92. How To Use Your 401(K) To Pursue Financial Independence | Marie & Stephanie of Winenance

Marie Coleman-Johns and Stephanie Stockwell, aka, the “Sisters of Financial Independence,” are personal finance educators and the founders of Winenance. Through their weekly YouTube show and podcast, investing workshops, and blog posts, they help women and people of color spend more intentionally, learn how to invest and grow wealth, and build a life of financial freedom. Having grown up financially insecure, they started out repeating the bad money habits they learned from their parents. Though they turned things around in their 20s through growing their careers, by their early 30s, they realized that the savings sitting in their bank account wasn’t actually growing, and that wealth still eluded them. They soon found the FIRE movement and learned how to master their 401Ks and invest. Wanting to share the keys to investing with their friends and family, they took what they learned, built a PowerPoint Presentation, and started hosting Winenance Nights. Learn more at
