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.

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.

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.

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!



Mimosas With Eva Baker


Just before turning 16, Eva and her mom listened to the audiobook version of The Total Money Makeover by Dave Ramsey.  This helped her realize that planning and budgeting your finances is interesting and can be fun – especially when you’re young and haven’t had time to make many financial mistakes yet! Today, Eva is 20 and as she continues her journey into adulthood her opportunities are endless.



Guest Announcement: Reid Burroughs

This Monday I’ll be speaking with Reid Burroughs, a digital marketer with Really Big Tree. Really Big Tree is based in Phoenix and has just launched into Beta this year. With only six months into the first year of their life on earth, Really Big Tree has been trying to take root in the Valley through digital marketing and development services. Reid, is an integral part of Really Big Tree.

Reid sees possibilities. As a creative social media marketer always looking for new ways to reach out, communicate and inspire. Reid’s interest in people and helping them solve problems makes him someone you’re glad to have as a partner. Plus, he’s a taco aficionado.

When he’s not working in a startup (making nearly nothing) he works a part time job, hustles his ass to the max, and seeks relationships with others who are fully supportive of his dream. Reid says, “You have to be fully in it,” which means those supportive relationships have to be his rock.

Join me tomorrow for an in-depth look into the life of someone deep inside a tech start-up keeping his head and his comrades heads above water. Follow read and his journey on Instagram and YouTube.
