Choosing Financial Freedom in a Nontraditional Way with Sierra Scacco

Episode Summary

Most of us work hard at having financial freedom, paying off debt and paying attention to how we save our money. But not many of us do things in a nontraditional way. We tend to stick to what we know works and what is safe.

In today’s episode, I had the pleasure of interviewing Sierra Scacco, a scaling coach and entrepreneur who made a bold and nontraditional decision with her husband and children that had significant financial involvement. 

Sierra shares her inspiring journey of starting her business while caring for her young son, and how she transitioned from copywriting to coaching. She also reveals a major life change she and her husband made, which involved renting out their home and living in a travel trailer. 

Sierra gives insights into the financial considerations behind this decision and discusses their debt situation, including student loan debt, car loans, and medical debt. Her story is inspiring and helps us gain valuable insights on taking calculated risks and managing finances on your entrepreneurial journey.

In this episode we share:

  • How Sierra made a nontraditional decision to live in a travel trailer to be closer to her husband’s work and avoid the high cost of buying a new house
  • Started her own business as a scaling coach after leaving her initial career as a copywriter
  • Prioritizing being debt-free, avoiding student loan debt, and managing their other debts, such as car and medical bills
  • The ways in which making unconventional decisions can lead to exciting opportunities and financial freedom
