In this episode of Money Tales, our guest is Naseema McElroy. Naseema found herself nearly a million dollars in debt, working as a nurse. She knew she couldn’t out-earn her financial ignorance. In less than three years, Naseema became financially smart and debt-free. She is now focused on making her finances work for her so that she can spend time on the things most important to her — raising and sharing amazing learning opportunities with her two daughters, without diverting progress toward her financial goals.
Naseema is a published author and the founder of Financially Intentional, a platform about personal finance and living life intentionally. She discusses how taking control of her finances has enabled her to overcome bankruptcy, divorce, and break the cycle of living paycheck to paycheck. She shares her lessons along her path to help others benefit from the freedoms of financial independence.
Outside of encouraging people to get their financial act together, Naseema is a mother and Labor and Delivery Nurse. Though making six figures for years, she struggled with money. By shifting her mindset around money, being consistent and intentional, she has paid off $1 million in debt and grew a six-figure net worth in three years without living in deprivation.
