Mom’s Got Money with Cat Alford

Martinis and Your Money Podcast

I’ve been in the personal finance blogging and podcasting space now for over 8 years now and I’ve made so many great friends along the way. One of those friends is today’s guest, Catherine Alford. In my early days of blogging, Cat’s blog was one that I hoped to emulate and it’s actually because of her that I had a side hustle as a finance writer for a period of time. For years, I’ve followed Cat’s journey and desire to have a published book; and when I saw that her dream finally became a reality, I knew I needed to have her on the show to talk about her journey, why she never gave up and why you should check out her new book “Mom’s Got Money: A millennial mom’s guide to managing money like a boss.” Cat’s story is so inspiring and I hope it inspires you to never give up on your dreams as well.  For more information, visit the show notes at https://www.martinisandyourmoney.com/show-notes/moms-got-money-with-cat-alford

An Interview with Cat Alford of Budget Blonde

Listen Money Matters - Free your inner financial badass. All the stuff you should know about personal finance.

On this episode, we talk to Cat Alford of BudgetBlonde.com. She’s a personal finance blogger, writer, and a proud mother of twins. I met Cat when I first started Listen Money Matters and she’s been a huge help both in guiding me in the right direction with the site and being supportive of all the crazy things we try over here. She has a very interesting story on how she transitioned from a day job to blogging full time, life in Grenada and handling student loan debt. You won’t only find her on Budget Blonde as she somehow finds the time to also write for popular sites like the Huffington Post and Young Adult Money. Show Notes Budget Blonde – Cat’s awesome and very personal blog about being frugal, doing things DIY style and being smart with money.  It’s a great read! Be warned though, she’s not blonde anymore ;) FinCon – Financial bloggers conference. We’ll be there and so will Cat! Send us an email if you want to hang out! Million Mile Secrets – One of the bigger credit card churn websites that Cat mentioned in the interview. Smarty Pig – Where Cat stores her savings. She says it’s an interesting take on a high yield savings account. Ally Bank – Where Matt stores his savings. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
