This 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.
Melanie started blogging about her debt in 2013 to keep herself accountable during the debt 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.
This week Michelle Jackson and I chat it up. She’s self-employed, runs a sick entrepreneurs group on Facebook called the DONE society, writes a lot, Marches and stands up for her fellow women, and looks for a good time. In short, Michelle’s kicking major ass and I’m delighted to share my conversation with you.
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.
Braiden is a Phoenix native and coffee lover (read addict). She attended Grand Canyon University where she received a Bachelor’s in Entrepreneurship and Marketing. Now, she is a North Phoenix Realtor, bringing joy and guidance through the sale and purchase of real estate. In her spare time, she can be found exploring the beautiful state of Arizona, drinking too much coffee, or enjoying quality time with family and her boyfriend, Bryan. She also enjoys nerding out to business/personal development podcasts, blogging about being a girl boss, and connecting with other entrepreneurs!
Braiden’s episode will premiere on January 2nd. Stay tuned to iTunes and Soundcloud for updates.
“Take the risk now, go after what you want, and enjoy the life you create for yourself.”
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.
In episode 2 of Monday Morning Mimosas we discuss the life of a ghost writer. The pitfalls, the exciting stories, and the celebrities involved. Listen in as Jennifer Lawhead, a private ghost writer, bares it all.
I’m SUPER excited to announce the lovable and hard-working/ass-kicking Chonce Maddox as our first official guest on Monday Morning Mimosas. We’ll be discussing “How being a single mom has shaped me into who I am today” among many other things whilst surrounded by mimosas.
Chonce is a financial lifestyle blogger who openly discusses in hardships growing up poor, and after having her ADORABLE son Jordan, living on welfare while helping her family survive. She’s a first generation college student and runs a debt blog entitled My Debt Epiphany. “This blog not only allowed me to share my unique story, life lessons learned, and my perspective with others, it also opened up the door to a whole new life.”
I’m excited to discuss how she came to be the woman she is today, what helped her break the teen mom cycle, and how she accomplished so damn much being under 30. Stay tuned for December 5th‘s release and more updates throughout the month!
