What We’re Chatting About This Week
Welcome to episode 108 of the Personal Profitability podcast! Today’s guest is someone else I met at FinCon (yes, FinCon really is that awesome! :)) – Lynnette Khalfani-Cox! She has a really unique and interesting background, has been on national talk shows (like Oprah!) and has helped a lot of people get out of tough financial situations (including herself).
Lynnette’s money tips are so valuable, and this episode went a little longer than usual, but I promise you’ll find her tips well worth the slightly longer episode!
