My great grandmother gave me 100 shares of Marriott stock when I was born as a college savings plan.

Sharing is Caring!

This is the best gift I have ever received. I ended up not needing it for college, so I was able to purchase a used car outright a few years after graduation, I was able to put a down payment on my first house, and I still have some leftover. It has helped me build my savings as well. I have started a custodial account for my sons and have invested in VTI and some individual companies as well.

No questions here, just saying that I am thankful for that gift and it has allowed me to do some things I wouldn’t have otherwise been able to do.
