Marsha' background

Marsha’s parents weren’t really ambitious about making money. In their family, losing a job was just an inconvenience, rather than an emergency. They were only buying clothes on sales. Her parents’ lifestyle was just below their means. That’s why Marsha decided to change something. She had a passion for personal finance and wanted to fulfill it.

She turned a school bus into a mobile financial literacy hub.

Marsha was inspired by a food-truck trend, so she came up with the idea of making a mobile financial classroom. She bought a school bus on Craigslist and changed everything inside it. Now, it looks like a bar, with an area for coffee and tea. Every workstation has a notebook.
