Today I’m talking about money. How are you ladies out there doing with your money? I used to have this faulty belief that because I was good at making money, I would always have a lot of money. And we all know that’s not true!
Today’s guest, Amanda Steinberg helped me shift my beliefs around my own personal finances and seriously schooled me in practical strategies to manage and invest my dough. As uses her platform to educate women about their money she is also shedding light on the historical and sociological truths that have shaped our limiting beliefs around what is possible and/or proper when it comes to personal finance.
Amanda launched DailyWorth in 2009 to bring a fresh voice and an outsider’s perspective to personal finance. Oprah selected her to the exclusive SuperSoul 100, and Forbes named her one of twenty-one New American Money Masters. Her digital investing service, WorthFM, received front-page coverage in The New York Times Business section. Today we are diving deep into her new book Worth It: Your Life, Your Money, Your Terms due out tomorrow February 7th, 2017.
