Getting to know Melissa
Best piece of financial advice received: Don’t wait until you are “old enough,” “ready” or married to begin financial and retirement planning; start on your own as soon as you have a job, even if you can only start with a little bit. Discipline and time are your allies! Empower yourself to be financially literate early!

Place Melissa would most like to visit: South America…a country-by-country slow tour of the whole continent would be my dream
