Episode 222: Why the Future of America's Economy Depends on Latinos | Lyanne Alfaro | Moneda Moves

Lyanne tells stories about what’s next in the world of technology, business and entrepreneurship. An NYC journalist turned multi-hyphenate, she’s especially passionate about exploring the Latino influence in the world of business. She has launched a newsletter and podcast all about it called Moneda Moves. She’s first generation, Mexicana and hails from Chicago.

Most recently, she was at Nasdaq on a small team that reimagined the way we covered companies going public on the stock exchange. On any given day, she hosted live segments spotlighting entrepreneurs and produced Nasdaq’s first podcast: Tomorrow’s Capital. Her team’s work has been recognized by the likes of The New York Emmys, The Webby Awards, Digiday and PRNews.

Episode 222 Highlights:

  • Her money story growing up
  • Latinos understand money just like everyone else
  • Entrepreneurship being a necessity in Latino communities vs other ethnicity groups
  • The most common obstacles entrepreneurs face and how to tackle them
  • Gatekeeping in the Latino community
  • Working in predominantly dominated white spaces
  • Limiting beliefs she’s had to confront as a first-gen kid while building wealth
  • And more!

This conversation with Lyanne was so amazing! We love how not only has she immersed herself in this entrepreneurial world as a storyteller, but she also gets to participate in it! She’s taken off all these skills that she’s acquired throughout her corporate experience and is now using them in a different way, as an entrepreneur. We’re always telling our people that there are so many professional skills you pick up along the way that you can turn into your own business. Lyanne is a prime example of that and we know this episode is gonna be what you need to start utilizing your own skills to become your own boss! Gracias amiga!
