Rank #5: 778: Lindsey Stanberry, Money Diaries
Today, we’re talking about Money Diaries: Everything you’ve ever wanted to know about your finances and everyone else’s.
It’s a new book out by author Lindsey Stanberry, who is the Work and Money Director at Refinery29, one of my favorite websites for all things; female empowerment, career, money, lifestyle, trends.
Money Diaries started as a series on Refinery29, where Lindsey would share entries from millennial women all across the country, how they were spending every single dollar, every single cent. The book was inspired from that and it provides up close and juicy insights into how millennial women are handling their financial lives, or not handling their financial lives. We also will talk about Lindsey’s own financial journey to saving over a $100,000 to purchase her first home, how she is striking a balance between motherhood and her career.

Rank #8: 798: Adeola Omole, 7 Steps to Get Out of Debt and Build Wealth
Today, I’m interviewing Adeola Omole on the show. She describes herself as a lawyer by trade and a money coach by choice. Her journey of achieving debt ZERO and building a community for women and money is the focus of our conversation today.
Raised by immigrants in a family of six children, Adeola watched her parents work hard but also pinch pennies. Seeing her parents’ financial struggles growing up, Adeola thought debt was a normal part of life. This led her to make her own money mistakes. By the time she was a young adult finishing her clerkship just out of law school, she had amassed $70,000 worth of consumer debt.
Fast-forward to today, Adeola and her husband are debt-free and building great wealth. They’ve even managed to pay off their mortgage. Adeola also has a new book: 7 Steps to Get Out of Debt and Build Wealth.
You can learn more about Adeola on her website adeolaomole.com, on Instagram at @adeolaomoleb, and on Twitter @AdeolaOmoleB. Her book is called 7 Steps to Get Out of Debt and Build Wealth. And for her free 10-Point Checklist for Buying Stocks visit adeolaomole.com (scroll to the bottom to find it!)

Rank #14: 927: The Budget Mom (Kumiko Love)
A few years ago Kumiko was struggling to pay down her debt. As a single mom, she knew that she needed to get out of the cycle of making minimum debt payments each month, but she had tried and failed to stick to a budget numerous times. So, she created a method that she could actually stick to. She calls this her Budget by Paycheck method and as she was using it to get out of debt, she started a blog to share her journey. That blog has now turned into a business that just launched its first physical product, the Budget by Paycheck Workbook™.
