Tweet your story of financial independence

Tess Vigeland Jul 1, 2011

Do you remember when you first felt financially independent? On Marketplace Money this weekend we hear from a handful of people who tell us about their first experience with financial independence.

In preparation for the show, I also asked my followers on Twitter to share their stories in 140-character or less. Here are some highlights. Also, in the Makin’ Money blog this weekend, read the story of a Somali refugee who earned financial independence.
