Founder and CEO of Clever Girl Finance

My name is Bola Sokunbi, founder and CEO of Clever Girl Finance. I am a Certified Financial Education Instructor (CFEI), money expert, and 4x best-selling author of the Clever Finance Book Series and Choosing To Prosper!

I am also the recipient of the 2021 Financial Education Instructor of the Year (FEIY) Award from the National Council of Financial Educators.

I'm on a mission to help women ditch debt, save money, and build real wealth.

Growing up, I was the last of four children and the only girl. My father was the breadwinner, and my mother was a stay-at-home mom.

As time went by, my mother who got married really young at age 19, began to notice certain things about herself and within her community of friends that she wasn't too thrilled about.

For instance, my mother realized that she didn't really have much insight into our family finances because my father managed all the money.

She also began to feel like she wanted to be able to make her own financial contributions towards our household and she also wanted to be able to put money aside for herself.
