103: EMPOWERMENT (even during a pandemic)
Pandemic or not, I don’t want to be in debt. And even though Covid-19 put a temporary halt on things, that doesn’t mean we’re powerless.  In episode 103, I share a few small steps to find and save money, even during  a pandemic.  To visit my blog go to https://www.thehappywhisk.com and to leave me a voice message click: https://anchor.fm/thehappwhisk/message PS: I'm not sure why but the above message link is only working on some platforms and not on other. My apologies. Stay safe. Be well. And I'll catch you in the next cast.
