One of my goals for Confessions of a Boss Babe is to help empower other boss babes. When I started my blog, I knew that I wanted to have an interview section to help other ladies be seen and grow.
Today, I am excited to introduce Jacqueline from Mom Money Map. Jacqueline was kind enough to answer some interview questions for me.
Let’s meet Jacqueline!

Tell Me About Your Business. What Would You Like Us to Know?
I write about all things money:
● Earning more income including side, passive and quick income from home
● Saving more money including reducing everyday expenses and long-term debt
● Developing the optimal money mindset
● Reaching financial freedom and early retirement
● Spending frugally as a parent
Here are some of my blog’s most popular articles:

If you’re interested in accelerating early retirement, here is a reference sheet of my
recommended tools to kick start results.
What Made You Pursue Your Business? Was it Something You Always Wanted to Do?
I’ve always been passionate about making and saving more money and the FIRE (financial independence retire early) movement.
With the birth of my daughter, I became even more driven to retire early- to spend more time with my family.
I realized that other young parents might feel the same way. That’s how Mom Money Map was born.
Kids can be expensive. The idea of retiring early as a young parent seems out of reach.
The more I researched and the more actions I’ve taken towards building our funds, I’ve realized reaching early retirement as a young parent is possible.
What Does a Typical Work Day Look Like for You?
No day is the same.
As a start-up, I wear a lot of hats. Producing content. Marketing. Overall management.
I do try to prioritize learning something new for the business each day that I can apply immediately.
If You Could Give Women One Piece of Advice, What Would it Be?
When you’re starting a business, it’s easy to spend most of the hours in your day building it.
Don’t forget to take a step back and let yourself breathe. Disconnect and spend time with your friends and family.
You need that balance in your life. It’s through achieving that balance that you’ll think more clearly and build a more successful business.
If You Could Sit Down and Interview Any Boss Babe, Who Would You Choose and Why?
This is a tough question. There are many amazing women I would love to chat with. Right now, I’m reading Becoming by Michelle Obama. It’s an inspiring and insightful read thus far! I would love to interview Michelle Obama.
