What We’re Chatting About This Week
Thank you so much to everyone who's reached out to us and supported me and my family over the past few weeks – we've survived the Thomas Fire and we had a new baby! Everyone is healthy and fine, but you can listen to our harrowing (with the fire) and delightful (with our new baby) story here.
We're back to our regularly scheduled episodes now, and today I'm thrilled to speak with Jamila Souffrant. She's truly inspirational – not only does she write about personal finance, but she walks the walk as well. She realized she didn't know much about money when she started out, and she made it her mission to become more informed about money.
Now, Jamila is a Certified Financial Education Instructor, so she knows her stuff. In 2016, she and her husband saved over $85,000 and this year they're on track to save $93,000. That's incredible! She has a lot to share with us today, so you definitely won't want to miss this episode.
