Washington Post Personal Finance Columnist Michelle Singletary joins the show to discuss the coronavirus financial relief package. The $2 trillion relief package passed the House on Friday and passed the senate earlier in the week.
Michelle Singletary often mentions how her "Big Mama" was so great at saving money that it was like breathing to her grandmother. The syndicated Washington Post columnist shares that wisdom with her readers each week. In this episode, Michelle not only discusses how "Big Mama" was able to raise her and four other grandchildren, she also explains that the best things grandparents or other kin can give the kids they're raising are love and security.

#166: Michelle Singletary learned everything she knows about money from her grandmother. Well, okay, I shouldn't say "everything" that she knows. After all, Michelle also has an MBA from Johns Hopkins University. She writes about personal finance for the Washington Post. Her nationally-syndicated personal finance column, The Color of Money, is published in more than 100 newspapers nationwide. She's written three financial books. Oh, and guess what? Her column was nominated for a Pulitzer. Michelle has been learning, thinking, writing, researching and speaking about money management for decades. Yet the most important education she received, she says, came from the lessons her grandmother taught her. Today, Michelle joins us on the Afford Anything podcast to talk about what she learned about financial independence, and her views on the FIRE movement.
