About Teairra Marí
At just under 30 years old, Teairra Marí has already had an interesting career. She comes from music royalty – her grandmother sang backup for Aretha Franklin. I know what you’re thinking, is singing backup really that big of a deal? You better believe it is! You don’t get to sing backup for Ms. Aretha without being amazing. So when Teairra’s grandmother told her to pursue music, she knew what she was talking about.
Teairra began recording in studios when she was 16, and that year was signed by Jay-Z to Def Jam records. They knew this girl was something special. Her first single, “Make Her Feel Good” did well on the charts, but unfortunately for Teairra, the success did not continue. Her first album sold almost 250,000 copies, but this just wasn’t enough for Def Jam and she was dropped before she could complete her second album.
She signed with a new studio and began work on a second album, but it was shelved after too many of the songs leaked. She opted to instead release mixtapes, featuring some of her singles as well as work with other artists.
All throughout, Teairra worked as a model and actress and was featured in a few music videos as well as two movies and a tv movie. Teairra Marí became more of a household name in 2011 when she was featured in the second season of Love & Hip Hop: New York, and then later as the main figure in Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood.

Megan is a 40-something government employee in the Washington, DC area. She got interested in Personal Finance when she got out of college and realized that her paycheck wasn’t going to go as far as she had hoped. Since starting this blog, she has managed to buy a house and make a solid start on her retirement goals, and hopes to help others do the same. Here is her story:
In 2007, I was a gainfully employed 20-something with no debt but not a lot of knowledge about personal finance. It was a co-worker’s comment about Roth IRAs that sent me to the internet, searching for information. It was then that I realized that I really didn’t know a whole lot about personal finance and that my current financial situation was due a lot to inherent frugal tendencies, generous family members, a fear of debt, and good luck. While that was working for me, clearly I needed a better plan.
While I had no debt, I was also pretty much living paycheck to paycheck and not worrying about going over budget (I say this as if I had a real budget) because I had an emergency fund set aside to cover any overages.
Except that’s not what an emergency fund is for.
So I did a lot of research, read a lot of blogs, and decided that I needed a plan. I needed to budget. I needed to know what I was spending my money on. I needed to prepare for the future.
I decided to create a blog not only to make myself accountable to others but also to share the knowledge that I gained along the way. I’ve learned so much from my fellow bloggers, and I hope that my readers can find something useful in what I have to share as well.
