Choose Financial Freedom

Congratulations to all of the 2019 graduates! Your success should be celebrated and embraced because you’ve worked extremely hard to get to this point. Watch the video below for a few words of encouragement for the Class of 2019!

As you continue your life’s journey and achieve new milestones, it’s important that you force yourself to step outside of your comfort zone. The video below contains insight into how you can make the decision to forgo the familiar.

You will have to step outside of your comfort zone when you’re applying for scholarships to graduate debt-free. Some students may not enjoy writing or searching for scholarships, but don’t let your discomfort defeat you. If you choose to not apply for scholarships, then you are preparing yourself for a life burdened with student loan debt.

Be proactive today and enjoy the benefits of financial freedom later. You can watch the video below for my thoughts on receiving my debt-free degree in the mail.

Oh, by the way, recording this video was a lot easier because my degree didn’t cost me a dime! I hope the same is true for you!

All the best,

Danielle E. Jeffers

Step Outside of Your Comfort Zone

Goodbye Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter

Goodbye Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Hello YouTube and LinkedIn

A month ago, I made the decision to quit Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. I stopped using those platforms personally and professionally. If you search for me or Dough 4 Degrees on those apps, you will find our profiles. However, I’m no longer actively managing those pages.

I detailed the reasons why I quit social media aka Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter on my personal YouTube channel. Watch the video below for insight into how this change has impacted my life.


If you would like a look at my life beyond Dough 4 Degrees, then please subscribe to my personal YouTube channel. In the near future, I’ll be sharing my perspective on life as a 22-year-old debt-free graduate and a full-time entrepreneur.

Peace, blessings, prosperity, and love.
