Today’s hot tip proves that good things come in threes when she shares “three things I did to become a multimillionaire by age 27.” 

But to start, she much-needed adds context. “I think it’s super important to acknowledge privilege. I am a cis-gendered, straight, white woman who grew up in a middle-class family. Yeah, there’s been a lot of hard work that’s gone into this — like, a lot. However, privilege 100%.”

“Number one, I started investing as soon as I could,” she explains. “I opened up a Roth IRA and maxed it out every year. You can do that too, or at least get as close to the maximum as possible. Even just $20 a month is better than nothing.”

“[The] second thing I did [was] I started a side hustle that later became my full-time hustle. It’s this business. It’s HerFirst100k.”

“And the third thing,” she says, is that “I never stayed in a job that undervalued me. I was always negotiating for more or job hopping.”
