Thank you so much for sharing my financial win this week, Andy! 😀 Biting the bullet is sometimes hard to do, and in this case, it was worth it. My credit score jumped up from 650 to 700 overnight! And you’re right, it does take some planning and patience and saving and investing the money to one day do something like this. It’s like watering a sapling until it becomes a strong family tree!
I love that analogy! Thanks for connecting and sharing your win Jack.
