Episode 255: How To Become A First Gen Millionaire | Genesis Hinckley | Genuinely Genesis

Genesis has done it all! She’s navigated motherhood raising a confident and curious little boy, worked in the corporate world as a Business Analyst at Google, curated content on social media sharing Spanglish financial literacy for low income communities, invested in 2 short-term rental properties, and is now working on publishing her first novel.

On top of all of that, she actively seeks to heal her inner child wounds of growing up low income, understanding her identity as a Bolivian-American in the United States, and what it means to truly be a ‘secure’ person.

Genesis believes there’s a seed to be planted in all of us. But before that seed can flourish, it needs a stable foundation. She is actively providing valuable insights for her primarily Spanglish-speaking audience to help them build a solid financial foundation so they can live their American dreams.
