With so much going on right now (pandemic, job loss, holidays, etc.), how are we supposed to become financially fit? This is a question many are asking themselves as we approach the end of 2021, a year that rivals 2020 in terms of its difficulties. So, in this episode, I will be explaining the key to financial success and how to become financially resilient in the face of adversity.

Listen in as I share how to become an active participant in your financial knowledge, as well as why it is so important to be intentional with your spending. You will learn the benefit of being consistent, how to financially prepare for your future, and what you should be tracking in terms of your finances.
