Hi, I’m Danetha.
Like all good things, Money & Mimosas began over brunch with the girls. Me and four girlfriends were at our weekly brunch date, and the topic of money came up.
Should you merge bank accounts as a newlywed, how do balance paying down debt with investing, is it smart to start a business and leave the comfort of a 9-5, and how do make enough money to afford avocado toast and a home in the hills?
But, the biggest question was why weren't we taught all this in school?
With an accounting background and a love for the finer things in life, I made it my mission to figure out how to make this money thing work for me, my girlfriends and every woman who wants to have her mimosa brunches and be financially responsible, too.
Several years later, Money & Mimosas is now a blog read by thousands of women from New Zealand to San Francisco eager to be rich, sexy, and confident. Our articles, workshops and live events provide inspiration and actionable advice on how to become financially independent. In one year, our readers paid off over $225,000 in debt and added over $100,000 to their savings.
I have been named a Top 40 under 40 accounting professional by CPA Practice Advisor, a next-generation accountant by Quickbooks, and a millennial thought leader by the Hong Kong Institute of CPAs. I am now a contributing writer for Entrepreneur.com, and my work has been featured in Elle, Cosmopolitan, and Huffington Post Live. Who would have thought that a bottomless mimosa brunch would create such a wildly exciting ride!
