Q: How does a billionaire child end up $2 million dollars in debt at the age of 40?
A: By being completely financially disempowered.
Curry Glassell was raised in a billionaire home but was actively discouraged as a child from learning about budgeting or personal finances. At age 40, she ended up a newly-divorced mother of two, with $2 million in debt and no understanding at all of how financial institutions work.
“I was surrounded by wealth but I was always reliant on others to give me the funds I needed and wanted. I wasn’t taught how to understand or use the power of money,” she explains.
