Lightning Round

1. What is one fun fact about you that not that many people know?

I have been trapped in quicksand before.

2. Who inspires you the most and why?

I would say my mom inspires me the most. I tell her that and she’s like, don’t hold me up on a pedestal and I’m like, you’re not on a pedestal Mom, but she inspires me because she is a wonderful mother.

3. What books are you reading now or have read and loved that you’d recommend?

Money Made Easy: How to Budget, Pay Off Debt and Save Money by Allison Baggerly

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

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

I would say set aside money for yourself. It is not selfish, or shameful, nor make you feel guilty to set aside money just for you. Whether it’s just money that you’re intentionally spending on something or you’re setting aside for your own goal. I think so often as moms, and speaking from experience, we give and give and give. It brings us joy to do that, but we forget to give back to ourselves.
