#99 Learning to combine your job and business with ALLISON BAGGERLY

Allison Baggerly

Allison is the founder of Inspired Budget. As a teacher and small business owner, Allison combined her passion of
teaching and finances to help others learn how to start budgeting. Allison’s passion for budgeting surfaced after she and her husband found themselves newly pregnant and under $111,000 worth of debt. They did not have enough money left over each month for daycare expenses, so they knew something had to change. It was during those years of sacrifice and paying off debt that she realized just how much she loved finances and taking back control of her money through budgeting. Now Allison is helping women all over the world get started with budgeting when they feel lost and overwhelmed.
