Your Number One Obstacle

FIRECracker
Follow me

“A hero is an ordinary individual who finds strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles. “ Christopher Reeve
I love obstacles. Put an impossible task in front of me, tell me there’s NO WAY I can conquer it, and I will kill myself proving to you that I can.

Like when my childhood bullies said I’d always stay poor.

Like when I failed an exam and my professor told me I wasn’t cut out for engineering and that I’ll never get my degree.

Like when my ex-coworker scoffed at me for quitting my job, snidely saying that I’d come crawling back in 6 months after running out of money.

I’m now a millionaire, I got my engineering degree, and not only did I NOT run out of money more than a year later, I now have MORE money than when I left.

I never give in to bullies. And I love obliterating obstacles.

That’s why when readers subscribe to the Millennial Revolution, I ask you all the same question:

“What is the number one obstacle keeping you from living your dreams right now?”

That’s right, we actually do read every single one of your responses. And here’s what you told us. Note that many people named multiple things in their responses, so that’s why the percentages don’t add up to 100%.

#1 Obstacle: Debt:

A whopping 64% of you said debt. The most prevalent one being STUDENT debt. Followed by mortgage and consumer debt.

Considering how 70% of Americans graduate their bachelors with debt and Americans collectively owe $1.2 Trillion in student debt, this is problem that’s threatening to swallow not just our readers, but most American graduates.

Across the border, Canadians are also drowning in debt. But a different kind of debt.

With the debt to income ratio at 171% (meaning we owe $1.71 for every $1 we make) and a combined MORTGAGE debt of $1.29 Trillion, Canadians have gone past the precipice and exceeded the 147% debt-to-income ratio of the Americans right before 2008.

#2 Obstacle: Investment Knowledge:

Nipping at the heels of debt, at 59% is: lack of investment knowledge. Many people who mentioned this as their obstacle have either been tricked into bad investments by shady “investment advisors” or had no idea how to start investing.

From “advisors” telling readers to take out a loan at a crappy rate of 3+% interest to put into risky investments, to ones who flat out lie, refusing to admit Preferred shares ETFs exist, to ones who advocate risky and zero-sum game Forex plays, the list of investment horror stories goes on and on.

No wonder readers are confused and scared of investing. The financial industry is full of greedy assholes trying to steal your money and telling you lies for their own personal gain.

Believe us, we know. When we first looked into investing back in 2008, we met those very same people.

#3 Obstacle: Lack of Money:

32% say lack of money, either from high expenses or a low paying job was the reason they couldn’t live their dreams.

As an engineer, I was lucky enough to have had a high-paying job for the last 9 years, but that wasn’t always the case. In fact, I grew up poor. And though it wasn’t easy, growing up poor has taught me that not having enough money, tough as it is, doesn’t mean you’ll never become rich. It means you will have to develop the creativity, resilience, adaptability, and perseverance to get out of that situation. And let me tell you, had I never been poor, there’s no way I would be where I am today.

#4 Obstacle: Fear:

27% are terrified. Terrified of running out of money. Terrified of investing. Terrified of failing.

I was terrified too. Even though I had enough F-U money and the math told me our plan was sound, I was still scared shitless when I quit my job.

But as it turns out, I had nothing to worry about. Once I started travelling and my costs were much lower than expected, I realized reality is FAR FAR less scary than the terrifying, fake reality that happens in our brains.

#5 Obstacle: Lack of Budgeting tools/Skills:

13.6% said they didn’t have the budgeting skills or the tools to help them save more money.

If you read the first article in our “how we got here series”, you’ll notice the title is “God, we were spendy back then…

No one is born with budgeting skills. This is something we learned over time. Don’t worry, once we show you how to get started, it’ll get easier and easier over time.

 

“What is the number one obstacle keeping you from living your dreams right now?”

 screen-shot-2016-10-03-at-1-16-39-am

So that’s it in a nutshell. You’ve spoken and told us your obstacles. From debt, to bad investments, to fear, these are not exactly easy problems to solve.

But that’s okay. A road with no obstacles probably doesn’t lead anywhere good anyway.

So we are going to get through this together. Roll up your sleeves, grab some dynamite, and over the next series of posts, we’re going to work together and blow these obstacles of yours up. Because you’ve told us what’s holding you back, over the next few weeks we will be directly addressing each and every one of these concerns, and hopefully generating a healthy conversation about how some of your fellow readers also tackled some of these issues themselves.

