One of the best things about our mastermind group is being reminded that whatever you’re going through financially, there’s likely a fellow Profit Boss® who’s gone through a similar struggle. Seeing someone who’s successfully beaten what you’re dealing with is why I love to bring you stories from people who aren’t financial gurus — hence this week’s Everyday Heroines episode!
Today, I’m speaking with Cassie Crossley, podcaster and IT professional, about her own journey to financial security. Cassie’s story is one of learning tough lessons, crafting a vision for the future, and maintaining the discipline to see it through. She’s had plenty of obstacles — two short marriages with financial troubles and lots of personal debt included — but she hasn’t let that stop her from achieving the monetary goals she set for herself.
Cassie and I talk about how she learned to budget the hard way, when her money troubles started, and how she has changed the way she approaches money management with her partners over the years. If you need some encouragement to create and stick to a plan for getting out of debt, don’t miss this frank and heartening discussion with Cassie!
