all about...

Jannese Torres

I’m the creator and host of the award-winning personal finance podcast, Yo Quiero Dinero® and author of the bestselling book Financially Lit!

I’m a mission to help you be poderosa with your dinero, because I didn’t have a clue what I was doing with money for a VERY LONG TIME (can you relate?)

If you’re like me (a first-gen kid who didn’t learn sh*t about money), then you’ll wanna stick around. 

My story is juicier than your favorite novela!

Once upon a time

About 6 months before I got fired, I started my first side hustle...

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!

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. 

With this goal, I started my journey into online entrepreneurship.

My Work Has Been Featured In:

I dove headfirst into learning everything I could about earning income online. I learned:

How to Build Passive Income Through Online Content Like Blogs, Podcasts and Social Media



How To Turn Your Passion Into A Content-Based Brand

How To Start An Online Business Using Your Existing Talents and Skills, On The Cheap!



How To Build A Personal Brand and Get Hired To Share Your Expertise

How To Build Authentic Connections With Your Audience


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

And now…

My content-based businesses have grown from an idea into over 10 income streams that have helped me earn over $1.8 million dollars!

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 Latino 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!
