About our Guest: Allison Baggerly
Allison is the founder of Inspired Budget. She has combined her passion of teaching and finances to help others learn how to start budgeting.
Allison's passion for budgeting surfaced after she and her husband found themselves newly pregnant and with over $111,000 worth of debt. They did not have enough money left over each month for daycare expenses, so they knew something had to change. It was during those years of sacrifice and paying off debt that she realized just how much she loved finances and taking back control of her money through budgeting.
Now Allison is helping women all over the world get started with budgeting when they feel lost and overwhelmed.
