Tiffany Aliche ‘The Budgetnista’ Making Moves

Tiffany Aliche, better known as ‘The Budgetnista’ describes herself as a preschool teacher/tomboy/travelnista/social butterfly/chatterbox turned financial coach, speaker and author. A passionate teacher of financial empowerment, the New Jersey native earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration from Montclair State University and passed up a career in corporate America to teach undeserved youth in Newark, NJ.
Tiffany believes that the purpose of life is to live a life of purpose and that’s why she started her own financial consulting company called CLD Financial Life LLC where she helps others master their money.
What does your work entail?
I specialize in teaching fun and engaging financial literacy under the name “The Budgetnista”, for clients like American Express, Columbia University, Princeton University, The Boys and Girls Club, Mary Kay, Newark Housing Authority, public schools and the like. My new book, The One Week Budget and I have also been mentioned in Essence Magazine, USA TODAY and various other media outlets.
Are you living YOUR dream?
While I was still in college I decided that I wanted to live a life of service. My favorite part of what I do is that I’m able to help people. I’m also a classic “social-butterfly chatterbox” and I LOVE meeting new people, talking and traveling. My business allows me to do all of that, as well as afford me a tons of freedom. So yes, I am truly living my dream. Ultimately my goal is to secure a regular spot on a TV show as the go-to-fun-financial-tip-girl!
What’s your definition of success and how has your journey been like to where you are now?
My definition of success is seeing one’s Personal Legend (dream) through to completion.
I learned that there are three keys to entrepreneurial success:
1) Crystallized focus
2) Extreme hustle
3) Positive attitude/energy
If you can clearly identify your dream, are willing to move heaven and earth to realize it and can maintain a healthy level of delusional optimism, there is NOTHING that you cannot accomplish.

Any words of advice or role models that have inspired you or changed your life?
My parents Irondi and Sylvia Aliche are my greatest inspiration. The most important lesson I’ve learned from them is that no matter how many detours or adjustments need to be made, continue toward your star and no worthy journey follows a straight path. Have faith without ceasing.
What advice would you give women so that they can go out of their comfort zones and start making moves in their lives and society?
SIMPLE and SOON. If you really want to change, you have to stop overcomplicating the process and take action now.

  1. Tiffany "The Budgetnista" Aliche is so inspiring! She has encouraged me to take money management more seriously on a personal level. I had the privilege of meeting Tiffany a few times. Her personality is so warm and inviting. When you meet her, it's like you have known her for years. I look forward in seeing more of her in the near future. Although, she mentioned that her goal is to secure a regular spot on TV– I see her with her own show one day. Personality and knowledge for what interests us all is sure to be a success.
