In Sara’s Voice:
“It’s really important to me to help women get that power back through simple things that we should have been taught as kids that most of us weren’t.”
“Instead of waiting to the end of the month, track expenses during the week. By the time the end of the month comes, you can look at your statement and be like, “I’ve already gotten all of this in here. Yep, everything matches up. It’s good.” It will just totally change your life.”
“When I say bookkeeping, it’s not only your personal bookkeeping or just keeping track of all your expenses, this could be businesses as well.”
“If your name is on an account - doesn’t matter what kind of account it is (credit card, bank account, savings, investments) - you need to have access to it and you need to be able to view the statements at any time of the day or night. That’s really step number one.”
“I think it’s really super important to forgive yourself for not taking action prior to having that conversation.”
