Lightning Round

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

I live in Medellin Colombia.


2. Who inspires you the most and why?

I’d have to say my son and daughter and, and not really in the sense that you think of people that inspire you for what they’ve done.  I love them to death, but they haven’t done anything right now. But they motivate me to be a better person.


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

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?

Start with your financial goal, something that really motivates you to take action. You want to make those goals real, right. Build a story in your head about what do you wanna do with that money. What is life like in retirement? If one of your goals is for your children’s education, what’s it going to feel like when they walk across that stage at their college graduation.
