Today’s guest on Mitlin Money Mindset™ is best-selling author BB Easton. BB never intended to become an author. She was a full-time school psychologist and new mom when inspiration struck. BB began writing down her own stories just for fun, no one was supposed to read them. She took the events that followed and turned them into her hilarious, heart-warming, hot-as-hell comedic memoir, 44 Chapters About 4 Men: A Memoir! Within weeks, it hit the Amazon Top 100 Bestseller list and received a glowing review from #1 New York Times bestselling author Colleen Hoover. 44 Chapters About 4 Men: A Memoir also won the After Dark Book Lovers Shortie Award for Best Debut of 2016. 

Ultimately the book was the inspiration for the Sex/Life series on Netflix and quickly skyrocketed to one of their most-watched original series of all time. Due to the book's success and BB's desire to keep writing, she quit her stressful job, dyed her hair pink, and went on to publish four more wickedly funny, shockingly steamy, and heartwarmingly honest books. Listen in for some great takeaways about how BB made the transition from school psychologist to full-time author.
