Investor Mama- Monica Scudieri from The Piece of the Pie


Monica, author of Grab Your Slice of Financial Independence, shares how she went from financial ruin to financial independence and teaches others how to navigate these difficult waters. After her divorce, Monica found herself in financial hardship, single parenthood, and $257,000 in debt. Shortly after, she lost her job and would be unemployed for 22 months over the next five years, losing one temp job after another. Even with many setbacks, she still managed to achieve financial independence in a ten-year period. Her commitment and courage to her over-arching goal of never relying on a paycheck and wanting a better life for herself and her kids, kept her focused and propelled her forward even in the most difficult of times. She now empowers single parents to master their money.

4. What is one actionable tip or piece of advice that you can tell our moms out there to help them on their financial independence journey?

Record your expenses, the actuals. Don’t think that just because you live on your own, you’re a single parent, that you know where your money is going. Challenge yourself to record where your money is going and be kind when you see where it’s actually going. Then make decisions to do better.
