SQUAD!!!! Get excited! I am so happy to introduce you to one of my mentors and someone that I admire and respect so much: Jamila Souffrant of the Journey to Launch Podcast! I have been following Jamila and her journey to financial independence for about 3 years, and I feel so blessed that she took the time to sit down with me.

Jamila Souffrant is a podcaster, writer and founder of JourneytoLaunch.com where she shares her journey to reach Financial Independence while helping others do the same.

Jamila is considered a go-to financial thought leader in the personal finance field and is the resident financial expert on a weekly segment on News12, the most-watched local TV news-station in NYC and has been featured in other notable media outlets such as ESSENCE, Refinery 29, Money Magazine, CNBC, CBS, Business Insider and more. The Journey To Launch Podcast was also named one of “27 Podcasts You Need To Start Listening To In 2018 by BuzzFeed”.

Jamila and her husband saved $169,000 in two years and are debt free besides their mortgage. She is also a mother of three young children and lives in Brooklyn, NY.

In this episode we discussed:

The importance of owning your story
How to silence the hater in your head (AKA our CAVEWOMAN!!!)
Our good ole friend imposter syndrome, and how to move past it
