Does Adversity make us Stronger? Here’s my Story

My friend, Fred, at MoneyWithAPurpose, was kind enough to feature me in today’s interview.  Fred writes about people overcoming adversity, something I know quite well. Did adversity make me stronger?

In particular, while poverty helped me develop great savings habits, it also made me a bit neurotic about spending and enjoying money. Hope you enjoy the read!

Here’s a link to my story of adversity.
