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….

Mom Attends Son’s School for Donuts with Dad

Mom Attends Son’s School for Donuts with Dad

She’s wasn’t going to let her son miss out on Donuts with Dad just because dad isn’t around. Yvette Vasquez from Fort Worth, Texas, made a second trip back home after learning about what was happening has her son’s school, to put on a semi-disguise. She sorta became ‘dad’.

I don’t know about you, but not only was she courageous, but I’m sure her son was just as proud.
