Perhaps your local credit union offers something like this! 2 - Experiences seem to resonate more with kids J remembers that her godmother took her to an imax movie on dinosaurs but can't remember who bought her the Tamagachi or the Furby or any of the other super popular toys from the 90s and early 2000s. Experiences seem to resonate more with kids. 3 - Don't be afraid to ask Christina was able to get some flexibility in her job after having kids because she had money in the bank and because she wasn't afraid to ask. Both Christina & Gwen encourage people to ask for what they want because you never know until you try. Questions? Like or dislike? Leave us a comment!
