“When fear shows up, we tend to over-react, under-react, and get stuck. That’s because we haven’t been told that it’s okay to be afraid, and we haven’t been told how to navigate with our fears in a constructive way.” – Farnoosh Torabi



I am so excited to have my pal, bestselling author and personal finance expert, Farnoosh Torabi, on the show. 

We are talking about her new book, A Healthy State of Panic: Follow Your Fears to Build Wealth, Crush Your Career, and Win At Life, which Newsweek chose as a “Best Book of 2023.” I don’t know about you, but the title definitely resonates with me!

In this conversation, Farnoosh shares how she shifted from being limited by fear to constructively responding to fear. She also offers a few tips you can use if you struggle with fear around money and reveals what we can learn from fear if we allow it a chance.
