Another incredible thing happened recently. Bola of Clever Girl Finance hit up my DMs on Instagram and asked if I could tape an episode of her “Clever Girls Know” podcast. She wanted to talk about my stint in her 6-month accountability program.
I said “YESSS!!!”, of course.
Bola’s one of my sheroes and money mentors. I stumbled across her Instagram feed about two years ago and got hooked. It was an honor and pleasure to talk to her via Skype.
She called at 10 p.m. my time, 10 a.m. her time. Bola noted that it was the first time we had actually had a real-time conversation. I couldn’t believe it!
It was as if I already knew her. Her voice is so familiar becuase of all of the webinars, live calls and podcasts I’d listened to. Plus, she’s so easygoing and relatable.
I had just gotten home when she called. I told her I was tired and asked her to excuse me if I broke out into song due to deliriumm. She giggled.
Bold told me what she planned to ask during the recording and tested the audio. Then we got started. I could have gone on and on. I’m fired up about my debt-free journey, and Bola’s the cheerleader rooting me on. It was a great convo. We talked about the limiting beliefs I’d learned growing up and my plan to change my family legacy.
It was 11 p.m. when we finished. She thanked me for joining. I thanked her for the invitation. She said she didn’t want to keep me up any longer. I joked that I’d probably sit on my futon and watch another movie with Clint Eastwood or Robert Redford. She laughed as I explained that I’d developed a strange propensity for watching films with handsome, old men. LOL! But I digress.
This was my first interview about my debt-free journey. I hope I can continue to share tips and give encouragement through other outlets.
Bola and I hope this episode with inspire others to take more control of their finances and kick debt to the curb. Check out the interview below.
