003: Building Your Micro Empire with Jennifer Grimson
Play • 29 min

“You don’t need to be wealthy to build wealth”. In this episode, I brought in my good friend Jennifer Ives Grimson.

 

Jennifer was a single mother who lost everything...twice.  The second time, she rebuilt by creating small “empires” for financial independence.  She created over $1.4m in income-producing investments with nothing more than a W2 and grit.  In 2020, Jennifer created the Micro Empires Podcast to share her story and to pull back the curtain on the path to financial independence.

Let’s jump right into Jennifer’s story and find out how she built her micro empire.
