Lightning Round

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

I love to cook. And I don’t know if I told you, but I started my own business.  I’m starting a charcuterie cheese board business.


2. Who inspires you the most and why?

My mother. She came to this country not knowing the language, not knowing the culture, and being a single mom. I know how much mothers give up for their kids but I knew she gave up her friends,  culture and the language that she was comfortable with, and she came here kicking ass, taking names.


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?

I would just say focus on you, focus on your family. What works for you might not work for others and vice versa. Stick to your guns, know what your goals are and have only one or two financial goals at a time.
