Hi, the Centennial Investor here. Or should I say my actual name, Anfernee McLemore. I want to take a moment and tell you a little more about me so that you can have a better understanding of my financial background and investing experience.
I began my financial freedom journey in 2018, by accident in fact. I was an accounting major at Auburn University on an outstanding scholarship with about $15,000 in credit card debt. After a short internship in the accounting field, I changed majors to finance, graduated, and currently am completing my Master’s of Finance.
Then there came a point in my life that I like to refer to as “the day of reckoning,” where I became simply disgusted with the idea of having to work hard for 40+ years in order to maybe retire by the time I’m 65. I was certain that there was a better way to build wealth than the traditional employer-sponsored 401(k).
This led me to researching ways to become financially independent from having a job so that I could then I could seek income in a field that I was truly passionate about if I wanted to. I am still on my journey. I am still finding new ways to make money online, new ways to invest my capital, and new ways to teach others how to begin their journeys to being financially free as well.
So, there’s my story. Are you ready to get started on yours?
