Sometimes life doesn’t go according to plan.
We think things will go perfectly smoothly and life decides it has other plans.
That’s exactly what happened to today’s guest, Jessica Garbarino.
Today’s guest is the founder of Every Single Dollar, Jessica Garbarino. Jess helps single women kick ass with their money, pay off debt, build up a savings account, or just live a more intentional life. Her work can be found at EverySingleDollar.com.
Jessica originally set a goal of paying off $56,000 in 2 years. She was well on her way and making amazing progress when a family member needed help. Jessica pushed pause on her intense debt pay off to take care of her relatives. After some serious financial setbacks, she regained her confidence, cleaned up the debt, and started helping other women do the same thing.
In this episode we talk about why women shouldn’t wait until they are married before thinking about their money, how her grandparents inspired her to be debt free, going through a foreclosure, the realization she came to about not needing material stuff, why she chases experiences over things, and why she believes we should prioritize cash over cards.
