An Interview with Cat Alford of Budget Blonde
- Written by Andrew Fiebert
On this episode, we talk to Cat Alford of BudgetBlonde.com. She’s a personal finance blogger, writer, and a proud mother of twins.
I met Cat when I first started Listen Money Matters and she’s been a huge help both in guiding me in the right direction with the site and being supportive of all the crazy things we try over here.
She has a very interesting story on how she transitioned from a day job job to blogging full time, life in Grenada and handling student loan debt. You won’t only find her on Budget Blonde as she somehow finds the time to also write for popular sites like the Huffington Post and Young Adult Money.
