all about...

Jannese Torres-Rodriguez

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!

Once upon a time

About 6 months before I got fired, I started a food blog - Delish D’Lites.

I’ve always been passionate about food and cooking, and toyed with the idea of quitting my job to go to culinary school, but I realized something in that moment.

So as I sat there on my couch, just 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. I learned:

How to Build a Blog From Scratch

01

02

How to Photograph and Style Photos

How To Monetize A Blog

03

04

How To Pitch To Brands and Get Hired For Sponsored Blog Posts

How To Build Authentic Connections With Your Audience

…And just like, I became an accidental business owner!

And now…

My businesses have grown since then and I’m using 10 income streams to earn over $100,000 a year, just from side hustles!

My side hustles helped me pay off over $39,000 of student loans in 17 months, build generational wealth, and provide me with the opportunity to retire from traditional 9-5 work 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 generating financial freedom and independence.

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!

so what's next?
