We’re kicking off the Worth Listening Millionaire Series! Over the next couple of months, Worth Listening host and Certified Financial Planner Lauryn Wiliams, will be interviewing millionaires on the podcast so we can hear their money memories and what they did to reach that coveted millionaire status.
The first guest on the series is Jackie Cummings Kosk. She is sharing her story of how she overcame poverty, divorce and single motherhood, to reach financial independence and retire early from her corporate job while still in her 40s, all while making less than six figures a year.
Jackie is the author of the book, “Money Letters 2 my Daughter”, which was a 2013 winner of the Excellence in Financial Literacy Education (EIFLE) Award. In 2015, she was officially recognized with a Congressional Commendation for her accomplishments in the field of financial literacy from the U.S. House of Representatives.
She now focuses on her life’s work of financial education and following her dream of creating a financially literate society. She is a life-long learner and is currently pursuing her master’s degree in Personal Financial Planning and Financial Therapy.
Jackie is going to share with us the impact that always trying to run from poverty had on her life and what she did after the pivotal moment of deciding she never wanted to feel financially ignorant again. Her poverty to millionaire story is so encouraging because it’s one that anyone can relate to. Her story will help break down the barriers you have to believing it’s possible for you to become a millionaire and retire early too..
