Here’s a little inspo to get your weekend off to a productive and boss lady start! @emilyweiss started with a blog and built it into an empire. @glossier
Every Friday we will feature various women with a story that inspires. Whether it’s rebuilding her life after challenging times or building an empire from the ground up. Who are some women you’d like us to feature next Friday? #featurefriday
Today’s quote is from George Burns. It says to never stay in bed unless you’re getting paid for it. It’s really easy to stay in bed and forget about our daily woes, but if we want to make a real change in our lives, we have to get up and start the day, literally and metaphorically. I know that this is something I struggle with.
What type of information does an Investment Funds Advisor require?
Typically, information regarding investments held, number of dependants, income and expenditure details; savings and investment planning needs.
Anyone else having a weird week? July flew by and despite the world being in utter chaos, it was a pretty good month.
Then August came around and BAM! I’m having trouble sleeping. I’m battling anxiety. And that familiar friend self-doubt has come to visit.
Which is actually pretty interesting timing since we’re currently in Week 4 of my live 6-Week Fix Your Finances Masterclass and the theme is Mindfulness.
It was actually really helpful to go through the lessons with my students this week and discuss the importance of self-care when it comes to money management. I think I needed to hear it as much as my students!
Going back to self-doubt, it’s been something I’ve battled internally for years.
Part of what attracted me to personal finance is it never gets boring (to me at least 😂). There’s always something new to learn. But on the other side of the coin, sometimes you can feel like you’ll never learn it all or it’s a big knowledge mountain whose peak keeps growing upward. Self-doubt is ever present.
I know I’m not the only one who feels this way, so as a reminder to you and I, you know more than you think you do. Give yourself some credit. Cut yourself some slack. Be kind to yourself. Becoming more knowledgeable and building your financial confidence takes time and is a journey, and you’re not alone as you climb up that mountain! We’re all climbing up it too, just at different times, speeds, and places.
That being said, one effective way to kick self-doubt to the curb is to continue learning. Pick up that book. Read that blog. Listen to that podcast. Sign up for that course! You’ll be glad you took action instead of letting that self-doubt linger.
With the lockdown slowly been lifted across different cities, weddings and other ceremonies are gradually becoming a thing.
These festivities usually come with demands to buy "Aso-Ebi" and other ceremonial wears, and if you're not careful, you'd end up spending a lot of money buying an outfit that you probably would not wear again☹️.
So here's a simple hack for you: Have a monthly Aso-Ebi budget and stick to it!
There's no shame in saying NO💯
Fun tip: Aso-Ebi is called different things in different African languages, what is it called in yours?? School usss🔥

Here’s my progress to maxing out my HSA, Roth IRA, and 401k for 2020. I can’t believe I’ve invested $15k this year!
When I found out about Roth IRAs earlier this year, I immediately did a lump sum contribution for the annual limit.
My HSA and 401k contributions are deducted from my paycheck. I’m set to max out my HSA at the end of August. My 401k will be maxed out at the end of the year. This will be my first year maxing out my HSA and 401k.
On this first Finance Tips Friday, I wanted to discuss dividends and their importance regarding the company. Some investors purely invest in high dividend yielding stocks as it is mostly a guaranteed income and this is a great method to passively invest over time. IBM and PNC have been considered great dividend yielding stocks, but there are numerous other stocks that have high dividend yields as well out there that I encourage you all to research about. After all, who would not want free money? I’ll be back with more fundamental analysis and news next week. If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions, join me in the comment section below.

I hope my analysis is of good use to my followers, but it is up to YOU to make smart investment decisions, and I hold no accountability for your investment decisions.
Happy Money talk Friday y’all✌🏼Growing up I always used to find myself short on cash, despite making decent income. Most of what we do with our money everyday is unconscious. A few years ago, I was able to identity 6 such behaviors that have been keeping millennials broke. The more aware you are of your behaviors, the faster you can reach your financial success!
Check out my latest YouTube video (link in bio) to find out how you can reconsider those behaviors and live a financially thriving life! 🔥🙌🏼
Crossover into 2020. I was ready to hit the ground running and looking awesome as I did. Looking the part was extremely important. Dress like You have somewhere more important to go after! Despite all that 2020 has been ( yes people I know) one of my goals just came true. The first episode of FINANCE WITH JACINTH DROPS TODAY!! I have always wanted to share what I know with everyone. I am elated I have the opportunity to. Link in Bio people! Remember to share and subscribe. Also if there are any topics you will like me to treat in the upcoming episodes please comment down below.

The middle class is getting wiped out...
Every time something like this happens, a huge amount of wealth is shifted from the poor and middle class to the rich.
The poor and middle class’s spending habits aren’t sustainable...
College, house and medical care has significantly risen over the years while wages have remained stagnant.
The middle class is buying their way into the middle class lifestyle through debt.
Whether you like it or not, it’s going to happen...
I know which side I’d rather be on 🥴
What’s your thoughts?

Don’t let ppl rush your process. Keep that job and use your free time to create a side hustle that can free you from having to work a job everyday 🙏🏾

When my husband and I first decided that we wanted to become debt-free, we were scared, frustrated, overwhelmed, and completely confused about how to get there.
I knew that our entire lifestyle had to change because we were NOT in control of our spending at the time.
The way we interacted with money had to take a complete turn. But we were up for it!
That’s when my husband and I started to study the habits of debt free people.
🤔 What were they doing that we weren’t?
🤔 What steps did they take?
🤔 What do they eat?
🤔 How can I become friends with them?
I read books, blog posts, and listened to podcasts.
I asked my friends somewhat uncomfortable questions to determine if they held all the answers.
Over time, I realized that people who have become debt free all have 10 habits in common and I'm sharing ALL of them with you over on inspiredbudget.com.
Click the link in my bio to read the full article (especially if you want to adopt some of these habits!).

The most important lesson that I’ve learned is that the rich value time over money 💰
They’ll outsource as much as possible to free their time so that they can spend time on the things that they enjoy.
What’s a lesson that you’ve learned from the rich?
