I was ready to change my situation, but I didn't know the first step to take. I knew I had to start saving, but I couldn't because of the cost of my apartment. I also had some debt and needed to learn how to handle money better. Being a single mom of two children and having no one to help made things tough, too. I believe I could change things with a little help and I did. If you're ready, so can you.
