My Grandmother "The Ultimate Penny Pincher!"
Are You A Self-Taught Individual?
My Grandma Became A Self-Taught Person.
Here's a tale about my grandmother, who was the eldest of seven siblings, she did not finish school, and wasn't able read or write. And at the tender age of 10, she took on the responsibilities of taking care of her siblings, while her mother went to work and supported their family. When she became an adult, she left home and got married to a young stub which was my grandfather, shortly after that she became a mother that is when her self-motivation kicked in. She became self-taught women in everything she did, I guess she was eager to learn and earn. My grandmother worked for pennies on the dollar, but she understood how money works, she worked at factory for more than 25 years. And it seemed like everything, she touched would somehow turn into gold, that's how I remember her.
