Tiffany Aliche is also known as the Budgetnista and her mission is to make life-changing financial education accessible to women worldwide. She’s been featured on MSNBC, The Today Show, Forbes- and earlier this year she was instrumental in a new law that passed in New Jersey that will have a massive impact on financial education. We also dive into her history with money and how even though she was raised in a household that prioritized money discussions, she still made some costly mistakes that left her broke before climbing out of that debt. Now, she has already helped over 800,000 women worldwide collectively save more than $100 million, and pay off over $75 million in debt, purchase homes, and transform the way they think about their finances.

Hi- I just finished listening to the episode with Tiffany Aliche and two things such me. First, I guess it is just hitting me just how much of the world buys thing “on credit”! She talked about not having purchased a couch or bedroom set “on credit”. It has never occurred to me to do this! If I don’t have the cash to cover something, I simply don’t buy it. That is not to say I don’t have a credit card -of course I do and since it gives me cash back on almost all of my purchases, I use it for absolutely everything – BUT I pay it off (automatically deducted from my checking account) each and every month – am in my late 50’s and have never paid a cent of interest to a credit card company. Second point is related – I was surprised about how she talked so much about “your debit card”. I simply don’t get why anyone would use a debit card to pay for things when you can use a credit card and get cash back for each purchase! Thoughts???
Avid listener, but wanted to say that your interview with Tiffany Aliche was stellar to listen to! She speaks with such compassion and conviction, it was really a joy to listen! As always, you were great. Thank you for hosting her on the podcase!
Thanks for the kind words Kendell! We agree- she’s amazing and the compassion she has for those in need of financial literacy is tough to match!
I absolutely loved this episode with Tiffany Aliche! I got some great tips from her and plan to check out her website. I especially loved her story about her ice cream day and the dollar that went to the water man. I am so using this with my five year old :). She seems like such a dynamic person!
Haha, such a great story right?! I can totally see myself trying out her Dad’s tactics with my girls who love to ‘wash their hands’ (play in the sink). I should also expect to be told that ‘I don’t LIKE YOU right now!’ 😉
Super insightful. Thanks for having Tiffany join on this one!
