Halloween is a holiday we’ve never understood and probably feel a little too old for. Back in 2007, I thought my “deviled egg” costume was s-e-x-y. You know what’s sexy to me now? My i-n-v-e-s-t-m-e-n-t-s. Which is what we’re going to talk about today.

We talked to Taylor Y. about her life post-Circle and how's she's been able to triple her net worth in a matter of months. We're all about sharing the wealth, so we asked her to share how she did it—so you can too.
