Junior year of high school and the folks squirreled every penny to purchase an investment property. They clearly communicated there wasn’t going to be much, if anything, under the tree. Flash cut to Christmas Eve and the doorbell ringing about 9pm. I answer it to a brand new powder blue Unevega 10-speed bike.
Still tears me as they found a way!!! I’m 45 now and thanks to my business-savvy parents, my family has a solid financial portfolio. Best parents ever.
