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.

Why The Small Things Matter + How to Handle Them

In Faith

I was participating in a mastermind group one day and my mentor shared a story about how we need to be cognizant over the small things in our lives because they can derail us. She shared two examples to illustrate her point. The difference between a motorcycle that is upright and traveling safely is a pebble, because over a certain rate of speed a small thing like a pebble hit the wrong way can result in a motorcycle accident. Also, she shared that periodically a large airplane can crash because a bird interfered with the flight mechanism. This is exactly…

How to Stick With Your Financial New Year’s Resolutions

In Finance

Disclosure: I’m excited to be working with Ellevest to start this conversation about women and money. I may receive compensation if you become an Ellevest client. It is the beginning of 2018, which means it is New Year’s Resolution time.

Therefore, let’s make this new year truly a new year for you to live the life that you were called to live….
