We’ll start you off with a warning: listening to the “Financial Feminist” podcast may make you financially confident, comfortable and independent. If you haven’t heard of the woman who saved her first $100,000 by 25 and is hell-bent on helping others do the same, then let me introduce you to Tori Dunlap.
Dunlap knows that women are less likely to gain a financial education than men. While she herself has negotiated at least a 10% raise on every job she’s been offered, she knows that men are far more likely to negotiate higher pay than women. She knows that women hold the majority of debt in America. They invest less of their money, despite living an average of seven years longer. The financial sphere is historically male-dominated, and Dunlap is changing that. In her own words: “a financial education is a woman’s best form of protest”.
Started as a side hustle, Her First $100K is now a booming financial help, financial independence, financial freedom causing business. Dunlap doles out free money advice: what high-yield savings accounts to use, her favorite credit cards, investing 101. She offers classes on making your side hustle your full-time gig, personal finance and career coaching, and a “Back to Basics” money masterclass. Also, she has brilliant resume and cover letter templates to ensure that you get the next gig. Now, her new podcast, “Financial Feminist,” is the number one business podcast worldwide. One listen, and you will be maxing out your Roth IRA.
This isn’t about being frugal: buying less coffee or fancy clothes. This is about long-term investing, budgeting, and saving. Her podcast episodes range from 15-minute, hyper-educational lessons, to hour-long discussions with the smartest women in money. So, can you spare that much time to financially secure your future?
Dunlap talks financial game plans: building your emergency fund, paying off debt, and increasing your credit score. She has a whole beginner’s guide to investing. She talks the racial wage gap, multi-level marketing schemes, getting around the weird psychology we have with money. Basically, she wants money to not be a scary topic anymore! So let’s talk about it.
Financial freedom is for everyone. “Financial Feminist” is for everyone. Stop losing money by being afraid of it. We owe it to ourselves to earn that coin. So, go! Open a high yield savings account! Negotiate that raise! Listen to “Financial Feminist”. Change your life one episode at a time.
