Today the guys sit down with Rianka Dorsainvil, the founder and CEO of “Your Greatest Competition.” Rianka is a Certified Financial Planner who has worked and continues to work with multi-generational high earners and low-income families. Rianka created YGC after realizing her mission didn’t align with the different financial firms she had worked for in Corporate America. In this episode you’ll learn what to do before quitting your job to pursue entrepreneurship, how to avoid “lifestyle creep,” and how to use the YNAB (Why You Need a Budget) app and how Rianka is using her podcast to bridge the diversity and gender gap in the finance world, which is dominated by Caucasian males. Highlights: Rianka being the first college graduate in her family. Personal Finance 101. How Rianka dedicated her career to help her sick Nana. Getting debilitating migraines on your way to work, at a job you hate. Truly loving what you do, gives you the tenacity to not give up when you’re struggling to grow you’re business. Cutting back your lifestyle and saving money before you leave your 9-5 job to pursue entrepreneurship. As soon as you become laser focused on your small business, things start happing for you. The universe aligns. “Lifestyle Creep.” Joining the Freelancers Union to get health and disability benefits while self employed. Bridging the race and gender gap in the finance world. Key Takeaway: Working with a financial planner shouldn’t be dictated by how much money you have, but rather a desire and motivation to want to live a more fruitful life.
