Josette Mandela is an MBA trained author focused on teaching women basic financial skills.
Before she wrote 'Money is Freedom, a lifelong plan to achieving economic independence', she consulted in a variety of positions in the computer field.
Consulting companies that fail often abruptly lay off their consultants.
When Josette was laid off the first time she realized she should have paid more attention to what Mom said about saving for a rainy day.
Fortunately, her outstanding networking sills secured a new job the next day.
When Josette was laid off the second time, she decided to share her saving and budgeting knowledge to help other women get through life with less financial worry.
