21. How You Can Get Better with Money in 2020 with Journey to Launch’s Jamila Souffrant

Thinking about how you can get better with money in 2020? You’re in luck because for today’s episode, I had a wonderful chat with Jamila Souffrant, money expert and creator of the Journey To Launch podcast and blog!

Jamila is a Certified Financial Education Instructor (CFEI), savvy budgeter, and launched Journey to Launch to teach what she’s learned over the years about all things personal finance.  

Jamila was born in Jamaica and grew up in Brooklyn, where she learned the concept of hard work and the value of money from her single mom. At 22, she bought her first real estate property and recently, she and her husband saved $85,000 in a year! Yes, ONE year! 

The Journey To Launch podcast was named one of “27 Podcasts You Need To Start Listening To In 2018″ by BuzzFeed.  Jamila is also the resident financial expert on a weekly segment on News12, the most watched local TV news-station in NYC and has been featured in other notable media outlets such as Money Magazine, TIME, Business Insider, Refinery29, CNBC, ESSENCE Magazine & CBS. 

During the episode, Jamila walks us through:

  • Her journey from Jamaica to Brooklyn, NY 
  • The money habits that helped her buy her first property at 22
  • How expanding your circle could help you reach your financial goals
  • How to embrace your unique, personal finance journey
