Hi all, and welcome back to Working Women Wednesday. It’s been three months now since I started my amazing series celebrating the accomplishments of moms out there who earn six figures, are breadwinners, and/or are millionaires (psst – know someone who meets this description? Drop me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can interview them and feature them on the site!).
I have a lot of readers who are new to my site, who might not have been around back when I started my very first interview. So I thought this summer weather would be a perfect opportunity to kick back, relax, and bring you a recap of the amazing moms I’ve had the honor of featuring on my site. From doctors to Wall Street moms to freelancers to teachers; breadwinners on a part – time income to those making hundreds of thousands a year; moms from halfway across the world; moms just starting in their careers (or in motherhood) to those toward the end – I’ve had it all featured here!
Three Months Of Amazing Moms
Mama Fish Saves – The amazing Mama Fish kicked off the series, sharing her story of being an awesome breadwinning, six figure Wall Street mom. Her husband stays at home with their adorable little boy, just like my husband does with our three boys. Check out her interview to learn more about how she got started in finance, and her experience with a “party bus”! You can also connect with her over on Twitter.
Hannah Rounds – The next interview was with the awesome Hannah Rounds, mother of two, freelancer, and breadwinner of her family while her husband is a student. She used to earn over $100k per year as a data scientist, and now she freelances for 20 hours a week making $70k. I loved how she’s the breadwinner while still making time to be with her family through working part time – awesome! Check out her interview for more about how she does it, and be sure to connect with her on Twitter.
Hatton1 – The awesome Hatton1 was my third interview – it was our mutual friend Physician on FIRE who suggested we get in touch. And I’m glad he did, because she has a great story to share. Hatton1 is an OB-GYN who owns her own practice and considers personal finance to be a hobby (just like I do!). She also has a donkey! Swing by to learn more, and pop on over to Physician on FIRE or the White Coat Investor forums to say hello.
Make Smarter Decisions – Vicki was my fourth interview – a teacher who was on the cusp of retirement at the time we chatted (now she’s retired!) Her story is a fascinating one. She’s always been the breadwinner/higher income earner, and shares some insight into managing kids and work. Stop by her interview to learn more, and connect with her on Twitter!
She Picks Up Pennies – Penny is a breadwinning teacher and a soon to be mom. She blogs, side hustles, and does graduate work, all while teaching full time and expecting her first child very shortly. Her and her husband paid off $50k in debt in two years on two teaching salaries, and currently save over 50% of their income. Check out more about her story here, and connect with her on Twitter.
Supertasker – Supertasker is a doctor in St. Louis and is a six figure, breadwinning millionaire. What’s interesting about her family is that they received an inheritance, which accounts for almost half their net worth, She works regular hours in an academic center, and saves $100k per year. Check out more about her story here, and connect with her on Twitter @supertasking.
Get Money Wise – Cath is an Austrailian mum (not mom!) who is a senior manager in marketing and sales, working mostly in financial services and travel. She’s the mother of two, and talks about how she’s working to find a balance between work and life. Sometimes financial success just isn’t worth the sacrifice of your personal life that it requires. Here’s her interview, and of course you can stop by Twitter to say hello,
Temple Bo Clair – Temple is an amazing woman – a retired police captain who is both a millionaire and was a six figure earner prior to her retirement. After succeeding in a traditionally male-dominated field, Temple’s gone on to help others by teaching them about financial literacy. Her story is here, and you can also find her on Twitter.
Wish I Could Surf – WICS is a 44 year old mom of a nine year old daughter, who has reached financial independence and retired early at the end of June. She amassed about $1.5 million in assets while being a single mom for most of the past nine years. Looking to become financial independent? Check out more about her story here.
Ashley – Ashley is a Sourcing Manager with two young boys, and is the family breadwinner. She’s always looking to expand her career, has an MBA (like me!) and shares her story about how her husband is supportive of her career. If she has to jet off to Asia for a meeting, he’s right there taking care of the boys. Learn more about her story here.
Ms. Bonnie MD – Miss. Bonnie is an academic dermatologist over in Long Island, and is another soon-to-be mom! Interestingly she worked for Morgan Stanley in IT for four years before applying to medical school, and she’s working toward financial indepdencne (but not necessarily early retirement) so she’ll have the freedom to choose what to do with her time. Find out more about her story here, and pop over to her site (or podcast!) to say Hello.
Drsan1 – Drsan1 is another doctor – a 30-something hospitalist with three kids, and she works 7 days on/7 days off. She’s looking to reach financial independence at 55, and saves 20% of her income. She shares part of her story about being taken in by a so-called financial advisor, before learning more about personal finance and investing.
