In This Episode
With her thriving business, career, and accomplishments, Tonya is a picture of success and influence. However, her strength lies not just in accolades, but also in being transparent about her vulnerabilities. In this season finale of the Get Loved Up podcast, Koya Webb talks to financial educator Tonya Rapley about balancing motherhood, sisterhood, and entrepreneurship, and why going through the trouble of showing up for all three is worth it.
“Be very intentional about the time of motherhood journey you want to have. For me, I knew I wanted to have a nanny. I knew I wanted to keep my career. I set it up that way to where when my son was two months old we were interviewing nannies.” – Tonya Rapley
