  • Shifting your mindset from one of scarcity to abundance—The amount of money Tiffany found herself in debt with was mind-blowing.

  • Get yourself a ‘Linda’Listen, Linda… we promise, once you listen to this episode, this is going to make so much more sense! Moral of the story when you’re going through it…Get you a Linda!
  • Get Good With Money—It is such a common misconception, especially in the BIPOC community, that we think “getting good with money” means earning a lot of it…but then we have no idea WTF to do with it afterwards. We associate building wealth with this “diet culture” where we have to restrict ourselves of all the things we need and want in life. Y’all, we promise you that cutting out your go-to iced macchiato latte every morning or canceling your Netflix subscription ISN’T going to help you build wealth. Listen to how Tiffany makes budgeting sexy😏…Yes, you read it right!
