Personal finance is something that many bartenders struggle with. It’s a pretty terrifying subject that many of us, myself included, don’t even want to think about. Most of us don’t make a lot of money and we live in places where everything is expensive. Our financial struggles are further complicated by an unpredictable tip-based income that is often delivered to us in cash. This all traps many of us in a seemingly inescapable paycheck to paycheck lifestyle.
It’s really difficult to save any money, and if we have some kind of emergency situation, we are forced to make difficult decisions. It’s hard to even know where to begin saving and moving towards more financial stability.
My guest today is personal finance and credit expert Sarah Brady. Sarah worked as a server in San Francisco for many years, and now she works to help people in our industry improve our financial wellness. Sarah writes for Credit Karma and Lending Tree, teaches workshops and offers one on one coaching to help build budgets, improve credit and buy affordable housing.
Check out our conversation in the player or wherever podcasts are found, and challenge yourself to try out one piece of advice that Sarah suggested. I guarantee you will thank yourself in the future.
Sarah will be sharing more tips on money management for industry folks on Wed December 4th. The event will be hosted by Jigger & Dash and sponsored by Woodford Reserve. Check out jiggeranddash.com for more info and be sure to check out our homepage for much, much more. I’ll see you next time!
