369 | “I Spent It All and Dad Picked Up The Tab” – How this investor changed her bad money habits? – Chat with Amy

Born in England to accountant parents, Amy was given great money advice growing up. And obviously, so did her brother.

Only one of them took the advice to heart though… and it’s not our special guest. ☹

From credit card spend sprees to climbing Mt Kilimanjaro, Amy lived life to the fullest!

So… what changed?

Why did she go from having no budget whatsoever to being a Money SMARTS advocate? Yes, you’ve read that right… she got her circle of friends on board with Money SMARTS too!

What would she get from doing that??

And… what are the lessons learned along the way?

Tune in to find out more!

p.s. Make sure to tune in to 18:04 minute where she shared an interesting story that happened in the middle of a surgery! #EpicStory
