All December, we’ll be replaying podcast episodes about FI/RE. This week’s episode is episode 61, with Delyanne Barros from Slay The Stock Market.
Delyanne Barros came to the United States as a child from Brazil, and spent much of her life in Miami as an undocumented immigrant. She was eventually able to go to law school, but when she graduated in 2008, she had $150,000 in student debt and no wealth to her name. After discovering the FIRE movement (Financial Independence / Retire Early), she began pursuing her own debt-free journey, paying off $110,000 in student loans in 10 months.
Today, Delyanne carries no debt and has built a net worth of over $300,000. She plans to achieve FIRE by 2028. Through her digital course, Slay The Stock Market, she provides her clients with investing coaching so that they can achieve their own financial goals to fund their dream life. You can follow her on Instagram and Twitter or join her Facebook Group.
Editors Note: Since this episode was recorded, Delyanne paid off her student loans 5 months ahead of her originally scheduled debt free date of December 25, 2020, and has accelerated her FIRE journey even faster! You can read her story in NextAdvisor and Business Insider.
Episode 61 Highlights:
- Balancing a full-time job with being a student
- Navigating your way into the world of personal finance
- The personal finance and investing learning curve
If you are new to FI/RE, this episode will give you the perfect overview. Not only does Delyanne walk us through her money journey, but she also talks through how she found FI/RE and what it will look like for her. When things feel intimidating, sometimes the best thing we can do for ourselves is listen to other people’s stories. Delyanne’s story and platform is truly one of inspiration; listening to it is a great first step to anyone who has been too afraid to step into this world.
Until next time, stay empowered, stay inspired & #staypoderosa ✨💎
