Key Takeaway

Changing your life means making good choices along the way

You can change your life. You will learn in school how people who started with nothing became who they wanted to be because of the choices they made along the way. People start out poor, or in trouble, or lost and learn skills that can make a difference. Just look at Oprah Winfrey. She chose to change her life. Making good choices with money can help you change your life, too.
