Learning How to Live on Your Own

As children, we often don’t realize how fortunate we are to live under our parents’ roof. Paying bills, making major decisions, working a 9 to 5 are things we know we’ll eventually have to do but don’t necessarily want to do. I would dare say we even feel this way as adults! But there comes a point in everyone’s life where he or she must leave the nest and make a living on our own. Are you ready to take that next step?

Watch this video to learn what expenses you should prepare for when living on your own.
