Women of personal finance spotlight: Millionaire Mommy Next Door here to answer your questions

By Lynn Truong on 24 August 2008 3 comments

For this entire week (8/25 - 8/31), Jen from The Millionaire Mommy Next Door will be answering questions in our forums about blogging, personal finance, and entrepreneurship!

Jen went from working a minimum wage job as a college drop-out to financial freedom as a debt-free, self-made millionaire by age 40. Today she is the author of one of the most popular and inspiring personal finance blogs.

Please join Jen in our forums as she shares the story of her amazing journey to financial independence.

This interview is part of Wise Bread's spotlight on the Women of Personal Finance.  At the end of the interview period we'll publish the best questions and answers from the forum interview and post them on the homepage.   If your question gets picked we'll include a link back to your blog.  

About The Millionaire Mommy Next Door

Blog: The Millionaire Mommy Next Door

Blogger: Jen


In her own words:

We consider ourselves closet millionaires. Our family lives a typical middle-class lifestyle with one fantastic exception-- we only work when we want to. Financial freedom affords us free time. Contrary to popular belief, most millionaire households do not live the extravagant lifestyles that many assume. In fact, a millionaire or two may be living inconspicuously next door to you.


I want to share the story of our journey from minimum wage to financial freedom because I'm at a point where I'd like to give back. The financial industry is rarely focused on women – my intention is to offer a supportive community and a female perspective.


My blog isn't just about sharing my story. I've pledged my blog's profits (referral commissions from sales of my favorite books and advertisements) as no-interest microloans for small businesses operated by working, impoverished women in developing countries.

Jen's posts are always filled with equal measures of excellent advice and heartfelt encouragement.  Following her RSS feed is like having a personal wealth coach.  Check out some of her most popular posts.

You linked directly to some of her VERY best posts.  Thanks!  I'll be heading over to the forums ( and hopefully bringing some friends with me.)  This is such a cool way to feature women bloggers.  :)
