Investing in Comedy with Gina Yashere 50 Fires: Money and Meaning with Carl Richards

    • Careers

Gina Yashere’s career in comedy is a result of sheer resilience, determination, and…budgeting. As a standup comedian and co-creator of Bob Hearts Abishola on CBS, she’s come a long way from her upbringing as a second generation Nigerian immigrant in London. Growing up, her mother essentially gave her two career options - doctor or engineer. After becoming an elevator technician and engineer in her early 20s, she decided that comedy would ultimately make her more money, albeit with a more winding and unpredictable path. She also opens up about her struggle with gambling and impulsive buying habits, how she overcame these challenges, and ultimately became more mindful about money, investing in properties, and aggressively saving for retirement.
