About Money With Mark
Growing up I was one of the fortunate ones who had parents that talked about money. My father gave (forced) me to read books like The wealthy barber and Rich dad, poor dad. I was (slightly less forced) to take personal finance classes in high school and post-secondary.
I was even lucky enough to come out of university with no debt, through a combination of my parents good money management, and all the money I made throughout high school, and university.
So you’d think a yuppie middle class white boy like me would have things figured out by the time I started my first job.
I still remember that first paycheck today. I was making about 45k a year in Calgary and my first bi-weekly paycheck was about $1,400. WOW, my rent was only $450, so that leaves me $950… PLUS I get another one of these bad boys in 2 weeks!!!
How will I ever run out of money!!! Boy I was very very wrong. Naive and young…