Let’s get this shit done!

Oh, and special mention to the funniest response we got to the question: “What is the number one obstacle keeping you from living your dreams right now?”

His answer: his wife.

Ouch. Not sure we can’t help you with that one buddy…

  1. Yet another interesting post! I thoroughly enjoy reading your work here. I also pick up bits of knowledge here and there. For example, I did not know that Preferred ETFs exist. I am very curious to learn about this. Looks like a great dividend strategy.

    You have said that you are not investment professionals so you cannot disclose your portfolio. I am interested in reading about Garth’s allocation philosophy. Is there a book or a blog post I can read?

    Thanks again!

          1. People go through pains in their relationships it’s hard to give up on true love, sometimes we pretend to be fine but we are not, fighting to get the one we love is also fighting to get back our joy and happiness. Robinson buckler is here to help the broken hearts for he’s capable and able to get your EX lovers, partners, wife and husband back with he’s powerful love spells. he also cured me from Herpes Get in touch with his email through robinsonbuckler@ (yahoo). com …He cured me from Herpes ??????????

    1. Dear B,
      Garth has a funny but informative blog called the greatfool.ca. I would recommend taking a look because Garth is a clever and great writer like Christy. In fact I learned about Millennial Revolution from reading about them in Garth’s blog. In particular, I highly recommend Garth’s post where he introduces Millennial Revolution and Christy takes questions. The greaterfool audience were stunned to learn of these young ‘uns success and Christy put on a hell of a great performance- pure literary theater and don’t forget to bring a bowl of popcorn!

    3. I recovered my stolen crypto worth ( $345,000 ) from investment scammers through this hacking services, if you have been scammed before, they can help you get your money back…

    1. Very difficult to find a good financial advisor. We had to interview a LOT of bad ones before we finally found Garth and he’s proven his worth.

      But yeah, in general, most financial advisors are not to be trusted.

      Well done on growing your net-worth! What’s your allocation and what investment strategy do you use?

  2. Before I started getting interested in personal finance, I’d probably say my obstacles were debt, lack of investment knowledge, and lack of budgeting.

    Debt: Went into law school and took out $87k in student loans. I wisely crushed that student loan debt as fast as possible. Ms. FP still has $131k in student loan debt, but she’s in residency earning zero dollars. We’re gonna crush that student loan debt as soon as she starts getting a paycheck (and we’ll live off my paycheck during that time).

    Lack of Investment Knowledge: Oh man, I didn’t know sh*t. Never invested anything legit during college or law school. My only investment I ever made was to put $100 into Border stocks (for some reason, I swore it would go up one day). You can guess what happened to that $100.

    Lack of Budgeting: From college through law school, every dollar I got, I spent. In my summer associate job at my law firm, I made over $20,000 in 10 weeks. I spent every single penny of those paychecks.

    Looking forward to your next series of posts!

    1. Both of you have very high income potential so you should be able to crush that $131K with no problems.

      As for investing and budgeting, we didn’t know our ass from a hole in the ground when we started either. But once you have the goal of getting enough F-U money to quit, you’ll be AMAZED at how easy it is to invest and save.

  3. Biggest obstacle: lack of money. Didn’t make a heckuva lot during my 20’s/30’s. Making up for it now, but accumulation is slow. I’m 1/3rd where I want to be, but my financial independance fund is definitely at FU status.

    Second biggest obstacle: I have a very low tolerance for losing money. I’ve tried to overcome this, but it seems to be an ingrained flaw.

    (Going for my ITIL in January – thank you to everyone here for your suggestions. You really helped me.)

    1. I hear you on #2. Took me a long time to overcome that one myself. Best solution is exposure therapy – if you only wager a little over time you’ll get more comfortable with the idea of sometimes having things go down in value.

