Farnoosh is one of the leading personal finance experts in the US.
When she struggled to climb out of debt while living in New York City after completing her Master’s degree, she came to a stark realization.
She realized that no practical, fun or even digestible financial advice was directed at young adults.
Throughout her financial reporter degree, she consistently empathized with young professionals who felt utterly lost and drained.
Consequently, she decided to focus her career on helping young adults searching for financial independence.
In addition to her coaching jobs and book, You’re So Money – Live Rich Even When You’re Not, Farnoosh also decided to create a podcast.
This podcast, called So Money with Farnoosh Torabi, is dedicated to providing practical and easy-to-digest advice regarding personal finance!
Below, I’ve listed my favorite So Money with Farnoosh Torabi episodes to get you started. Check them out.
