    I have never commented on your blog but read it all the time. This is hilarious and brilliant! subscribed.

  2. I enjoyed this video because (1) I rarely get to interact with intoxicated individuals now after living in a college town for a decade and (2) the first and last questions are my life right now. Especially the last question. Aftering being the top earner in my household for years, it has been difficult to not earn an income/save with just 1 income. It is incredibly frustrating and subsequently makes you day go to shit pretty quickly. So thankful for this moment of sheer entertainment. I look forward to future episodes.

  3. Bridget, this is pure gold. Even though I know the editing took forever, this is one of the funniest things I’ve seen in forever, and it for sure didn’t feel like 14 minutes! I love how candid you are about the different aspects of shifting from your full time job to entrepreneurship – which, yes, is easy after a bottle of wine, BUT STILL.

    Can’t wait to see more in the series!

  4. So funny!! I loved it Bridget xD and surprisingly very sensible answers to those questions while intoxicated *thumbs up*

    P.s. I was very scared of you spilling more of the wine on many moments during this video haha!

  5. YES! I love this. Great first episode with great advice and so many laughs 🙂 Can’t wait to watch more. I said it before, but I’ll say it again: YouTube needs WAY more people talking about money and I’m so glad you’ve started posting vids cause you just the woman for the job 😉 Great work!

    Get a case for your phone!
    (I promise I learned stuff from your video, but I kept thinking about your phone’s case-lessness 🙂 )
