Cinneah El-Amin is the creator of Flynanced, a debt free travel and financial freedom blog where she inspires readers to fly financially free. At only 26, Cinneah has traveled to 28 countries across 6 continents and is often asked how she affords to travel. Realizing that many of her millennial peers were struggling with managing their money, were not building wealth, and were yearning to travel without financial barriers, she created Flynanced to answer that call.
In her own finances, Cinneah is on track to become debt free this year and kickstart her financial independence journey. She seeks to change the narratives for Black millennial women to live life without debt, build generational wealth, and see more of the world on their terms. With a background in financial services and business management, Cinneah brings tangible and accessible personal finance knowledge to her readers. She is based in NYC.
After a historic win for WOC through VP-elect Kamala Harris, listening to Cinneah’s story again inspired me. Her why is my why: seeking to create more representation in the spaces we take up.
In Episode 56, Cinneah and I talk about:
▪ Growing up as a layaway kid!
▪ Identifying spending triggers
▪ Reframing what a budget means for us
▪ Why we both prioritize travel in our financial future plans
When talking to different people, one thing many have in common is a lack of vision: a lot of us are just moving through the motions. What if we acted through vision? Cinneah walks us through how to start this process, what it looks like, and why it’s key. Excited for y’all to take some notes with this one!
