The Quest for Financial Independence with Bola Sokumbi

There always has to be a why when searching for financial independence. Why do you want to want to save money, why do you want to buy a house, why do you want to change your career, why do you want to retire early?

Whatever the why is for you, it’s important that you know why because your why determines everything – how much you need to save, where you should live, what things matter to you, and your why also keeps you from competing with others.

Our guest on this episode, Bola Sokumbi, is a finance expert, author, podcaster, and founder of Clever Girl Finance discovered her why way back in college when she saved 100K in three years – that is no small feat. She did all sorts of things to save the money, stuff that you and I might think is crazy… but it worked. And now she wants to show you how you can find your why, create massive change in your life, and have some fun doing it.

What You’ll Learn

  • The steps Bola took to save 100K in three years
  • The money lessons Bola learned from her mom that helped her in her financial journey
  • Why Bola decided to write a book and the chapters she thinks you need to read ASAP
  • What’s one piece of money advice Bola wished every woman knew
  • How to achieve big money goals when they feel so far away

Align Your Investment Dollars To Support The LGBTQia+ Community With Jay Lipman

June is pride month, although I’d argue that every month should be about loving others no matter what they look like, what their sexual orientation is, or what their life story is. In my opinion, as long as you aren’t hurting anyone else, you have every right to be you, just like I have every right to be me. That may be my view, but I was curious, with the rise of an inclusive culture and social responsibility, how are companies and investors supporting the LGBTQia+ community.

My guest and fellow millennial is Jay Lipman, co-founder, and president of the Fintech asset management sustainable investing firm Ethic. On this episode, we’re covering a lot of topics including social responsibility investing and what companies are doing to support the LGBTQia+ community.

What You’ll Learn

  • Are we seeing a strong shift in companies towards better equality with LGBTQ workers or are we still just talking about it without any definitive action
  • How and why are companies aligning their investment portfolios to support the LGBTQia+ community
  • If you’re an investor and want to support the LGBTQ community, are there certain things you can be doing
  • What lead Jay to a career in social entrepreneurship
  • What are trends that are emerging in the social/sustainable investing space
  • What can we do as millennials with less cash to build a sustainable investing practice
