134: "My sanity is more important than keeping up with appearances." Old money, chosen family, and a purposeful life with Rachel Hernandez
Thanks to your support on BuyUsBoba.com, we've invited Best-Selling Author, Real Estate Investor, International Speaker, Podcaster, and TFAW Project community member Rachel Hernandez as a special guest for our bonus episode!
Rachel shares her family history of 'old money,' coming to America thanks to the Immigration Act of 1965, and being shielded from poverty at a young age. She shares how she tries to balance work and family (despite the influence of her workaholic father), defining her chosen family, being financially independent from her parents, how she probably would've made for a bad trophy wife, and much more.
