Ep. 141 — Confessions of an Entrepreneur

Happy #BrownAmbition Wednesday!

On today’s show, Tiffany opens up about the pressures of scaling what was once a one-woman business into a juggernaut with full-time employees, benefits, and all the complications that come with it.

“It’s so much more than just the people who are involved. When I talk to [my employee] on the pone and I hear her baby crying I think oh my gosh it’s not just her. This has to work for all of us… There’s so many people are depending on this working. It’s a lot of pressure but it’s also a lot of fulfillment to be able to do this work.”

Also, on the show Tiff announces a special deal on the Live Richer Academy. Sign up at https://joinLRA.com!

Ep. 131 — These Atlanta Newlyweds Paid off $100,000+ of Debt in 12 Months

On today’s show, we have a truly inspiring story to share. Leo and Faith were about to get married when they attended pre-marital counseling at their church. It was then that they were encouraged to sit down and get honest about their finances and their goals as they started a family together. In total, they realized they carried over $211,000 worth of debt — a combination of both student loans and credit card debt.

Rather than give up, they rallied and made a plan to aggressively tackle their debt in the summer of 2017. Faith, a nurse practitioner, took on a part-time job working overnight 5 or 6 days a week. Leo, an occupational therapist, also worked a part-time job in addition to his 9 to 5.

As of May 2018, they successfully paid down $100,000.

They shared their story on today’s show. Tune in and hit us up on Twitter or Instagram let us know what you think about their story!
