Bola Sokunbi: Create the Alternative

Are you ready to ditch debt, save money and build real wealth? If so, you’re in for a treat this week because that’s exactly what our guest, Bola Sokunbi of Clever Girl Finance, teaches. Not only does Bola have her own podcast on personal finance, she’s also the author of the book Clever Girl Finance, a book designed to teach you how to save, budget, invest and manage your finances so you can build real wealth.

Bola gives some great advice and helpful money tips as we talk about her own money story. In this talk, we cover the good, the bad and the money practices Bola uses when she needs to shift a bad money habit – because as she says, “We all have at least one bad money habit.”

Join us as we spill all the tea on this, plus more controversial topics such as the concept of privilege and opportunity, and how your time and health are your most important assets – yes, even more important than money.

This episode is brought to you by Purpose 2 Platform, a 20-week business accelerator and mentorship program that will get you clear on HOW to package your PURPOSE, communicate your PROMISE to your ideal audience, choose the best PLATFORM for your personality and lifestyle and create a PREMIUM offer.

Through this program, you’ll receive accountability and support in a dynamic community designed so you can finally make progress and be ready before you need to pull that trigger on what’s no longer serving you.
