It's the Season 17 finale and to wrap up yet another incredible season, I've got Vivian Tu of Your Rich BFF on the show to share her journey of being raised by immigrant parents, getting into an elite university to make her parents proud, becoming the lone woman of colour Wall Street trader on her team, then leaving it all for the world of Tiktok to become one of the most followed finfluencers who's been able to amass a net worth north of a million dollars in only two years. Oh, and did I mention she also has a new book coming out (that you can enter to win!) called Rich AF: The Winning Money Mindset That Will Change Your Life?
As someone who has been a financial educator and influencer for close to 12 years, it was so fascinating for me to learn how Vivian was able to skyrocket into online popularity during the height of Covid while sticking to her Wall Street roots by making sure to educate her young following about the key things they should know about money and building wealth while staying true to her values.
The podcast will be on break for January but expect to see Season 18 in February so I can finish writing my own book that will be out next winter!

Money can be a simple thing, but it can also be complex when you take into account one important factor — people. Financial content creator and new author Ellyce Fulmore is on the podcast today to discuss her new book, Keeping Finance Personal, as well how we all need to adopt a more shame-free and trauma-aware approach to money. You see, there's a reason managing money and building wealth comes easy to some and not others.
For Ellyce, she realized that her identity as a queer woman with ADHD played a much larger role in her finances than she initially realized. So just think, what does your identity say about your money? Does it mean you face certain barriers that others don't? Does it mean it takes you longer to learn? Does it mean you'll struggle more with things like sticking to a budget or overcoming your anxiety with investing compared to others? The answer is a resounding YES! Personal finance is personal as they say, but often I think that important fact is still overlooked or ignored by many.

I'm so excited to have my next guest come back for a second time on the show because she's not only that much closer to achieving her goal of financial independence but she's also just published her first book on how we can all follow in her footsteps! I'm talking about Jamila Souffrant, the host of the Journey to Launch podcast who you may remember from episode 275. Her new book, Your Journey To
Financial Freedom A Step-by-Step Guide to Achieving Wealth and Happiness, goes in-depth about what specific steps we all should be taking to save more, pay down debt, and ultimately build more wealth so we can live more and be able to pass down more wealth to future generations.
Although Jamila has reached some big milestones recently, it's been a long journey to get where she is. Her journey actually started with paying down $169,000 in debt in just two years, while also balancing running a full-time business and being a mom of three young children in Brooklyn, New York. If you're looking for some motivation to either start or continue your own personal finance journey, you need to listen to this episode.
