Ep. 198 — How Tiffany Turned The Budgetnista Into a Seven-Figure Business (Get Ready to Take Notes!)

Podcast cover
Read more

On today's show, Tiffany opens up about the revenue streams that make up The Budgetnista's seven-figure business. How does an influencer really make money anyway?

At this point, The Budgetnista's origin story is pretty legendary. When Tiffany lost her job after the 2008 recession, she started The Budgetnista, a financial coaching business, while living on her sister's couch and piecing her own financial life back together.

Through word-of-mouth she got new clients looking for help getting their budgets on track but there was just one problem — she often felt too guilty to charge them money for her services, knowing they were already struggling financially.

"I wanted to help as many people as possible without being a financial burden on them," she says on today's episode.

Starting a business without wanting to charge fees wasn't exactly the most obvious business choice, but she was determined to find a way to make it work. 

A decade later, The Budgetnista is now a multi-seven-figure business, despite Tiffany's mission to continue giving value away to her community for free and to never to charge the people who need help the most more than they can afford.

"I took the long meandering route to entrepreneurship and I took the route of building trust, building community and the truth is now 10 years in ... It still blows me away [that I've been successful.]"

How a Brain Aneurysm Became a Blessing

Podcast cover
Read more

In September 2016, Sharon Epperson was at the gym when she felt a relentless, migraine-like pain shoot through her head and neck. One S.O.S. call to her husband and several hours in the hospital later, she learned she was one of 30,000 people in the U.S. who suffer a brain aneurysm rupture each year. Two in five die instantly and African Americans are twice as likely as whites to suffer from one.

Sharon, who is the senior personal finance correspondent at CNBC, was one of the lucky ones. On today’s show, she calls the experience one of the great blessings of her life and shares her story with Mandi, including:

Her early days in rehabilitation when she had to relearn everyday tasks.

“That road had so much pain on it. There were people in those rooms who I know probably wouldn’t make it…I remember thinking I just have to look at the door straight ahead. If I look in these rooms I’m going to fall down.”

What it was like to return the air at CNBC after 13 months of rehabilitation.

“I am recovered in that I can do that job but I’m doing it differently and better than I’ve ever done it before.”

The financial choices she made that protected her family’s finances during her recovery and time off from work.

“There couldn’t have been a rainier day for my rainy day fund. The fact that I had an emergency fund was key. It meant I didn’t have to do what many people may have to do which is dip into a 401(k) or their retirement savings to pay for a medical bill.” 

The key steps Sharon says everyone should take to protect their families if they become disabled

—Build an emergency fund

—Sign up for disability insurance

—Secure a power of attorney
