Shay talks about her time in foster care.
I just had a wonderful interview with Evelyn Polk of For a Child’s H.E.A.R.T. We talked about my experience in foster care, the things that Bigger Than Your Block, LLC is doing to educate youth about personal finance, my new book “All My Mistakes: Money tips for kids in care”, and the no-cost webinar this Saturday, “Money Tips for Foster Youth“, to celebrate Financial Education Month.
In case you missed it, click here and you’ll hear the whole thing.
Shay Olivarria will be the keynote speaker at this event on personal finance in Carson, CA.

I’m so pleased that I was selected to be the featured upcoming author at From a Writer’s Point of View for May for my first book Money Matters: The Get It Done in 1 Minute Workbook!
I have a great article posted about my work on the site. Typically, folks want to know about personal finance or my background in foster care. I can honestly say, this is the first interview I’ve done of it’s kind. If you haven’t seen it yet, check it out.
Here’s an excerpt:
There’s nothing like having your book printed up and you’re holding it in your hands when you realize that you have a “its” when you meant to have an “it’s” and you think about letting it go. Then you realize that for some people this book will be their first experience with you. They won’t know that you’re a genius that has traveled to 9 countries, went to grad school for business anthropology, and usually has impeccable grammar and syntax. They’ll read your book and think, “What kind of idiot can’t use the correct form for it is”?
Check out the interview and leave a comment. I’d love to hear what your thoughts are.
I’m really looking forward to working with the Network of Empowered Women. Join us Saturday, May 29th at the Rita Walters Learning Complex in Los Angeles for a timely discussion about healing your relationship with money.
Order your copy of Money Matters: The Get It Done in 1 Minute Workbook before the workshop or pick up your copy on site.
The audio companion to Money Matters will be available online soon.
See you there!
