The following blog post is part of the The Road to Financial Wellness Blog Tour. Over a period of 30 days, the Phroogal team will go to 30 locations to raise awareness about financial empowerment. On June 6 they will be in the Washington D.C. area! Our goal is to help people learn about money by starting the conversation. We understand that local conversations can help bring about national awareness.
I met William when he was doing plumbing repairs at my home. I’ve got an old house, so plumbing issues crop up periodically. We started talking and he told me about his dysfunctional childhood.
(It always amazes me when people tell me such intimate details about their lives, and not just about money.)
