Thank you Farnoosh for this podcast. I’m a woman in her early 20’s who feels underpaid and undervalued. This podcast gives me hopes that I will accomplish more and one day be paid fairly for my work and effort. Farnoosh interviews successful people that share their story and relationship to money. Farnoosh is a skilled interviewer and offers resources and knowledge about finances, real estate and career development. Every podcast is different and offers a different perspective. I highly recommend listening to this podcast. It is one of my favorites.

I was hoping for something much more..

I think the recent real estate shows are indicitive of the whole. Instead of economists or real estate experts, what we got were agents who not only have a vested interest in painting a certain picure, they were interested in selling themselves and their own projects. I learned nothing about national trends, possible pitfalls of the markets due to loss of work on such a large scale or the interesting ballance going on between low lending rates ballanced by the need to have a very high credit score to get them. It was all fluff.

After the massive success of his first book, I Will Teach You to Be Rich, he's back - ten years later - with a second edition, updated and expanded for a new age.

In our latest conversation (Ramit was on previously - check it out), we discuss:

The additions and omissions he decided to make in the new version of his book - and why.The untold realities of executing a prenup with your partner-to-be. Ramit shares details from his own experience.The current attacks on financial experts who believe in personal accountability.Ramit started his website, iwillteachyoutoberich.com, as a Stanford undergraduate in 2004, and he now hosts over a million readers per month on his blog, newsletter, and social media. Sethi grew up in Sacramento, the son of Indian immigrant parents who taught him the art of negotiating—his father once spent five days negotiating with a car dealer, only to walk away over a set of floor mats.

He wasn’t the smartest kid in his class, but he loved building systems, which ultimately earned him over $200,000 in scholarships, which he used to get bachelor’s and master’s degrees in technology and psychology at Stanford.

His understanding of human behavior and money led to him creating innovative solutions in self development. Ramit and his team of dozens of employees build premium digital products about personal finance, entrepreneurship, psychology, careers, and personal development for top performers.

Rank #3: 764: Ask Farnoosh: How to Build My (DIY) Financial Plan?

Podcast cover
Read more

We have a special theme for Ask Farnoosh this Friday: Prioritizing your financial goals.

Special co-host Eric Roberge is a certified financial planner and has found that people tend to get stuck on how to use their money... and many times, end up procrastinating to their own detriment because of it! They are trying to make the right decision when all they really need to do is avoid making a bad one.

We have a lot we want to accomplish with our money and know we need to save, invest wisely, and watch our cash flow... but we seem to struggle when it comes to (confidently) knowing which of our goals to focus on first -- or how to balance them if they're going to work on more than one thing at a time.

What if you had $70,000 worth of consumer debt and losing your job amidst all of that financial stress?

Today, I’m interviewing Adeola Omole on the show. She describes herself as a lawyer by trade and a money coach by choice. Her journey of achieving debt ZERO and building a community for women and money is the focus of our conversation today.

Raised by immigrants in a family of six children, Adeola watched her parents work hard but also pinch pennies. Seeing her parents’ financial struggles growing up, Adeola thought debt was a normal part of life. This led her to make her own money mistakes. By the time she was a young adult finishing her clerkship just out of law school, she had amassed $70,000 worth of consumer debt.

Fast-forward to today, Adeola and her husband are debt-free and building great wealth. They’ve even managed to pay off their mortgage. Adeola also has a new book: 7 Steps to Get Out of Debt and Build Wealth.

You can learn more about Adeola on her website adeolaomole.com, on Instagram at @adeolaomoleb, and on Twitter @AdeolaOmoleB.

1051: Black Wealth Matters: Myleik Teele, Founder and Chief Experience Officer of curlBOX

Podcast cover
Read more

Over the years many outstanding Black individuals who fought racism and oppression to achieve personal wealth and career success have graced my podcast. For the next 10 episodes - from today June 3rd through June 24 - I’ll be re-sharing and re-amplifying some of their voices and work, their stories of resilience, hard work and triumph. I’m calling this series BLACK WEALTH MATTERS. 

I announced this on Instagram earlier in the week. It is my small way of contributing to this human rights issue of racial equality. It’s the quickest action I know to take that would hopefully have a meaningful impact...to get us to unlearn, re-evaluate and better understand what it means to be a Black person in this country while trying to establish personal wealth. 

Thank you to everyone who responded to my announcement with guest recommendations for Black Wealth Matters. I’ve taken them all into account and keeping a folder and hoping to work my way to speaking to all of them - if not this month - in the coming months. Please keep the guest suggestions coming.

Today -- We are revisiting my conversation with Myleik Teele from 2015. Myleik is the Atlanta-based founder and chief experience officer of Curlbox, the first exclusive monthly subscription box for naturally curly hair. 

curlBOX has major partnerships with brands and distributors including Procter & Gamble, Walmart, Target, and Shea Moisture, and more. 

A teacher at heart, her wildly popular, #MyTaughtYou podcast has become her global classroom where women from all walks of life tune in for guidance and a healthy dose of motivation to live life on their own terms. 

You just heard at the top of this show - a moment from our conversation - when she candidly opens up about her relationship with money. Even as a wealthy woman, she is, as she says, cautious with her money, perhaps overly cautious.

Thank you Farnoosh for this podcast. I’m a woman in her early 20’s who feels underpaid and undervalued. This podcast gives me hopes that I will accomplish more and one day be paid fairly for my work and effort. Farnoosh interviews successful people that share their story and relationship to money. Farnoosh is a skilled interviewer and offers resources and knowledge about finances, real estate and career development. Every podcast is different and offers a different perspective. I highly recommend listening to this podcast. It is one of my favorites.

I was hoping for something much more..

I think the recent real estate shows are indicitive of the whole. Instead of economists or real estate experts, what we got were agents who not only have a vested interest in painting a certain picure, they were interested in selling themselves and their own projects. I learned nothing about national trends, possible pitfalls of the markets due to loss of work on such a large scale or the interesting ballance going on between low lending rates ballanced by the need to have a very high credit score to get them. It was all fluff.
