What I Learned From Failure + My New Podcast

The 4 Lessons I Learned From Failure + My New Podcast

In Entrepreneurship, Faith

I don’t know how many of you know, but prior to giving birth to my twins, I had a podcast. Matter of fact, I launched that podcast while I was pregnant. Some of the positive and uplifting messages I heard when I interviewed guests, at times, reminded me to just keep putting one foot in front of the other and to keep going because God was watching over me. Those messages were so inspiring. That is why it hurt so much when I stopped the podcast. I had so many episodes recorded with amazing content, but as a new mom…

Do You Need An Emergency Credit Card

Do You Need An Emergency Credit Card?

In Finance

Imagine receiving notice that a Catagory 4 or 5 was going to make a direct hit on your community and the authorities issued an evacuation. What would you do?  Would you stay or would you go?  The thought of escaping imminent danger is necessary, but at the same time how would you pay for it? As I was sitting with my sister trying to frantically look for $700-$1,000 flights (before the airline companies were shamed into reducing the cost), looking up pet policies for the airlines, and evaluating highway evacuation routes for which roads had the least amount of traffic,…
