Have a money or career question?
Happy New Year to all! Brown Ambition returns with fresh episodes (and a special NET WORTH edition!) on January 9.
In the meantime, we are re-airing our most popular episode of 2017 ? our interview with our favorite money and career expert, Lynette Khalfani-Cox aka “The Money Coach”. On the show, Lynette shares her best advice on how to negotiate on the job
Lynette went from a career as a journalist to an entrepreneur commanding $12,500 speaking fees, authoring over a dozen books, and crafting financial courses for consumers and businesses alike. Her website is Askthemoneycoach.com.
Her biggest tip? Know what your minimum salary requirement is before you even walk into an interview! And she has tips on how to find YOUR perfect number on today’s show.
Then, Lynette not only answers YOUR questions about managing the cost of college, she tells you personal lessons she learned after sending off her eldest daughter to college last year.
Like many kids in college, her daughter struggled to adjust and when her GPA dropped below the 3.5 minimum for her tuition scholarship, Lynette and her family were suddenly faced with a $50,000 out of state tuition bill. She tells Brown Ambition the unique and BRILLIANT way she and her hubby decided to tackle that hurdle and shares other tough lessons she’s learned about preparing her kids for college life.
Happy holidays, BA Fam! This is our last show for 2017 but we will be BACK with fresh new episodes starting Jan. 10!
On the Brown Ambition menu for this week…

Listener Brittany asks: Should I leave my financial job and move to NYC to become a writer?
Hey BA Fam! We hope you’re not going too crazy with all the holiday hoopla. We’re all on our grind at work so we can take a few days off to spend with family but remember to take some deep breaths, take it one day at a time, and be kind to yourself.
