Melanie Lockert: Episode GGF004

Melanie has what I consider to be an incredibly inspirational story. Deep in debt, for a brief to time on food stamps, and acquainted with “the struggle.” She found herself working for a non-profit and asking herself…is this it?

In this episode of Girl Gone Frugal (again) we discuss her journey from drowning in debt, to side-hustling ninja, to entrepreneur and co-founder of the Lola Retreat. A financial retreat for women. Use my affiliate code: SMCP to get $50 off your ticket. Just add the SMCP code in the promo code box.
