Breadwinning, Six Figure Women – Sunday Brunch Cafe

Good morning and welcome to my award nominated Breadwinning, Six Figure Women series!

Yes, that’s right, I said award nominated. I’m honored that this series has been nominated for a PLUTUS Award (basically THE financial blogging award) for best series. I’m so excited that female breadwinners, and wealthy/high earning women, are receiving this recognition. Of course, all the other nominees are amazing as well! I’m looking forward to FinCon in just a few weeks, where not only will I learn about how to bring better content to YOU, but I’ll also get to go to the award ceremony. Cross your fingers for me!

So grab a cup of coffee, sit back and relax, and let’s get to know Sunday Brunch Cafe.
