The road to financial literacy can be a daunting journey, especially when you’re 22 years old, $30,000 in debt, and making $18 an hour while living in the most expensive city in America (NYC). This is where this week’s guest Farnoosh Torabi found herself before becoming one of the leading personal finance authorities hooked on helping young professionals navigate their finances and live their richest, happiest lives.
From her early days reporting for Money Magazine to hosting a prime-time series on CNBC and writing monthly for O, The Oprah Magazine and Mint.com, she’s become a favorite go-to money expert.
In this episode we discuss:
- How she ended up choosing to go into the money business
- Her long-standing career in personal finance
- The common themes and issues that she’s seen in finances over the years
- Her thoughts on the FIRE movement
- Why you should choose hobbies and pursue interests to help build your skill set
- Why she’s also now dabbling in comedy
