Super helpful and refreshing

Just started listening a couple months ago. I'm a new mom and am trying to refocus on finances for my family and little one's future. This podcast is helpful to keep motivated to refocus my long term goals without experiencing any guilt or shame over my financial mishaps prior to having a child. I find the topics motivating and guests relatable. Thanks for all that you do!

Listen with my daughters!

I love this podcast for many reasons, but mostly because it speaks to me as a Gen X woman “who makes more.” This podcast has made me think about money and investing in new ways and the guests are always interesting and informative. But the best part is playing it for my daughters, ages, 11 & 10, who love Farnoosh and are learning about money from a true role model.

Empowering, Enlightening and Uplifting

So Money is an amazing podcast that stands out because of Farnoosh’s meticulous and intentional approach to relatable topics that affect underprivileged and underrepresented folks in a way that does not make you feel less than for not having a grasp on your personal finances. In addition, she always features and promotes other podcasts that will help everyone on their personal and financial journeys, even if they would potentially rival her own. Her dedication to ensuring that people can feel they can take control of their financial journeys and removing the shame of being uneducated in this space is the reason why I love listening to So Money!
