Hey Sister! A Financial Plan for Smart Investing & Vacations with Emily G. Stroud


We are committed to helping you with practical matters in your life here at The Sisterhood, so we like to offer suggestions and help on financial health, knowing that this is an important need.  As summer approaches, many of us dream of vacations and memorable experiences with our friends, family, and children, but the question must be answered:  how do we prepare for them financially?  My guest, Emily G. Stroud, helps us answer this question.  Offering helpful tips and ideas, Emily walks us through what it looks like in the budget to put a priority on special trips and experiences.

Along with vacation advice, Emily also offers tips on smart investing as we plan and prepare for the future.  While some of these aren’t new concepts, they bear repeating, over and over and over again, because we all could use reminders on what is the wise way to handle our money.

Listen in and plan to do those FUN things with your people!

Leeana says beginning again is like opening your hands when all you want to do is clench your fists.
