Raised by a single mom who was passed away when Jackie was in her teens led Jackie to learn important lessons about becoming financially independent very early in her life. She entered the financial industry as a second career after taking a package from a telecom company. Because Jackie had to become financially independent at such a young age she was hungry to learn the principles of real wealth and saw the profession as her golden opportunity.
She is happy to share her journey to creating a 7 figure net worth out of very humble beginnings.
