B”H This Erev Shavuot I’m reminded of the following story and discussion I recently had with my students at Jewish Money Makeover. A story is told of a wealthy man who left an estate of close to $1 billion dollars. He also left two wills for his children. One will was to be opened upon his passing. The second will was to be opened 30 days after his passing at
B”H Ever since I launched the Jewish Latin Princess Podcast over 3 years ago, I’ve received countless questions on how to start a podcast. Fun fact: some of my podcast guests launched podcasts after they enjoyed being on my show! The amount of questions from aspiring Podcast Hosts increased even more after IZZY-Stream Media selected me as one of the Global Jewish 100 a few months ago. Every time someone asks me, “Should
B”H Looking for some good uplifting reads this quarantine? Look no more cuz these are my favorites of the “season.” I know I haven’t posted books here for a very long time (although I have on Instagram). It doesn’t mean that I haven’t been reading. It’s just that I went through ups and downs in my reading, and not much really inspired me when I read it, until this quarantine!
B”H I’m so excited to share with you all a recap of my daughter’s Bat Mitzvah! Yes, you saw her here, and now she’s 12 years old, a Bat Mitzvah! And what did she want for her special celebration? A Challah Bake at home with her friends led by renowned speaker and author Mrs. Rochie Pinson! It was so much fun and so meaningful! You can get her fabulous book, Rising: The
B”H As I reflect on the past whirlwind month of Tishri, and look forward to the less intense month of Cheshvan, I imagine sending a letter to G-d. Next year, would He mind changing things around a bit for us Jewish women? *** Dear G-d, After many years – generations, actually – of solid experience managing schedules – our work schedules, our children’s extracurricular activities, family activities, the Holidays, etc.
B”H I get questions on Personal Finance from women all the time, so I decided to put together Five Personal Finance Books Every Jewish Woman Should Read, AND I’m also making a BIG announcement at the end of this post! If you’ve listened to Jewish Latin Princess Podcast, you know that I’ve dedicated numerous episodes to interviews with women who have a voice in the personal finance space, or a
B”H It’s time for an overdue Summer reading re-cap! While I had a very busy summer, I did manage to read a few books. So here’s what accompanied me through the summer months: Feel the Fear and Do it Anyways by Susan Jeffers A must, ladies! I’m not sure why I hadn’t read this before, but I’m sure glad I did! In fact, I’ll probably read it again at some
B”H I am not fascinated with the lives of the royals. Not anymore. As a child and teen, however, I vicariously followed their weddings, babies and scandals captured by the paparazzis. Back then, it wasn’t just the British royals we followed. It was the Spanish ones, too, and their marriages with their royal cousins from Denmark and the Netherlands. While I have no interest in exploring the royals’ lives,
B”H Ever heard of the portmanteau of friend and enemy, “frenemy?” It refers to “a person with whom one is friendly, despite a fundamental dislike or rivalry,” or “a person who combines the characteristics of a friend and an enemy.” We’ve all had one, haven’t we? You’re trying to stick to a budget, and she tempts you with outings to the newest upscale restaurant. You’re about to end an unhealthy
B”H How many times was I told that there was nothing that could be done about my back pain; that there was no obvious cause of my pain, and that I would just have to learn to live with it? So, that’s what I did. The smorgasbord of treatments that I tried over the years include, but are not limited to: pain killers, chiropractic adjustment, Alexander Technique, acupuncture, Chinese cupping
