I am so inspired by Tonya Rapley. When her financial life was most out of order in 2013, she started a financial health blog. She didn’t need the confidence of past successes to start helping other people… and soon, her financial advice for women went viral!
Now, she’s been named the “New Face of Wealth Building” by Black Enterprise Magazine. Yaaasssss!
BIG thank you to Tonya for allowing us to share this content with our tribe! #goodgirlcollective #feelGOOD
Tonya is smart, beautiful, kind and spreading magic daily! Don’t believe me go check her out for yourself! I feel so blessed to have the opportunity to share her important financial information with all of you.
You’re going to LOVE her approach to helping you reach your financial goals (and in some cases set your financial goals).
Her new book, The Money Manual: A Practical Money Guide to Help You Succeed On Your Financial Journey
was actually included in my first Hello GOODie Box!™ and those who purchased it can’t stop talking about all of the gems she drops.
Thanks again Tonya for sharing your valuable information with our tribe!

Here’s her story of the lessons she learned in her first year as an entrepreneur. See the full article here.
“On September 5th I celebrated one-year “entrepreneurversary” as well as my most profitable month to date.
When I first started My Fab Finance, I had no idea it would become a successful blog, let alone my full-time job!
Thanks to wonderful coaches, teachers, and mentors, I was fortunate enough to become a full-time entrepreneur in September 2015. Despite my success, I am reminded that 8 out of 10 business fail within the first 18 months. I’m committed to being one of the two that succeeds in their first 18 months so instead of marking the occasion with an elaborate celebration, I traded it for reflection and planning.
During my reflection time I honed in on the lessons I learned over the past year and created this video to explore and expound upon the lessons learned my first year as an entrepreneur.
In short over the past year I have learned:
- You need support
- You can’t say “yes” to everything
- There’s more than one way to have occupational freedom
- Multiple revenue streams are critical
I’m still learning what make sense for my business and lifestyle. I’m finding ways to marry my goals with my ultimate vision of helping you create sustainable change in your life. I look forward to another year of learning and growing.”

WOW, how often do we say yes to things we really don’t have time for… just because we feel like we “should?”
Confident ladies say yes when we feel a “full body heck yes!” and no when it’s a no.
Also… isn’t it cool that Tonya started her blog before she thought it would become anything?! She had no idea it would be successful!
It makes me think… just start doing what you’re passionate about. Don’t wait for the perfect circumstances! Just go for it.
