In this episode, we had the pleasure of interviewing Bethany Winston, owner, and Editor-in-Chief of Kidding Around Greenville, as she shares valuable insights on setting and attaining financial goals.
Personal and Business Financial Goals
Bethany opens up about her personal financial goals, which include purchasing a home with her husband. After living in church housing for 14 years, they finally achieved their dream of buying a house next to their closest friends. Additionally, Bethany and her husband aspire to secure a comfortable retirement without burdening their children with financial responsibilities, including providing debt-free college education.
On the business front, Bethany discusses the rebranding of her company as “Kidding Around Media.” Her future plans entail expanding the brand beyond Greenville, aiming for Columbia, Charleston, and Charlotte. However, she recognizes the importance of maintaining the quality of content across cities and is open to adjusting expansion plans to ensure a healthy work-life balance.
