Janine Nicole Rogan – MY PENNIES, MY THOUGHTS
WHAT DO YOU MAKE/SELL? TELL US ABOUT YO’ SELF.
I sell financial peace of mind. I believe you can have the lifestyle you want without stressing about money. Your finances are all about balance and while getting them in order can seem like a daunting task once you’ve taken control of your finances you will feel freer than ever! You can have your cake and eat it too!
HOW LONG HAVE YOU HAD YOUR BUSINESS?
I’ve been writing for over 4 years, but it’s only been recently that I’ve started creating products and booking speaking engagements.
HOW DID YOU GET STARTED?
A friend of mine took a personal finance class at University and shared a book with me. Once I started reading it, it sparked an interest. From there I started a personal finance blog to natter about my findings and I just kept writing, and writing and writing. I was taking my accounting degree in University so it complemented my blog nicely.
WHO OR WHAT INSPIRES YOUR WORK?
Making a difference in the world. People get so stressed about their finances and being able to help them get their financial footing in order feels really good. When I get emails from people who have taken my advice and they are in a better place financially I get the warm fuzzies.
WHAT DO YOU DREAM FOR YOUR BUSINESS IN THE FUTURE?
I’d love to be able to make a difference in individuals lives. Whether it’s helping them with their personal finances or talking taxes with entrepreneurs I’d love to be able to grow my business to a full-time gig. I really enjoy speaking and sharing what I know with people so I’d love to engage in the community more through speaking events!
WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORM AND WHY?
Twitter! I love the conversations that happen there and it’s a great way to share information.
HOW DO YOU PICK YOURSELF UP WHEN THINGS GO WRONG?
I think I always try to remind myself of all the good that has happened in my life. There are always going to be setbacks but sometimes those setbacks turn into opportunities. I also try to practice gratitude on a daily basis.
WHAT’S ONE THING NO ONE KNOWS ABOUT YOU? GIVE US AN INTERESTING FACT!
Oh I hate this question. Hmmm…. I guess something interesting is that I don’t like bananas…. Something about the texture.
IF YOU COULD HAVE ANY SUPER POWER WHAT WOULD IT BE?
I think the ability to fly, I’d like to get places faster.
