I’m the creator and host of the Yo Quiero Dinero podcast. My personal finance journey began by accident. I was 25, getting another degree I didn’t even care about, dealing with a quarter life crisis and working a job I hated. One day in 2014, I walked into work, and got fired. Having been fired for the first time ever, I knew I wanted to build a life that revolved around FREEDOM. I dove headfirst into learning everything I could about blogging. And just like, I became an accidental business owner!
My side hustles helped me pay off over $39,000 of student loans in 17 months, build generational wealth, walk away from traditional 9-5 employment decades early. I quit my job in 2021 after turning my side hustles into my main hustle!
As I continued to understand and learn about the many avenues for generating passive income, in 2018, I stumbled upon the concept of FIRE (Financial Independence/Retire Early). I started listening to a ton of personal finance podcasts, devouring everything I could find. I started implemented FIRE concepts into my finances, and in 2021, I became financially independent & quit my 9-5!
I was shocked that no one I knew was talking about how you can use investing to reach financial freedom. And so, I created Yo Quiero Dinero to start the conversation about building wealth in the Latinx community.
I’m on a mission to start a financial literacy revolution for the Latinx community.
For too long, we have been left behind and it’s time we level the playing field by educating ourselves on the power of money and how we can use it to build up ourselves and our communities. I’m passionate about educating Latinas about the powerful ways that money can be used to manifest the life of your dreams, build a multi-generational legacy, and secure financial freedom and independence. Thank you so much for being here! Together, let’s start a revolution!
