I’M MYKAL

Like many Mommies, I wear multiple hats. Wife, Mommi, Personal Finance Influencer, Natural Hair Enthusiast, and creator of the 30-Day Guide to Debt Freedom just to name a few. My most gratifying duties include being a Mommi to a preteen that most of us call Moo Moo and being a wife to Durrell the founder of Brand of a Champion. Navigating newlywed life, blending a family, working fulltime, entrepreneurship, and building a legacy of generational wealth is tough! But, I created this platform to share my journey and inspire others to live in their purpose.

I am also the founder of Sweet Like Money. Sweet Like Money is a platform that I use to track my debt freedom journey while encouraging others in my community to live more financially intentional lives, build wealth and legacies for their families, and ultimately enjoy the sweet life of financial freedom.

I would love for you to join many on this journey through life so stay tuned!
