I Want Relatable Personal Finance Advice
Tired of reading unrelatable personal finance profiles on people who borrowed a small $100,000 loan from their parents, inherited their wealth, or lived at home while paying off thousands of dollars in debt in 48-hours all while buying HGTV homes on full-time professional video game player budgets? We heard you loud and clear! Our listeners wanted real personal finance profiles of relatable individuals that live and work in the real world. From financial basics to expert advice, we’ll go beyond viral headlines that link to content that contains absolutely no applicable lessons to your life or actionable items by including step-by-step guides that highlight how individuals from a variety of backgrounds, age, and work experience reached financial independence.
