I Quit My Job: Budgeting as a Single Parent with @clevergirlfinance

I Quit My Job: Budgeting as a Single Parent with @clevergirlfinance

Finances and Parenting!!! I got a chance to chat with Bola Onada Sokunbi of @clevergirlfinance about the challenges of single parenting and entrepreneurship along with this new sense of freedom of living in my purpose.

Things have changed over the last 3 months for me and my budget looks a lot different from when I was making six figures a year at my previous job. I used to shop at Target once a week – literally. But now, I am very intentional with my purposes and I have to pay attention to what I am spending. Recently I opened up my daughter’s savings account and this year, she wants to visit Hawaii!!!

Of all places, she wants to one of the most expensive trips yet, to the Aulani resort this year. But guess what, we have a budget and a plan for it! See how we are STILL going to save for our annual trip to Hawaii here! 

As always, I love you all. Thanks for your DM’s, messages, inboxes and checking on me. The journey continues….

Life after radio has me nervous and I’ve had to make a lot of adjustments. But I am happy and I’ve met some really incredible people over the last 2 months.  I’ve been networking and I am very optimistic about what’s in store fore me. So, this week, I’m just giving you an update on what’s going on in life.

A Talk with My Pastor

A Talk with My Pastor

“Quit Comfort!” Ohhh, so you mean, I have to leave my security blanket?? I’ll be the first to tell you that this entrepreneurship journey is not all that comfortable, but it’s necessary for me, especially when operation out of my purpose.

I sat down with @marlonfhall for this week’s video diary to talk about struggling to have faith (how much do I really really trust God) and what you need to quit BEFORE quitting your full time job. This message was sooooooo good. Click here for the full message.

Thanks Marlon!

Budgeting for Entrepreneurs: Finances

Budgeting for Entrepreneurs: Finances

Now that I’ve quit my job, I need to pay EXTRA attention to how much I’m spending AND bringing in. Being an entrepreneur is so not for the weary. It really takes working 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, SEVEN days a week. It’s all about your hustle, networking and relationships with like minded people. This week, I talked with Wealth Strategist, Jaelsa Ann and she had a chance to look at my own personal expenses, savings and investments. She shares with me some REAL advice. I’m not an over-spender, but here’s what Jalesa had to say about MY finances… Check it out here!

Me and my daughter Alani hit the road earlier this week for Spring Break! Not having a job was not going to stop me from giving my daughter THE ultimate vacation. So, I created a tight budget and we stuck to it. For REAL! While hiking up to the lighthouse at Palo Duro Canyon, we encountered a hidden message…
