You may know her as the Money Coach, but we call her our Fairy Money Godmother — the incomparable Lynette Khalfani-Cox is our first-ever BA podcast guest! Lynnette is a personal finance expert, television and radio personality, and the author of 12 books (Yes. 12.) including the New York Times bestseller "Zero Debt: The Ultimate Guide to Financial Freedom." (Just in case you doubt her street cred, just know that Lynnette paid off $100,000 of credit card debt in 3 years!) She's an inspiration and she joins us to talk about how she made the leap from a 9-to-5 lifestyle to mega success as an entrepreneur. She also gets real about working side by side with her husband, Earl, and keeping their relationship healthy while managing their business. Don't forget we are doing an iTunes giveaway to a lucky reviewer! Leave a review and email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with a screenshot. We've got some great prizes!

In this episode, Tiffany tells you how to spot a life coach scam, Mandi calls for the end of World Star Hip-Hop and the ladies tell you how to manage your finances jointly with your partner. See more at http://brownambitionpodcast.com.
In Episode 2 of Brown Ambition, we tell you what it's really like to be the "only one" in the office. Tiffany talks about growing up in "Nigeria Central", Mandi tells you how she negotiated a 25% raise, and we both discuss the merits of simply knowing when to shut up.
In this episode, we serve up some simple tips to help you prepare financially for marriage (yikes!). We talk about what's buzzing: Serena Williams' epic defeat in the U.S. Open and why we don't care because she is still the best person EVER; and the shocking police attack on another tennis pro, James Blake. In this week's Brown Break, Mandi makes a desperate plea for the end of man buns and Tiffany seeks reprieve from street harassment (really, is that too much to ask guys?). We introduce an old-new segment called "Brown Brilliance". Last but not least, Tiffany tells you how to financially prepare for marriage (dun dun dun!). For more, check out brownambitionpodcast.com.
In our first episode, we explain what 'Brown Ambition' is all about and tackle the question we've both been asking ourselves — when's the right time to have a kid, anyway? Mandi explains what "white feminism" is all about, Tiffany calls for the end of the "Perm v. Natural" debate and both of us share our wins of the week. As if that wasn't enough, Mandi offers 4 key tips to save on rent and Tiffany serves up a key strategy for new business owners.
