Listen To The Full Interview:
Bola Sokunbi does not have rich parents. She didn’t have a sugar daddy and she made an average income. However, she was able to save $100,000 in just over three years because she did have a goal.
She said it was a game.
How many would take on that challenge?
I don’t think I’ve had quite as much fun talking about savings as I did with Bola. We laughed about just how influential parents can be – when they want to – in the lives of their children.
We chuckled about Bola’s first exposure to credit card tactics.
I guess that shouldn’t be funny, but her story ends well so we can laugh about it now.
However, Bola’s accomplishment is no laughing matter. Unless you picture her laughing all the way to the bank. On this podcast Bola shares her tips for keeping expenses low, understanding the magic of free money, and how she turned a hobby into a hustle that pushed her over the top.
She was a natural born or threat-induced saver. Depending on how you look at it.
Not everyone is.
Bola’s encouragement works for all types. Especially if you’re not a natural saver. I also loved, loved, loved that she equated her approach to saving to what others can use to dump debt.
That’s the goal.
You can tell from her pictures on her site, CleverGirlFinance.com, that Bola likes nice treats. She loves fashion. Saving is the priority.
Is debt freedom your priority?
