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. 140 — Here’s How Much You Should Have Saved by Age 30

On today’s show, we dedicate some time to questions from our listeners.

One listener wants to know how much she should save by age 30. We take her question on the show and actually reveal how much WE saved by age 30 ourselves. Here’s a link to the resource mentioned on the podcast, the JP Morgan Chase Guide to Retirement. The chart that suggests how much to save by different ages is on page 18! Also posting a screenshot below:

Another listener asks what’s worse — a voluntary car repossession or delinquent payments?

Lastly, we take a question from a listener feeling pressured to have a massive wedding.
