When her daughter turned 15 years old, Marcia Smith gifted her with something unique, a business. Smith set her up with an LLC, then added her daughter to five of her own credit cards and bought her a 2021 C300 Mercedes Benz, which was immediately listed on Turo, a service to rent out privately-owned vehicles. The revenue generated is used to pay for the car and invest in stocks, so to build an investment portfolio and college fund.
Taken altogether, what Smith has really done is set her daughter on the path to financial freedom. Teaching her business entrepreneurship at an early age.
Striking a Chord
Smith posted this story on Facebook, and unsurprisingly, it resonated with people. Before she knew it, the group had more followers than she could have dreamed of acquiring. In mere weeks, she amassed over 40,000 followers. People from all over were drawn to this masterful financial decision-making of a parent ensuring their child’s future success.
People sought out Smith’s advice to similarly help their children (and often, themselves) achieve financial stability. It was a captivating story, which shed light on a means to achieving financial freedom that wasn’t just scrimping and saving. As the requests poured in, Smith happily obliged.
Sharing the Wealth
She started responding to posts with her trademark enthusiasm, sharing everything she knew about financial literacy. Drawing on her diverse knowledge and expertise in everything from credit analysis to mortgage loans and real estate, she offered her guidance. Soon, she was helping countless group members along the path to financial freedom.
What began as a simple social media post soon blossomed into a community of enquirers and contributors, seeking and assisting one another in pursuing an alternative to paycheck-to-paycheck living. Before she knew it, Smith had created something with far too much momentum to ignore.
She compiled and organized her advice into an online course, complete with weekly Q&As. From those looking to get their start in business to established business owners with concerns around the structure of their companies, people flocked to Smith’s course.
One by one, sure enough, they found precisely the guidance they needed to make their dreams become a reality.
