My story began in the 80's ...

I was born on the beautiful island of Jamaica and grew up in Brooklyn, NY. Growing up we didn’t have much, but my mom always instilled in me a love of learning and adventure. Like many, I took the traditional route post college. I got a 9-5 and thought I would stay there until I retired. It was a well-paying Corporate gig, but I wasn’t fulfilled. I commuted nearly 4 hours round-trip and the work became monotonous.

On my commutes to work I would fill my time listening to podcasts. I began hearing more and more about the Financial Independence Retire Early F.I.R.E. movement and it piqued my curiosity. Could this be possible for me? Was there an option to not wait until retirement age to retire?  

I started Journey to Launch to chronicle my own personal journey to financial independence. What started as a blog now has transitioned into a podcast with over 2.5 million downloads and a monthly audience reach of 200k audience members.

A FEW FUN FACTS

To know me is to know this…

I'm on a mission...

…to make financial independence accessible to all. Knowledge creates informed decisions. Representation creates inspiration.

What would your ideal life look like?

This journey is more than the money. Freedom is all about living in choice. I want you to choose the life that you desire and believe that it is possible for you.

I'm proud to say that, to date I've accomplished a lot...
