Hi. My name is Belinda Poree. I live in Harlem in New York City. One of the most expensive cities in the world. A studio apartment in a low-income neighborhood can run you about $1.5-$2k a month here. So many people here are living paycheck to paycheck and I was one of them. I don’t have a financial background. All that I learned about finances was through trial and error and self-teaching. After paying off massive credit card debt in 2 years, a co-worker asked me to teach her how to do what I’ve been doing. I know what works for me but I don’t want to give people false information. I am taking this course because I want to be able to efficiently and effectively help others who are going through what I went through. I want to learn how to help people who are stuck and don’t have the financial education to free themselves.
