorts at recess.

My mom and I don't see eye-to-eye on much, so I was convinced that whoever had piqued my mom's interest would be a total waste of time.


Turns out it was Shannon, the mastermind behind the Barter Babes Project.

Shannon's goal is simple, to demystify anything and everything to do with finance.
My newfound empanada making skills are being put to the test, as I'm trading her a few dozen for her sound advice when it comes to my financial future - NO BIGGIE!

Lofty goals?
Maybe...but dreaming about it is a hell of a lot more fun than eating beans (again!) in the dark, sobbing about how you suck at life/money, no?!
