127: Generating Additional Income Even For High Income Earners With Dr Nneka Unachuckwu
00:41:52
Meet Dr. Una! Dr. Una is the founder of Ivy League Pediatrics, a multi-site pediatric practice in Georgia. Over the last nine years, it has thrived and has been voted ‘Best of Gwinnett’ for four years in a row and rated 5 stars by over 250 parents. While building this, she developed a love for entrepreneurship and has since built many other successful businesses. Like many doctors, Dr. Una was ignorant, scared and felt like an imposter when she started out in business because she was trained to be a great clinician, not an entrepreneur. Over the years, she learned that the two do not need to be mutually exclusive so she embraced both worlds. As a result, she is able to enjoy the practice of medicine, develop her other interests and best of all, not miss time with her family. In 2018, Dr. Una founded EntreMD, a platform created to help physicians embrace entrepreneurship. Through conferences, online courses and coaching, she has helped many doctors build successful businesses so they can practice medicine and live life on their own terms. On this episode we discussed: - How she got into this space of helping high-income earners (specifically physicians) become entrepreneurs or improve their careers - Why physicians should become entrepreneurs - The biggest mistake high-income earners make with their finances - Some of the mindset blocks high-income earners have around earning even more money - Her own financial and business goals and more Books mentioned: - Rich dad, Poor Dad - 10x Rule Grant Cardone How to keep up with Dr. Una: - Stop by her website at entremd.com ❤ Get the Clever Girl Finance book: clevergirlfinance.com/book ❤ Join Clever Girl Finance: clevergirlfinance.com ❤ Follow on Instagram: instagram.com/clevergirlfinance

110: How Raegan Moya-Jones Built A $100 Million Business Against The Odds
00:51:10
My guest on the podcast today is Raegan Moya-Jones. Raegan built aden + anais while working a full-time job in ad sales and with only $15,000 in initial capital, and didn’t quit her 9-5 until they hit the $1 million mark in revenue. After working with a manufacturer to have prototypes made of the swaddling blankets, Raegan knew she was onto something after giving birth to her second daughter and realizing the nurses at the hospital had swiped all her samples. Without an MBA, Moya-Jones took a more grassroots approach to build the brand by going door-to-door to boutiques in her spare time to spark interest in her muslin blankets. In 2013, Prince George emerged from the hospital in aden + anais, subsequently causing the company’s site to crash from high demand. On this episode we discussed: - What inspired Raegan to write her new book - What it takes, How I built a $100 million business against all odds - The beginning of her story of how Aiden and Anais started - How she went from being a rebellious young woman, struggles with her mum, not having a high priced MBA to becoming the CEO of a $100 million business. - The issues women face and the stereotype placed upon us despite our ability to build incredibly successful businesses, raise children and more - all at the same time. - Her biggest challenges and successes building Aiden and Anais - Her tips for women to become more successful with money and in business How to keep up with Raegan: - Via her website at https://raeganmoyajones.com - Get her book, What it takes, How I built a $100 million business against all odds In it, she covers: - What it’s like butting heads with investors (or co-founders) - What to really do when you’re running out of money - Experiencing “mum guilt” and what to do with it (wanting to start a business does not mean you love your family any less!) ❤ Get the Clever Girl Finance book: https://clevergirlfinance.com/book ❤ Join Clever Girl Finance: https://clevergirlfinance.com ❤ Follow on Instagram: https://instagram.com/clevergirlfinance

104: Saving over $400,000 and pursuing early retirement with Michelle Ives
00:41:01
Michelle Ives is a long-time listener of The Clever Girls know podcast and she got in touch with me because Clever Girl Finance has been a part of her financial education and she wanted to share her incredible story with all of us! About Michelle Ives: Michelle is a copywriter and brand strategist for her own business, Wordy and Smith. She lives in Sydney with her husband, Andy, and together, they’re well on their way to having saved their first half a million.   Formerly a journalist, Michelle spent over a decade working as a published writer (and a few other odd jobs). She learnt the in’s and out’s of how to build (and market) a successful business through two startups, as their respective Head of Communications. Just like the company's lean marketing budget, Michelle had to learn how to manage her personal one much the same way.   Michelle has a goal of fully retiring by the time she is 35, living solely off of the passive income generated through her assets in savings, property, shares, and superannuation. This will allow her to travel freely, volunteer full-time for causes she is passionate about and write for passion, not profit.
