Latina Women on FIRE, hosted by Next Advisor, highlights Latinas who are pursuing financial independence & eary retirement.
It’s no secret that women and people of color own a disproportionately small amount of wealth in the U.S. and make far less money than white men. But a particular group of Latinas says FIRE — an acronym for “financial independence, retire early” — can change that. Money experts and investors Delyanne Barros, Jannese Torres-Rodriguez, Vanessa Menchaca-Wachtmeister, and Rita-Soledad Fernández Paulino are paving the way for other Latinas and people of color by forging their own FIRE community and sharing wealth-building strategies to help uplift others.
For these women, achieving financial freedom means taking matters into their own hands. FIRE empowers them to escape the inequality and oppression they would otherwise be constrained by. They can simply say “no” to a system that makes them feel undervalued, to having to choose between being with family and making money, and to financially abusive relationships.
In recognition of Women’s History Month and Women’s Equal Pay Day, Torres-Rodriguez of the “Yo Quiero Dinero” podcast will sit down with Barros, founder of Delyanne the Money Coach, a money-coaching business and popular Instagram and TikTok feed focused on achieving FIRE; Menchaca-Wachtmeister, a travel tech professional and the creator of Wander Onwards; and Soledad, a former math teacher and creator of Wealth Para Todos, to discuss how women and people of color can use FIRE to create multiple income streams, build generational wealth, and bypass systemic inequalities.
