Barbara Sloan Tipped Finance - Investor Mama


Hi, I’m Barbara, writer of Tipped and owner and coach for Tipped Finance. I built a career in the Service Industry and throughout that time I made every financial mistake possible. I’m not a Stock Broker or Certified Financial Advisor, however I know what it’s like to live on a tipped income and dig out from under my own mistakes. I also know what it looks like to build real wealth and get very good with money. It doesn’t need to be complicated but it does require stick-to-it-ness.

Lightning Round

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

I used to do racoon rescue. I used to have baby racoons in my house.


2. Who inspires you the most and why?

The girls and women in Iran. I’m a big advocate for women’s rights and I believe when women have more autonomy, more money, the world is a better place.


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?

Be kind to yourself. You can screw up a lot as both a parent and a money person and still recover. Be gentle to yourself there is always a third option.
