I may earn commissions from the links in this post.When a goal-oriented person discovers the excitement and allure of financial independence, there is little that can stop them from reaching this huge milestone.
The intensity and results are multiplied when you have a married couple with a combined six-figure income working toward the same goal. This is a recipe for skyrocketing the net worth and savings.
To demonstrate this type of savings superpower, I’ve invited Jamila Souffrant on the show today. In 2016, she and her husband partnered together to save over $85,000 in just 12 short months.
And then … they did it again in 2017.
What are we covering today?
Jamila and I discuss:
- How she and her husband have consistently saved $85k per year
- What she’s doing with that money
- Why financial independence is such an important family goal for her
As a full-time employee, mother of two, entrepreneur and wife, Jamila personifies hard work and family dedication. Her passion for success is infectious.
