What we discussed on this episode:
On this episode of the podcast Stefanie shares how she found herself broke and living paycheck to paycheck in New York city and how an expensive visit to the dentist’s office was the awakening for her to turn her financial situation around.
She talks about pursuing her passion as an actor and having the experience of a lifetime but being limited by the financial instability of not earning enough and how she turned that limitation into an outlet to achieve financial success by deciding to start really paying attention to her finances and the type of life she really wanted for herself and taking a new approach to getting there.
She’s now transitioned into a full-time business owner with StefanieOconnell.com and she shares exactly how she went from acting to finance.
Some other things we touched on include business budgeting and diversifying your income.
