Our Hosts, Amber & Erika
Amber Sims grew up with a value-oriented (aka cheap!) father who taught her very early on to budget and stretch a dollar. As such, she’s had a love-hate relationship with money her entire life. A lawyer by trade, Amber’s true passion is empowering people through taking difficult or intimidating information and making it accessible, enjoyable, and understandable. Having formerly worked as a prosecutor, Amber saw firsthand how money and financial resources, or the lack thereof, could easily change the trajectory of a person’s life. She currently lives in the suburbs of Dallas with her three kids and is a purveyor of virgin and remy bundles of all textures, colors, and shades.
Erika Brown started working in corporate America when she was 20, and built a career of almost 25 years in Marketing and Product Management. From the time she was a child, she vowed that no one would know more about her money than her. She recently left the financial services industry to try her hand at being a stay-at-home mom. Erika lives with her husband and two daughters in suburban Dallas, TX where she enjoys chicken on the bone as much as possible.
