We had the good fortune of connecting with Meru Hunter McMahon and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Meru, do you have a budget? How do you make lifestyle and spending decisions?
I do not actually have a budget because I do not believe in it. I have always practiced conscious spending, while aligning my values and goals in life with how I manage my money. This approach empowers me and keeps me out of debt, helping me have solid personal finances while enjoying and reaching my life goals. I believe the budget concept is like a diet, nowadays dieting is no longer trendy but healthy eating is.
What should our readers know about your business?
Thank you, I am honored for this opportunity. Your Savings Pro initially has been established using the professional skillset I acquired while in Supply Chain Procurement roles. I wanted to help small business owners to find savings to add to their revenue from the bottom-line perspective. Small businesses usually do not have a good procurement process in place, thus leaking the money from hard earned top line. However, my experiences and observations since starting my business have led me to shift my mission to help others to lead a debt-free life, not just Financially but Emotionally and Spiritually as well. Using my personal, professional, and cultural experiences, I help maximize the full potential of life profits and eliminate overwhelming life stress in the process. It is like finding hidden treasures in life. Owning a business is never an easy process, but I love what I do because I am following my purpose and passion. Overcoming challenges for me means improvising as needed. If plan A does not work, create plan B, and so on. The biggest lesson I learned is to stay on your own road to success and do not get sidetracked by what others are doing. Through my own pains and gains, I have discovered the TRUE meaning of wealth. With, what I call, “The Trinity of Abundance Methodology,” I’ve developed a process that helped me to transform my life and now I am taking actions to share my lessons to help others do the same.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
To be honest, I would not be a person for a typical fun city trip. I do not associate fun with the city, per se. I am mostly a home-body and I love camping-style trips, visiting nature vs being in the city. I understand the majority of people prefer city vacations; however, when I have visitors I take them wherever they like to go, as I like to be a nice host. But, if I am forced to be in a city vacation environment, I would pick places like museums, concerts, shows, and explore the history of the city. Or, maybe just walk around outside looking at the architecture of the city. Shopping is the last thing I’d want to do. My suggestion and top pick will always be nature vs the city. This is where we as friends learn to compromise in our friendship.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Indeed, we build our success by surrounding ourselves with the right influence. First of all, the shoutout is to my supportive husband Brian, and my amazing children Tota, Dylan, and Paxton who provide continuous unconditional support and inspire me to go after my desired goals. I do have a long list of people who I am thankful for, they are all supportive and share varying parts of my journey. I believe everyone we meet in life provides some kind of lesson for our transformation in life. I have met so many wonderful people through organizations like, The Woodlands Chamber, ABWA, SCORE, and various other Women’s groups. I read a lot as well so I love any books that support my required growth. One of my favorites is “Storyworthy” by Matthew Dicks. And if I have to pick one person for this interview, I will have to give a shoutout to Angela Lynn Aja. She is on a mission to help women come into alignment with their God-given purpose, step into their call & govern their lives well.
