Thank you to Zelle and Mindy Kaling for a funny upbeat chat about how to not just survive the holidays but THRIVE! How does she do it?

Zelle wants you to be financially savy! To be successful, you need to be MONEY SMART! Two thirds (2/3) of American adults need more financial skills around budgeting, planning for your future and paying off their debts. Figuring out credit card bills, health care costs and mortgage payments is stressful for many people. Becoming a parent inspires many people to do a financial audit, figure out a plan and make a will.

Mindy’s TIPS for your financial future:

  1. STOP shopping online out of boredom. Only buy things you really want or need.
  2. It is important to not only save money but also to invest wisely.

Many women are uncomfortable to talk about money which is why Zelle wants to sponsor more conversations like this to normalize it!

This year her resolution is to be more healthy! She wants to lose weight and be healthier to live a long life with her children!
