"Always stay humble and kind" - Tim McGraw
I started working at the age of 12. My mother was a single mom of two kids working full time while earning her college degree at night. She gave us everything we wanted when she could.
I learned from a very young age that if you want something in life you have to work for it. Correction- you have to work your butt off and earn it! It did not take me very long to learn the value of money.
I don't mind that my mother couldn't always give us what we wanted. I was never into designer clothes or "real" handbags. Instead, I am a bargain shopper. 'Are you telling me I can get three really cute shirts from Forever 21 for $20?' Deal!
So after taking on an extra shift at work, working six days a week, painting my own nails, skipping the mall, five months of saving and at least a month of bargaining with car salesmen, I was finally able to take home my dream truck.
I put most of my money into my education, my business, and my bills. When I was able to drive my truck off the lot, I was proud! I was extremely proud of what earned for myself!
I will always appreciate knowing the value of something that I worked so hard for.
I would like to introduce to you, my new baby, "Rosie" the Ram!
You better bet if you give a photographer her dream truck she's going to photograph it!