      1. MY HUSBAND LEFT ME FOR NO REASON. I WAS NO LONGER MY SELF AND AT A TIME, I ATTEMPTED TO COMMIT SUICIDE. BUT THANK GOD I CAME ACROSS ROBINSON BUCKLER ONLINE. I READ GOOD REVIEWS ABOUT HIS GOOD WORK AND HOW USEFUL AND HELPFUL HE HAS BEEN TO PEOPLE. I CONTACTED HIM AND TOLD HIM MY PROBLEM. HE TOLD ME THAT MY WAN WILL COME BACK TO ME. HE TOLD ME WHAT TO DO AND I DID IT AND TO MY GREAT SURPRISE MY HUSBAND CAME BACK JUST AS HE SAID. I EVEN NOTICED THAT WHEN MY HUSBAND RETURNED, HE EVEN LOVES ME MORE. THIS IS NOT BRAIN WASHING, CONTACT HIM NOW ON HER EMAIL: ROBINSONBUCKLER@ YAHOO. COM

  4. Can’t argue with that list. Debt was our first big obstacle to tackle, and we were Dave Ramsey fans back then specifically for that reason. His plan worked for us — we were completely debt free, including the mortgage, in less than 5 years. And once you clear that obstacle, the rest get pretty darn easy.

    Good stuff as always.

    1. Nice! Debt can’t hurt you too badly if you get out of it in less than 5 years. Good thing you found the Dave Ramsey plan!

      1. Maybe. The opportunity costs from paying off our mortgage might actually exceed the total interest payments on our bad debt (like student loans). Might make for an interesting blog post.

        But there are some salient benefits, too. Paying off the debt got us organized (had to track spending, make a budget) and built the foundational habits that we still use today. So, all in all, yeah, pretty good that we found Dave Ramsey. I just wish he got rid of baby step 6.

  5. I’m waiting hungrily for your thoughts on #2. My father-in-law mentioned yesterday (within hearing of my wife) that he’d like it if we had a consultation with his financial advisor. In the third place, as a highly-paid retired boomer, I’m not inclined to trust that his situation is anything like ours; in the second place, it’s not particularly his place to say — and in the first place, he doesn’t know our investment strategy! We’re floating along happily with VTSAX and a bit of VBTLX, with VGSLX in a Roth. At least, I thought we were. Now wife is interested in meeting up with this guy, who’ll probably try to skim a point or two off the top and recommend overpriced annuities.

    ugh. halp.

  6. Hey guys,

    Love reading your articles. Just had an idea I thought I would throw your way and see if it sticks. Would you consider setting up your website to include some kind of ‘Millennials Corner’ (working title) …. I wish I had a place to connect with other people who have similar life goals to not buy a house, not have kids, and retire early. What would make it even cooler would be some basic way to chart our progress (say I make my personal goal $500k then I retire – I keep charting and record my progress). Users input the data and we have profiles and that kind of thing.

    Just a thought, maybe it will catch.

    Cheers,
    Kevin

  7. Great list! We have been doubling up on our mortgage payments thinking that that was the wisest use of our money. No one really talks about investing and markets swing so much that it feels more like gambling.

    Less than 6 months of payments left and we burn the mortgage. And Once those payments are done, savings rate will be close to 50%.

    Anyways, I would love for you to demystify the investing process.

    1. Nice job on burning that mortgage! You should have a mortgage burning party once you’re done 🙂

      We thought investing was like gambling too, back when we didn’t know anything about investing. But after we discovered indexing, we realized it’s actually quite simple and straight forward (and the fact that it’s vetted by Warren Buffet helps too). We’ll break it all step by step down so you can see what we mean.

  8. I think most people’s biggest obstacle is the need to impress others. People care too much what others think. So they go out and look for the easy fix and buy luxury goods to impress or compete with them. My wife and I recently bought electric bicycles and got rid of our vehicle and we cannot leave the house without getting questions and comments every time. I keep thinking if I had a Porche people wouldn’t comment as much as they do on our electric bikes. How much are they, how fast do they go, is that electric?

    You don’t need to spend half of your life working to impress others. With the money and time we save we have a lot of money and time for fitness. That is another thing that impresses people. When you look youthful and fit for your age. When you don’t look stressed out from trying to afford all of your luxuries.

    1. I agree that people spend too much time trying to impress others and stressing themselves out. The thing they don’t realize is, if they try to derive happiness from what others think, they will NEVER be happy. Doesn’t matter if they’re working or retired.

      Those people who keep commenting on your bikes…I wonder what comments they’re going to have when you’re financially independent, healthy and happy, while they continue working and increasing their waistlines by driving everywhere.

      Keep up the good work! You’re saving money, saving the planet, AND keeping fit. Kudos to you!

  9. Do you and Bryce have $2 million ?

    If not declaring oneself individually a millionaire losses street cred. More like $500k’r.

