Meet Mt. Kisco’s Flip Flop Bitch: Laura Massari, a financial adviser and Certified Financial Planner at Axiom Wealth Capital in Mt. Kisco, is famous for more than being the winner of our recent sweepstakes for a dinner for two at La Cremaillere Restaurant in Banksville. She’s also the Flip Flop Bitch!

Meet Mt. Kisco’s Flip Flop BitchWe don’t mean that she’s indecisive and ornery. We mean that she’s a co-owner, along with her mom Sinful Cindy, of their own line of Tote(ally) Chic Tote bags that you can buy on their website theflipflopbitch.com.

#ItsOkayToBeABitch … just ask Kathy Lee

“We were walking in Manhattan from a cocktail party, about four years ago, and I pulled out a tote to change out of my stilettoes and into my flip flops and the girls were very jealous,” Sinful Cindy told us. “My friend asked me, what are you the flip flop bitch, as she hobbled along in her heels.”

That’s when she decided to manufacture her own line of totes and mother and daughter have been the flip flop bitch ever since. #ItsOkayToBeABitch

Hand-made locally, they gifted Kathy Lee Gifford one of the first pairs at a meet and greet at Bloomingdale’s in White Plains. Within in days, KLG was featuring them on NBC’s Today Show in their “Favorite Things” segment.

And then, unbelievable, we ran into her on the street in Greenwich and she asked us if we got any calls. Can you believe it? Did we get any calls? She is so wonderful and genuine in person, ” said Sinful (and somewhat sentimental) Cindy.

At the Oscars with the FFB

Since then they have developed three lines of wristlets (great for proms and bar/bat mitzvahs) and full totes ­– for the flip flops and stilettoes. Their Fashion Tote line ranges from the Flirty Zebra and the LBT (Little Black Tote) to the Gold Sueded Vegan Leather and the reversible Spotted Cougar Tote (shown above). They also make a line of Sparkly Totes that they sell for Bridal Parties (Purely White shown below) that were distributed in the Swag Bags at the Oscars and the Emmy Awards.

The average homeowner to this day is 38 times wealthier than a renter.

Millionaire to Millennials: Buy a Home!!

Last week, CNBC ran an article quoting self-made millionaire David Bach explaining that not purchasing a home is “the single biggest mistake millennials are making” because buying real estate is “an escalator to wealth.”

Bach went on to explain:

“If millennials don’t buy a home, their chances of actually having any wealth in this country are little to none. The average homeowner to this day is 38 times wealthier than a renter.”

In his bestselling book, “The Automatic Millionaire,” Bach does the math:

“As a renter, you can easily spend half a million dollars or more on rent over the years ($1,500 a month for 30 years comes to $540,000), and in the end wind up just where you started — owning nothing. Or you can buy a house and spend the same amount paying down a mortgage, and in the end wind up owning your own home free and clear!”

Who is David Bach?

Bach is a self-made millionaire who has written nine consecutive New York Timesbestsellers. His book, “The Automatic Millionaire,” spent 31 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list. He is one of the only business authors in history to have four books simultaneously on the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, BusinessWeek and USA Today bestseller lists.

He has been a contributor to NBC’s Today Show appearing more than 100 times, has been a regular on ABC, CBS, Fox, CNBC, CNN, Yahoo, The View, and PBS, and has been profiled in many major publications, including The New York Times, BusinessWeek, USA Today, People, Reader’s Digest, Time, Financial Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, Working Woman, Glamour, Family Circle, Redbook, Huffington Post, Business Insider, Investors’ Business Daily, and Forbes.

Bottom Line

Whenever a well-respected millionaire gives investment advice, people usually clamor to hear it. This millionaire gave simple advice – if you don’t yet live in your own home, go buy one.
