TAP Money Tree Program 💸
This is NOT your traditional College Ambassador experience.
About Your Money Tree Program 🤝
The money tree is real. Do not believe what the world tells you with this myth. We must admit, the money tree is usually not given, rather seeded and earned through rewards. Take this for example. Let’s start off with the seed of budgeting. In order to grow your money tree, your seed must always in budgeting. Next, we water that seed with a good credit score, a savings account, an emergency fund, a retirement fund, a good insurance policy, and more. Finally, we have a small tree with a very strong trunk. The trees branches are very fragile, yet continuing to grow. In order to grow those branches, you can do several things such as:
- Start a side hustle, turn it into a business
- Invest in real estate income properties
- Invest in the stock market
If we take a closer look, you may notice that all those bullets are not guaranteed. They may be more volatile and fluctuate, leaving you with small branches without any leaves. However, if you are successful in maintaining those bullets, you may start seeing leaves appear. These leaves are our passive income! It may not start off plentiful, but you can get there.
We have just proven to you that the money tree is in fact real. Everyone has their own money trees - they just don't talk about it. Some seeds may be just turning into trees. Some trees may be bigger than other trees. Some trees may produce way more leaves than other trees.
It’s time to plant your money tree seed at your university and grow your branch. Join the financial literacy movement and make an impact.
