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.

There’s a lot happening in the world.  Through it all, Marketplace is here for you. 

You rely on Marketplace to break down the world’s events and tell you how it affects you in a fact-based, approachable way. We rely on your financial support to keep making that possible. 

Your donation today powers the independent journalism that you rely on. For just $5/month, you can help sustain Marketplace so we can keep reporting on the things that matter to you.  

This is NOT a paywall. 

Marketplace is community-funded public service journalism. Give in any amount that works for you – what matters is that you give today.
