Meet Kara Stevens, the founder of The Frugal Feminista, a NYC-based personal finance and personal development company committed to helping women live life on their own terms unapologetically.
After climbing her way out of $65K worth of student loan and credit card debt, and building up her financial reserves, Kara soon saw the link between personal power and financial freedom; and wanted to inspire and educate women around the world to do the same.
She is also the author of Heal Your Relationship With Money, Unmasking the Strong Black Woman, and The Happy Finances Challenge (forthcoming) Don’t Let Him Touch Your Assets.
What we discussed this episode:
- How her mom’s personal experience around men and money impacted her own money story including how she started hoarding money as a result.
- What she did to pay off $65,000 in debt and how she was able to overcome her negative mindset around money by testing out the theories that had been impressed upon her about money to determine was true and what was not.
- We also talked about how going through this deep assessment of her money beliefs and her experiences with money (including seeking therapy) changed her life.
