The Moolah SHow
Helloha, hey there hey, glad you’re here! I’m Sonya C and this Moolah & Mocktails Show thingy is a pet project I conceptualized a few years ago (yeah, it’s been baking for quite some time in the ‘you-should-REALLY-do-this-THIS-year’ toaster oven, the postponementin’ of it all).
Bit About Me
I have a background in the hospitality industry, higher education, the financial literacy space (NOT an expert, or financial advisor), along with being a PhD-Journeyer, which has been a long, challenge-filled, very twisty, windy road 😩😩…hint, if you wanna make a quick buck, bet on whether she, me, yours truly, will ever finish her graduate program!!!
Bit About My Son
My millenial son, Anthony, majored in Information Systems and has dabbled around in the venture capital/financial investment world. He is currently starting up his own technology related company.
Enough already, how did we get here…to da Moolah & Mocktails Show?
Anywhoozywhatzit, he (the 90s kid) & I started a movie & drinks night (and being foodies, of course, we ended up adding delicious munchies 😋) when the pandemic started. My youngest son (repping for Gen Z) was also supposed to be part of the Thursday night watch-something crew. However, he’s gets up at the crack of dawn to train (we have an athlete in da house) and would fall asleep wayyyy too early to join in on the late night movie party shenanigans. We’re talking midnight, 1am, 2am (you get the drift) that the day-before-Friday (or technically the wee hours of Friday) ‘show’ would now be getting on the road aka started. Can’t remember all the reasons why/whacomes they would begin so daagone late but I’m sure the delayed, non-planning in the initial days were part of it.
Get there already lady
Ok, ok, just know you’re not supposed to rush perfection 😎. One night it occurred to me that Anthony and I, after each weekly sesh, would end up having cray cray talks about the same money related topics I wanted to discuss on my show (mind you, this was more than a year after we started our Netflix, Hulu & others tingy, ya know as I said sometimes a good idea takes time, what can I say 😳, you know a little about my track record now).
