Farnoosh Torabi is one of America’s leading personal finance authorities who’s hooked on helping you live your richest, happiest life. As a multi-bestselling Financial Author, Contributing Editor to Time Magazine’s NextAdvisor, CNBC host and creator of the award-winning So Money, Farnoosh has become our favorite go-to money expert and financial friend. The New York Times calls her advice, “perfectly practical.” Farnoosh’s podcast has surpassed 17 million downloads with listeners in over 200 countries, thanks to its one-of-a-kind interviews and deep conversations about money.
Farnoosh was born in Worcester, Massachusetts to immigrant parents who left Iran in the late 1970s in search of a more fulfilling life. Arriving with two suitcases and the promise of a small stipend from her dad’s university, the Torabi’s took a leap of faith and settled in the United States, hoping to build their version of the American Dream. It was here that her parents furthered their education, found fulfilling work, became homeowners and instilled in their children the virtues of patience, generosity and hard work.
Money may have been tight (really tight), but it was never a taboo subject in the household and for that, Farnoosh is eternally grateful. It’s what ultimately inspired her to lead a mission to help others achieve financial greatness.
Today, Farnoosh is a sought-after speaker and bestselling author. Each year she speaks at numerous events, companies, organizations and schools.
Her latest bestseller is entitled When She Makes More: The Truth About Love and Life for a New Generation of Women. Farnoosh’s work and advice have been featured in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Fortune, Forbes, Time, Marie Claire, Glamour, Redbook and USA Today.
She graduated with Honors from Pennsylvania State University with a degree in Finance and International Business. She also holds a Master’s from the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism.
