Financial freedom is something that we all want, but might not know how to get. In this episode we’re talking to Melissa Rogers from Self-Made Mama about how to make work fit the lifestyle we want after having kids. It can be really hard to step out of the caregiving roles we feel like we need to be in, but doing something we love and being able to make our own income with the flexibility we want can be really empowering!
Throughout this chat, we’ll talk about the taboos around money and childcare, and the super important shifts in our mindset that can help us to grow and succeed. Financial empowerment isn’t just about money- it’s about us having the power to do what we want, and make money the way we want to. Melissa is not only a business owner, she’s also a mom, and she gets the struggles we often face. This was such an interesting and informative chat, so make sure to go give it a read and listen, and I’ll see you over at the UM Club Facebook page after to discuss!
