Hey everyone! This is one of earlier episodes but one of my most favorite, an audience favorite and one of the most important discussions, regarding taking back our money power. I believe in our journey as stepping into our power as Filipinas, shifting things generationally and just living a more authentic, freed life, we have to debunk money myths, talk about what financial mindsets have been passed down generationally, and what are actions we can do to be more financially literate and strategic in society. I believe this is important for racial, economic progress, uplift our communities, set up wealth for your own descendants, and live a life from scarcity to abundance! I also give quick updates on what’s been happening with my life and ALL THE AMAZING THINGS COMING UP THIS YEAR.
