    Lightning Round

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

    I really love to cook including baking and I’m really good at it and I love entertaining.

     

    2. Who inspires you the most and why?

    So I’m just gonna pause for a second because I just went to a conference and have a little quick story.

    Someone asked this question at my coaching conference where I got certified. Who’s someone you admire and inspire and he gave us 30 seconds to think of it. He asked how many of you said it was you? Of course, no one did.  Everyone’s like, whoa.

    So I prefaced that because I don’t automatically think of myself, but I’m trying to intentionally appreciate and admire myself not in an arrogant way like I’m better than you, but why wouldn’t I choose to be inspired by myself? That’s something I’m working on.

     

    3. What books are you reading now or have read and loved that you’d recommend?





    Atlas of the Heart: Mapping Meaningful Connection and the Language of Human Experience by Brené Brown







    The Antiracist Business Book: An Equity Centered Approach to Work, Wealth, and Leadership by Trudi Lebron and Arlan Hamliton

    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?

    I really think the first tip is to allow yourself to believe that you can do it, whatever it is for you  just allow yourself to believe it and allow yourself to want it without guilt.
