Jenna Carson, Partner at MoneyLucid (dot) com

Jenna Carson began the finance and investment portal MoneyLucid (dot) com as a way to make money without being dependent on anyone else. She got inspired by many other women who were in the same field. She had opted for many other jobs but was always reliant on someone else to support her income stream, which she didn’t want to.

It took her a complete 12 months to earn a sufficient amount of money since she monetized her side gig. Eventually, she left her full-time job to concentrate on growing her own company.

Dandan Zhu, Real Estate Investor

At the age of 25, Dandan was earning a high amount of salary over $215,000. Even then she chose to live cheaply. She used to share her apartment, spend a very little amount of money on her living, and save the most as much as she could. From the money she saved, she managed to buy properties for two consecutive years. Within 5 years, the monetary value of those properties increased immensely.

In 2016, she left her full-time job, indulged herself completely in the real estate business, and sold one property. And from the money she earned, she bought 3 more properties. In 2017, she took a big risk. She spent all her savings to purchase a 4-room family home. It was her best investment.

Through her real estate business, she also started her own recruitment business but was more engaged inside hustles -buying, holding, renting, and then selling real estate at a high profit. At present, she manages 14 rental units across six properties in four states.

She advises all other women to pick one of their best skills from their existing skillset and leverage it to make money. This could be done by developing a business around artistic skills and strengths, talents, or other special and unique features of their personalities and/or technical skills.
