Smart Money Mamas is a place for moms to talk and learn about money in all the ways it touches our busy, messy lives. No judgment, no shame. Just support that meets you where you are.
Moms have felt left out of the money conversation for far too long. From advice that doesn’t reflect the complexity of our lives to financial advisors and car salesmen that ask to speak to our husbands.
It’s time that changed.
Smart Money Mamas is on a mission to get moms talking about money. And not just the pretty wins, but the mistakes and struggles and stumbles. Uncovering the money mantras that are lifting us up and the ones that are holding us back. So that we can understand we are and start making positive moves forward.
We believe that until moms can talk about money without fear and find resources that speak to them, our own money stress will only be the tip of the iceberg. Because, unintentionally, we’ll continue to pass on bad money mentalities to the next generation.
Smart Money Mamas was founded in 2017* by Chelsea Brennan, then a new mom, as a place to answer money questions for her mom friends. It has since grown to include the voices of many mothers from all walks of life.
Here you’ll find information on everything from budgeting to investing, earning more money and mastering your meal plan; personal money stories from moms on their own struggles and successes; and a community that wants to reach their financial goals while still living a fun and fulfilled life.
*Site was originally known as Mama Fish Saves.
