    Hard-earned money lessons from one serial entrepreneur {Money Memoir}

    Monique Malcolm: I know many of you are grappling with the key themes Monique and I discussed. We talk about different ways to break through money ceilings as an entrepreneur (hint: I love hard work…but it doesn't always have to BE hard work!). Then we delve into how Monique found herself in $35k worth of debt + how she halved debt that in just 6 months!! We talk about the EXACT moment she knew something had to change, the tools she used to organize her money, and the mindset shifts that had to happen. Valuable for everyone — whether you deal with debt or not.

    Cait Howerton is a Millennial Financial Planner who is savvy, smart, real, and relatable.

I loved this mature and thoughtful conversation.

    Plus, we delve into too-often taboo topics like the impact of mental health on money (including her recent diagnosis), and the similarity between dieting and budgeting.

    What it really takes to support your family as Single Mom + Solo Entrepreneur

    It was a delight to interview the tenacious Toi Smith, a Business Strategist and Creator of the Game Changer Fund for visionary black women. I have long admired her online. She opens up about what it’s really like supporting four boys as a solopreneur and single Mom, all the ways gender roles in her family were untraditional throughout her childhood, and how she figured out (and raised) her rates! Toi has done a lot of therapy-fuelled money work as a single parent and black woman raising her family without child support, and it shows.
