Today we have an awesome episode for you, with guest Amanda Steinberg! Amanda is a serial entrepreneur who launched DailyWorth in 2009 to bring a fresh voice and an outsider’s perspective to personal finance. Oprah selected her to the exclusive SuperSoul 100, and Forbes named her one of twenty-one New American Money Masters. Amanda has also appeared on GMA, Today, CNN, and MSNBC. Her digital investing service, WorthFM, received front-page coverage in The New York Times Business section and she’s the author of the new book, Worth It: Your Life, Your Money, Your Terms.
Amanda shares how she emotionally handled being in a tremendous amount of debt, why her digital investing service is specifically for women (and how they interact differently with money than men do), and a whole lot more.
We are excited to have a copy of Amanda’s book to giveaway! Just tag us on Instagram (@KateNorthrup or @MikeJWatts) and show us a picture of you doing something that makes you feel worthy. A random winner will be picked the day this episode is aired. Good luck!
