Never Before Told Personal Investing Story
When my husband and I were first married we were on an extremely tight budget. We relocated from Ohio for him to go to a very expensive graduate school, and I had no job!
Eventually, I got a job as a career counselor and student affairs administrator at San Diego State University.
His tuition was about 1/3 of my gross salary. Fortunately, we had some savings to help with expenses.
This story explains how we managed to invest on a small salary, and ultimately grew our initial investment over 6 times.
