Vanessa Page

Vanessa has been obsessed with becoming rich since she was a teenager. After a brief period of unemployment after high school, she vowed to never again be poor and financially dependent on others. By working two (sometimes three!) jobs throughout university, she finished her degree in Economics from McGill University with a positive net worth.

Vanessa has traveled to over 25 countries and yes, she has a favorite -- Bulgaria, a country that has both cheap food and snowy ski mountains. Currently, she is taking graduate-level business courses because, as a self-professed nerd, she finds it impossible to stop learning. In addition, she is working on a book that will examine some untraditional topics in personal finance.
