In this week’s episode of the Journey to Launch podcast we have Kenishia Mais, a Jamaican entrepreneur, Financial Educator and the visionary who founded ThrivingDollars. Kenishia was always a good saver. She started saving her lunch money in school & kept this habit into adulthood. But when she became the person her parents and other family members came to when they needed money, the pressure of being the family bank was overwhelming. It drove her to abandon her money habits and become a big spender so she wouldn’t have money when her family asked for a loan.
Listen to this episode to learn how Kenishia turned her life and finances around. She became a self-taught investor at age 21 and is now a financial educator spreading the financial gospel to others through her blog and business, ThrivingDollars.
In this episode you will learn:
- How to manage the burden of being your family’s bank
- Tips to empower family members to solve their own money problems
- Differences between investing in the United States and Jamaica
- Ways to invest in retirement and brokerage accounts plus so much more
