Educating the Youth:

Can you believe Tori started a business at the age of 9? Thanks to her parents efforts to educate her about finances at a young age she was able to learn through real life experiences how to pitch herself & handle money!

Here's how you can apply this to your life;

on with any romantic partners,

and is even open about finances

with her friends and family!

Communication in Relationships:
