How did you work up the money to buy your own barn/land?

Okay, so im only a teen, but for some reason i've been freaking out about how i will ever get enough money to buy a big piece of land with a barn!!!

So, i thought i would ask how you guys are doing it, how did you get enough money to buy a piece of land and afford all of that? what job did you do? How old were you when you got it?

It makes me almost go into a panic attack type thing everytime i think about it for some reason! and i know, im still pretty young, but i want an idea of what im going to do or how to do it or any advice!
thanks :)

If there are no horses in heaven... im not going.

Start saving now!! Lol. Seriously, put aside $10-$20 when you can (I do from every paycheck, sometimes more) and it adds up. Keep your credit good (I don't recommend credit cards, but if you have a car payment, bill in your name, something like that will help). That should set you up for the ability to get a good loan and have a decent down payment. Or, you can just save up and buy outright.

Maintain good credit (when you're old enough to get some.) This means paying all bills on time, not using credit cards beyond your means, and not taking out more loans than you need. Using credit cards and paying them off shows that you can manage your money. It's good to have a card in case of emergency, or if you need to put a deposit on something (such as a hotel) or pay for something online.

Get a good, solid education that will allow you to earn a good living. If you plan on running a business from you from you'll definitely want to take some business courses. Make sure you find an industry that you enjoy - don't become a doctor just for the money if you don't think you'll enjoy the work!

Very good advice! (praying God sends me one! (fingers crossed))
Problem is...
1. You have to find one...
2. You got to fall in love with him.
3. It would help if he fell in love with you too lol! :)

I thought thats what match.com and eharmony were for Ladies! "Prefers men that like horses, can lift a minimum of 50lbs and can wield a mean manure fork. Welding skills a plus! If you drive a mazda then you're probably not my type. Minimum 3/4 ton trucks and 50hp tractors required" ;o)
