The Brightest Stars
Each week we showcase a member of our network who has earned a 5-star review on Wealthtender.
As a couple in our mid-20s, we realized it was hard to find people around us that we could talk to about personal finance topics such as, challenges in buying a house or getting the most out of our budget. Therefore, we were constantly looking online for answers. We quickly realized that we were not alone. So after reaching one of our biggest financial goals, buying a house, we decided to start The Loaded Pig.
Thanks for helping us grow.
