Penny Pincher


30 per session

Want to learn the secret of saving and spending smart? What about get ahead in life instead of barely making it?
If you have trouble with personal finance, I can help you budget and teach you how to get out of debt.

Training & Qualifications

Not to be stereotypical, but Chinese people might be one of the most hardcore penny pinchers and I am one of them [so PROUD]. I see a penny on the ground - of course I'm going to pick it up! Any amount that you can save and earn will go a long way. I keep track of all my spending and have a strict budget.

I don't have an accounting or finance degree, but being trained by my parents and being discipline with my spending for my entire life; that's worth more than a four year degree. Think about it, how many college students don't have student loans aside from those who got a scholarship, help from their parents, or work their butts off to pay for classes? It doesn't make sense, college suppose to help you get ahead in life, not put you in debt - not to mention, most of us don't even use much of what we learn in college after we graduate.

Availability & Preferences

I'm usually available after work on the weekend (4:30pm to 9:00pm), and pretty flexible during the weekends. I prefer meeting in person, but I am up for the idea to do virtual services as well.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

So-Ying was fantastic. She was on time, pleasant, and most importantly challenged me to push myself.

Photo Shoot
The last time when I had a photo shoot was maybe 10 years ago and that was super fun! I just want digital copies, but I'll be interested if the price is reasonable for hard copies. I can either...
