Hi! Welcome to the site!

I’m Danielle and I believe that everyone can live a life that makes you feel a million dollars on any budget, which is the entire purpose of this blog!

Everything I publish on The Million Dollar Mama is designed to inspire you to live your best life, whether that be ways to make money, save money, get healthy, or just live your best life in general.

A bit more about me:

I live in San Diego, CA with my partner. I have an obsession with food and also run a food blog called Went Here 8 This where I create new recipes. 

I’m currently the CFO of a small company here in San Diego, and am also a huge lover of personal finance. My goal in life is the live a life of freedom, which financial independence will provide. 

I do love to travel, and I’ve traveled some, but not nearly as much as I would like. Here are some of my favorite places:

  • Singapore
  • Sydney, Australia
  • Paris, France
  • New York City
  • Iraq (ok, this is not one of my favs, but it was such an interesting experience I had to throw it in)
  • Vancouver, BC
  • Venice, Italy
  • New Orleans, LA
  • Curacao

I’m also a huge personal finance nerd. I’m an accountant in my day job and just love to make spreadsheet and look at numbers and all that fun stuff.
