Episode 249: YQD® Success Stories: How Luzy Turned Her Passion Into Purpose | Luzy King | Say Hola Wealth


This week, episode 249 features a YQD® success story! We sat down with past student Luzy King of Say Hola Wealth and discuss how she turned her passion into purpose. Listen now!

Episode 249: YQD® Success Stories: How Luzy Turned Her Passion Into Purpose

Luzy King is an award-winning entrepreneur, Certified Trauma of Money Wealth Coach, contributing author, Community Leader, and Founder of Say Hola Wealth.

Luzy is on a mission to decolonize wealth for First Gen Latinas and BIPOC and help them reach financial freedom through stock market investing and entrepreneurship. As a first-gen investor from humble beginnings, Luzy understands the challenges of building wealth not only because financial literacy is not taught in school but also because of the cultural beliefs around money in our culture and society.

In 2019, Luzy launched her coaching business after witnessing how many women were pushed out of the workforce due to a global pandemic, and many were not financially secure. Now, she teaches the strategies she used to pay off debt, become an investor, and launch an online business.

Episode 249 Highlights:

  • Decolonizing wealth
  • How to launch a business using the skills you already have
  • Lessons we all can learn from our money trauma
  • The power of community to build wealth
  • Building a brand to increase your income and invest more
  • And more!

Make sure to follow Lucy and keep building that wealth, y’all. As a community, we will absolutely be unstoppable when these conversations aren’t some weird, nuanced thing. Let’s have these conversations at brunch, at the quinceañera, at la boda, wherever!

Latinas, especially with how we’re earning more, are becoming more educated. That in turn makes us be the change that we wish to see in our communities. And the work that Luzy is doing is helping us get there. Thank you for coming onto the show and sharing your story with our comunidad!