    If you guys have 2 mil, then you are legit each 7 figs.

    1. CBC, BNN, Business Insider, Yahoo Finance…none of them seemed to have that definition. Clearly you know more than all of them.

  10. That wife comment is a little funny , but pilainful on both ends. I personally Sat with my wife and she says she is behind me with investing, but she always purchasing things we do not need despite me telling her where we need to cut back. Then there are the days where she is all money is the root of all evil and I need to focus on GOD…..

    1. Yikes. That sounds hard.

      I used to like spending money, buying coach purses, and going out a lot too. None of that made me happy for an extended period of time. You only get a rush from shopping until you get bored of whatever it is you bought and need to buy something else.

      Escaping the 9 to 5 and having the freedom to do what I love is the only thing that made me happy and continues to make me happy.

      From my experience, the two main things that need to be considered in changing behaviour are:

      1)motivation
      2)confidence

      Whenever I want to accomplish something challenging, I need to find enough motivation to do it in the first place AND have enough confidence that I can eventually get there (usually through lots of practice and taking baby steps).

      Is there enough motivation for her to reach the goal? Or maybe she’s not confident about investing?

  11. The bond market bubble has had nasty side effects. It’s caused an explosion of consumer debt & created the greatest housing bubble Canada has ever seen. I don’t think there is a safe way out of this at this point. I think the staggering amount of debt sold to Canadians will have adverse effects on the Canadian economy for some time.

  12. Great article! What’s your opinion on the robo advisors that are in Canada? Their fees are pretty low and they are simple to use.

  13. I have to tell you that you guys ROCK! Talk about having your heads on straight. And eloquent to book. And funny too. I hope to God that your message is heard far and wide and followed because you know what you are talking about. Okay, enough gushing but i am serious. I am an old geezer (55) and planning to retire in 6 months. The number one issue that I faced as an investor was insufficient knowledge which rightly lead to inertia. I couldn’t bring myself to invest my cash because I didn’t trust that I knew what I was doing. And, it didn’t help that my husband was so conservative that he thought that investing in the stock market was no different than playing the lotto. So I educated myself. An excellent site to learn from is seekingalpha.com. A free site with wonderful contributors and excellent commentary. From that site I learned about dividend growth investing and have used that method of portfolio construction for a number of years now. It gives me (and my husband!) peace of mind since I essentially know the income that my stocks are generating and I will have no need to tap into capital. When I retire our portfolio will be generating over $230,000 of dividends a year without us ever needing to sell a single share. And yes, we have a very large stock portfolio. And yes, we both have very high paying jobs. But we have also never allowed wage inflation to dictate our spending. We live simple but very comfortable lives. No showy jewels, no furs, no custom made clothes or shoes, no fancy cars, no gigantic estate home. I would never in a million years spend $20,000 for a stainless steel BBQ (like some of my friends). I would never even spend $200 on a pair of jeans (like some of my nieces who earn roughly 4% of what I make). Our car is a 9 year old Nissan for christ’s sake (and yes, we only have one!). But it looks brand new because we maintain it. We’ve also travelled the world in case you YOLO types get your hackles up! And yes, we donate well over 10% of our GROSS income and we have paid for all of our nieces and nephews university education, for those of you who think we are selfish. Those are the things that make us happy. If you looked at us in the grocery store you would think that we are your typical middle class family. We fit right in and we like it that way. Keeping up with the Jones is so passe. It is really “keeping up with the losers”. My only regret is that I didn’t start earlier. I would have been retired years ago. You guys keep preaching the word because you are RIGHT….

    1. Well done! You should be very proud of all your accomplishments and your awesome life! I would never spend $20K on a BBQ or $200 on a pair of jeans either. Those things do NOT add to my happiness and all they do is depreciate in value.

      Welcome to the blog! It’s always nice to meet like-minded people.

  14. ” A road with no obstacles probably doesn’t lead anywhere good anyway.” Probably one of my favorite lines I’ve read on this blog 🙂

  15. yup fear!

    fear of not getting that nice watch
    fear of being able to travel in luxury
    fear of being poor
    fear of driving the same old car for the next 10 years
    fear of not being to have fine dining

    I’m not a saint, these thoughts come across my mind everyday despite myself control to not act on any of them.

