Micro Empires

I felt like I was running out of time. I was a single mother in my 40s with no money, no assets, no retirement, no place to live and the sole support for my two children. This had happened TWICE.

In just 4 years, I had created $1.4m in income producing investments with just a W2 and some grit.Join me as I continue the pursuit of Financial Independence (FI), learn from the people who have done it and take away practical steps you can do today!This is my story...
