In Refinery29’s Money Diaries, we ask women to share their salary, their take home pay, and their monthly expenses. The series always brings up more questions than answers: Why is she putting so much into retirement? Why can’t she afford a vacation? Why do commenters hate it when diarists let boyfriends pay for the check? In the podcast, we set out to answer those questions. Every episode, a diarist calls in with a money dilemma, question, or awkward situation, and our hosts help them figure it out all – without freaking out about their finances.
Alisha Ramos had it all — a cushy, six-figure tech job, a great work/life balance, the time and money to spend at the hottest restaurants in the city. But she left all that to start her own business, Girls Night In, and ended up taking a major pay cut because of it, sometimes making enough to just cover rent. Here, she talks about how much people don’t tell you about being your own boss.