  16. I would say our obstacle is lack of money. While we make an okay income, we live in a high cost of living in NYC. Maybe the obstacle is actually the fact that live in a high cost of living area…and that we have no plans to leave. It’s actually something that I think about often…leaving. But it is tough to leave family, friends, the job…sigh…so I have mostly myself to blame

    1. Balderdash. I am from NYC, and while I choose not to live there now, there are still plenty of reasonable areas. Riverdale. Washington Heights. Flatbush, if you must have Brooklyn. The entire rest of the Bronx!! You don’t need a car, the mass transit is excellent, food is actually quite cheap.

      So…go to free museums, get discount Broadway tickets, and walk, walk, walk your way to freedom!

      1. Wow! Good to know there are still lots of reasonable areas to live in NY. And I do agree that the subway is affordable and convenient (though INSANELY hard to navigate if you’re not a NYer! We got SO lost when we were there), so definitely a plus.

    2. Choosing to live in an expensive city does mean that you will need a bigger portfolio. The less flexible you are, the longer you will have to work. And vice versa.

      That being said, you do have the option of going down to part-time instead of fully retiring. That will reduce the portfolio size you need and let you continue to live in NY.

      1. Great point! I was actually thinking about doing that if my employer allows for it. I don’t hate my job that much but crave freedom and flexibility, so part time works for me. As to snowcanyon, I’m not in Manhattan or Brooklyn…I’m in Queens. Yes, there are reasonably priced areas (well comparatively), but it is still expensive nonetheless, especially when you have little ones and having a being in a decent school district is important to me.

  17. I find fear to be the biggest obstacle. But as the Notorious BIG once rapped, “livin’ life without fear, puttin’ five karats in my baby girl’ ear.” OK, I’m not puttin’ five karats in my baby girl’s ear, but I am definitely living life without fear, in a super conservative frugal sort of way.

I contacted him a year and a half Ago and he didn’t succeed. when i got ripped of $491,000 worth of bitcoins by scammers, I tried several recovery programs with no success too. I kept on. And now after so much time Mr Morris Gray contacted me with a success, and the reward he took was small because obviously he is doing this because he wants to help idiots like me who fell for crypto scam, and love his job. Of course he could have taken all the coins and not tell me , I was not syncing this wallet for a year, but he didn’t.
    He is the MAN guys , He is! If you have been a victim of crypto scam before you can trust Morris Gray 10000000%.

    from them that was when everything started looking weird. Some weeks later I got a mail from them insisting I should invest more money if I want to withdraw
    my money which I rejected, and I never hear from them again that was when I knew I had been scammed. I was really devastated at those moment and felt so bad
    that my hard earned money was gone. After some m onths I came across a lot of testimonies on the web how patrick benard wizard had helped many people
    recovered their stolen, scammed or duped money on bitcoin or any other form in digital currency. I contacted them and they promised to help me get my money

  25. HOW I FULLY RECOVERED MY FUNDS FROM CRYPTO SCAMMERS

    It is truly amazing what you can achieve with the right information. I’m truly grateful for the service of AstraWeb Cyber Security Network, which was able to recover my cryptocurrency funds from fake investment accounts. Losing $184,000 of my hard-earned money was excruciating and devastating when I thought I could earn more from investing in cryptocurrency, not knowing that I had fallen for a scam. I was able to contact AstraWeb Cyber Security Network when I did my research online and came across their website http://www.astrawebcybersecurity. net
    I saw that AstraWeb Cyber Security Network has been helping many victims like me to recover their funds.
    I’m truly grateful for their service and I commend them for being professional and trustworthy.

    Thank you for your time.

  26. SCAMS CAN COME IN MANY FORMS, BUT ALL ARE DESIGNED TO GET A HOLD OF YOUR MONEY.

    If you have been affected by a fraud case in any way(be it love scam, Fx scam, crypo investment scams and loan scams etc), you could be confused and overwhelmed by the different financial institutions that handle similar situations. Often the recovery process and legal fights to get the money back become a hassle that is difficult to personally manage. You will be lucky if you can find someone who is experienced in dealing with the fraudulent crimes that have been made. It would be a better choice to utilize the services of a reputable firm like us that specializes in fund recovery.

    Unfortunately, The first mistake was getting your funds stolen (crypto scam, trading/Fx investment scam,romance scam etc.)”
    Let The most tactical funds recovery team, Assetsretrievalboard.com save you from making the second mistake. Do not seek help from any of these fake recovery emails (scammers) on this very platform or elsewhere , it will land you in more loss.
    Sending any message to emails here that claim to be hackers.?

