With all the craziness we’ve experienced in our world recently, whether that was because of school shutdowns or rising prices due to inflation, it’s tempting to believe that we’re no longer in the driver’s seat. But our guest today, Kumiko Love, who is also known as the Budget Mom, wants you to know that you have more control over your life than you realize. Her new book “My Money My Way” comes out next month, where she helps readers identify a uniquely personal plan that you’ll stick with, which will allow you to crush your money goals. For Kumiko, one of those milestones she achieved was paying off over $77,000 of debt in just 8 months early on in her financial journey and she also recently purchased her dream home with cash! During this episode she shares how you can take the experience and principles she learned, in order for you to take back control of your financial life.

You can keep up with Kumiko on Instagram, watch her videos on YouTube, join her group on Facebook, and don’t forget to pre-order her book “My Money My Way”.

  • Extra cash – And regardless of where you are on the path to financial independence, we believe in the responsible use of credit cards. It’s smart to utilize the additional benefits that credit cards offer- for instance the 60,000 points that come with the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card. That’s $750 when you redeem through Chase Ultimate Rewards! This is no joke- I’ve already done this myself which we discussed on a recent episode after I met the initial spending requirements of $4,000 over 3 months!
