Jenni Sisson is a freelance writer and editor with a distinct focus on personal finance and entrepreneurship. A notable contributor to platforms like Business Insider and Finance Buzz, she's also the voice behind the Mama's Money Map podcast.
Jenni's financial philosophy is straightforward: "Don't plan your life around your money — make your money fit the life you want." Her versatile approach to money management reflects this sentiment, especially as a mother of four. She's managed to provide for a larger-than-average family on a smaller-than-average income using strategies like budgeting, leveraging savings apps and couponing.
Beyond her regular writing gigs, Jenni is a serial side hustler. She has dabbled in various ventures, including mystery shopping, starting her own Airbnb and freelance writing on Upwork, rapidly transitioning from an industry newcomer to writing for major publications.
With her husband, Jenni transformed $9,000 in credit card debt into a cash-flowed master's degree, all within four years and on a family salary of $32,000. Their financial ingenuity also led them to invest in a 100-acre dairy farm via house hacking.
Jenni also teaches community-based personal finance and self-reliance courses. She resides in Utah with her husband, four spirited kids, and a Brittany spaniel.
Jenni earned her Bachelor’s degree in Linguistics from Brigham Young University.