  27. I was devastated when I realized that the 42 ETH I had purchased years ago, now worth around $42,000, had somehow disappeared from my cryptocurrency wallet. I frantically searched through my transaction records but could find no trace of where the valuable ETH had gone. As the reality sunk in that a small fortune had potentially vanished into the abyss of the blockchain, I felt crushed thinking about all that hard-earned money evaporating in an instant. In desperation, I started scouring cryptocurrency forums for help, looking for anyone who might be able to work some kind of magic in recovering lost funds. After days of dead ends, I finally came across whispers of an underground service called Folkwin Expert Recovery that claimed to be able to retrieve inaccessible cryptocurrency under certain conditions. With nothing to lose, I decided to give them a try. The Folkwin Expert Recovery specialists got to work analyzing the intricate details of my transaction records and blockchain activity. Using advanced forensic techniques, they miraculously managed to identify where the missing ETH had ended up and formulated a process to reclaim the lost coins. After several painstaking attempts, the Folkwins finally succeeded in restoring my 42 ETH, now worth $42,000. I was euphoric when I saw the six-figure sum reappear in my wallet, snatched from the jaws of catastrophic loss. I couldn’t believe the Folkwin had actually pulled off this amazing feat. I learned that cryptocurrency mistakes aren’t always irreversible – with the right experts, lost funds can sometimes be rescued from the abyss by modern magic. Thanks to Folkwin Expert Recovery.

  28. I am Jackie from New Jersey. When the ‘Ghost Traders’ inboxed me on the potentiality of tenfold returns, i caved in. If you have sen the numerous ads running on the same traders, you will definitely be interested to invest, but in this case, I think it was a ploy of the same account by fraudsters. My investment totally came to $400,000 over time in the promise of helping me in trading Bitcoin.  Soon afterwards, the whole website went missing, no traces. And my money with it. Was a pretty low moment for me. Fast forward to finding TheexnerhackerATprotonmailDOTcom. and I shared my nightmare with them. I had given them 12 hours to comlete the necessary but beat me to it, recovering all my money in 6 hours. A quick tip to share as I was personally advised is, if your hacker takes too long to get back your funds/crypto after you have provided all the requirements, seek help somewhere alse. thank you THE EXNER HACKER for the solid. 

  29. Nothing could have prepared me for the shock and betrayal I felt when I discovered that $100,000 worth of Bitcoin, along with access to my trading account, had vanished. This catastrophe unfolded after I naively allowed a close friend to use my computer, not realizing he harbored malicious intentions. Betrayal hit hard when, just three days later, he exploited my trust, accessed my email, and swept my accounts clean. Initially, it didn’t cross my mind that my friend could be the culprit. However, the painful reality began to dawn on me, and I knew I needed help. That’s when I came across FOLKWIN EXPERT RECOVERY while searching online for a solution. Desperate for assistance, I reached out to them, explaining the dire situation. The team at FOLKWIN EXPERT RECOVERY responded swiftly. They began by securing all existing accounts to prevent further damage. They then conducted a thorough investigation, using digital forensics to trace the unauthorized transactions and access points. Their expertise and quick action were comforting in a time of immense stress. As they unraveled the evidence, it became clear that my friend was indeed responsible. Armed with undeniable proof, I confronted him. Despite the compelling evidence laid out before him, he vehemently denied any wrongdoing. This refusal to accept responsibility only deepened my sense of betrayal. FOLKWIN EXPERT RECOVERY continued their diligent work, and through ethical hacking and collaboration with crypto trading platforms, they managed to regain control of my accounts. Their technical prowess not only recovered what was lost but also reinforced the security of my digital assets to prevent future breaches. The resolution of the technical issues, however, couldn’t mend the broken trust between my friend and me. When he finally asked for forgiveness, it was too late. The damage was irreversible, and I made the difficult decision to end the friendship. The betrayal was too deep, and the risk of repeating such an incident was something I could not overlook. Thanks to FOLKWIN EXPERT RECOVERY, I regained not only my stolen assets but also a vital lesson in personal and digital security. The experience was harrowing, but it taught me the importance of vigilance and the value of professional cybersecurity support. Now, with stronger security measures in place and a cautious approach to trust, I feel more prepared to protect my digital and personal boundaries. To get in touch with them for help.
