Mimosas With Nadeera Mamadieva

11149294_916879368363747_5320656546361173867_nThis week I’m sipping cocktails with Nadeera of Flower From Lover. Nadeera hails from
Russia and arrived in America just last year. The idea of placing flowers into a beautiful box filled with macrons started off as a hobby and today is blooming into a bustling business. Just recently Flower From Lover became the official floral sponsor of Miss Scottsdale, Miss Phoenix, and Miss Maricopa County. If that still doesn’t have you convinced on her level of skill, listen in as we discuss the boxes themselves and how Nadeera plans to grow.

If you’re interested in checking out more from Flower From Lover, you can visit them online at http://www.flowerfromlover.com, follow along on Instagram at @flower_from_lover, and find Nadeera on Facebook.

Here’s a video I did for Travel Foodie Mom where I discuss the Valentine’s Day Box I mentioned in the podcast.

Mimosas With Melanie Lockert

Melanie started blogging about her debt in 2013 to keep herself accountable during the melanieheadshotdebt payoff process. In total, she had $81,000 in student loan debt. After paying the minimum towards her loans for five years, she graduated in May 2011 with $68,000 left. She paid off $68,000 in four and a half years, $30k of that in 2015, after doubling my income. As you may have guessed, her debt payoff process led to an entrepreneurial career filled with storytelling, writing, educating, public speaking, and inspiring young millennials along the way.

In my conversation with her on this episode of Monday Morning Mimosas we take it to the moment she graduated grad school worked crappy jobs and how she turned it all around to be the incredible female empowered entrepreneur she is today. Check out Melanie on deardebt.com, follow her on Twitter @deardebtblog, and enjoy more of her writing on rockstarfinance.com and CentSai.com.

Mimosas With Brandon Erickson

This episode of Monday Morning Mimosas is a little unorthodox. Today I’m talking with Brandon Erickson. He’s a longtime BFF, brother, fellow nerd and a millennial jumping into the throws of entrepreneurship.

On Monday Morning Mimosas we discuss entrepreneurship and how many of us get started and become successful, but it’s also important that we have conversations with people who are just in the beginning stages.

Entrepreneurs are hard workers, typically working 50-75 hours a week trying to make it. Most of us make it, and some of us do the 50+ hour grind for quite some time. Working as hard as we do, it’s important to have hobbies and a life outside of that life. Brandon and I discuss the perils of dating as a hobby in the digital age and how it affects our lives, and nerd shit.

Enjoy this off-beat podcast on the life outside of an entrepreneur.

Mimosas With John & David of Debt Free Guys

John and David have a total of 13 combined years in the finance industry and gathered $51,000 in credit card debt as two thirty somethings living it up in the early 2000’s. Today, they’re debt free, run a very successful blog, IE Debt Free Guys, and focus on sharing their story with the Queer community.

Their success didn’t happen overnight, in fact, it took at least ten years in total for them to get where they are today. Having taken quite some time to write an important book for the basic adult, they finished it, they conquered it, and share their story on how they started their business, the roadblocks encountered, and the struggles they still face as business owners.

Here’s my interview with one of my favorite business couples.

Guest Announcement: David Auten & John Schneider

I’m really excited to announce this guest(s)! John and David, The Debt Free Guys, will be premiering on Monday, January 9 on Monday Morning Mimosas.

John and David have a total of 13 combined years in the finance industry and gathered $51,000 in credit card debt as two thirty somethings living it up in the early 2000’s. Today, they’re debt free, run a very successful blog, IE Debt Free Guys, and focus on sharing their story with the Queer community.

Having taken quite some time to write an important book for the basic adult, they finished it, they conquered it, and share their story on how they started their business, the roadblocks encountered, and the struggles they still face as business owners.

When I first heard of Debt Free Guys, I reached out to them for a blab I used to host with CentSai. Our friendship continued on after that through supporting one another online and giggling over chocolate and wine (also online). Not knowing the full extent of their journey when I first met them, made me geek out because they’re so polished, professional, and both speak with such confidence. I’m delighted to share my interview with them on Monday, so stay tuned!
