Financial Advice


Thu, March 11, 2021 8:41 PM

Do any of you have financial advice for how to afford everything I need such as medicine, supplements, and food? I don't have enough money to make ends meet and would like some advice. I would prefer to be as financially independent as possible and not need to borrow money. I live near Sarasota and Tampa Florida.
