Tell us about you (What drives you)
My main goal is to achieve as many milestones as possible by 30. Travel to crazy places, buy a house, get a dog. That way I can hit 30 and have a fun chilled lifestyle! If I tick off as many #bigmoney goals, I hope that way I can be ‘financially’ stress-free later in life so the harder I work now, the more chance of that happening!
