    Ep 58. How this woman created a $2 million subscription business

    This week, we’re talking to Makaela Richardson of Free The Fresher about creating this business as a student in London.  

    Originally from Bermuda, Makaela moved to the UK at 18 to pursue her college degree.  If you don’t know, London is expensive, and as a student, it’s even worse! Makaela couldn’t find any program that would provide school supplies and living expenses at an affordable price, so she decided to create it herself!    

    Now, at 24, her business has processed over $2 million

    Sierra Howard of the I Don't Do Budgets Podcast talks about how she went from 9k in debt to secretly paying it all off. 
    Sierra talks about how she started developing a really bad spending habit in college and how it got out of control.  It got to the point where she was actually embarrassed to talk to her partner about how much debt she was in.
