    1197: Real Estate Investing in Black Communities with Lisa Phillips

    As featured in Farnoosh's column for NextAdvisor, guest Lisa Phillips is a real estate investor who specializes in Black communities. Rather than zero in on up-and-coming markets where you can buy low and flip high, Phillips is pouring her money into the same neighborhoods in which she was raised: predominantly Black and brown, working class towns where you can find fixer-uppers for $30,000 or less. With smart and strategic upgrades, she’s proving it’s possible to turn properties into welcoming and safe homes.
    Today she is the founder of Affordable Real Estate Investments, runs the Facebook community Sub30KMastermind and is the author of the book Investing in Rental Properties for Beginners.

    1192: Why We Should (and Can) All Be Millionaires with Rachel Rodgers

    Our discussion around women and wealth continues with guest Rachel Rodgers, founder of HelloSeven and author of the the highly anticipated book We Should All Be Millionaires (out May 4). In her book Rachel teaches women how to make the kind of money that will give them the authority to make meaningful changes in their communities and close the opportunity gap that exists today. It’s not just about being wealthy, it’s about having a mindset of wealth.
    More about Rachel: She is a business coach, mother, wife, intellectual property lawyer and CEO who says that according to the “State of Women-Owned Businesses” 2019 report, women own 51% of all businesses in the US but only bring in 4.2% of the revenue. For women of color, those numbers are even less.

Trying to get my life back after the pandemic job losses caused me

My name is Twannetta and I am so happy to be here and able to drop this review for Farnoosh. When I tell you she’s been more like the big sister I never had, I mean it. My job was eliminated at the beginning of the pandemic, I’ll never forget that terrible day, it’s probably etched in my heart forever. However, Farnoosh to the rescue! I found her podcast and it was the only other company that I kept during my long walks trying to sort out my plan of attack to find a job, stop the financial bleeding and somehow stay positive through it all while the world around me was falling apart. Her easy to follow advice, powerful guests and her easy going vibe truly helped me to get through those early dark days. I can’t thank you enough for your advocacy for women of color ( that’s me) and all that you do. So sorry for the long review, I actually have so much more to say but won’t take up all of your time. Thank you so much for all you do!

Finding the confidence to take charge of my financial future

I graduated from college in May 2020 with a substantial amount of private student debt, no experience with budgeting, and no plan for my financial future. Money was a stressful topic in my household growing up, and I didn't feel like I could talk to anyone in my life about the immense anxiety I felt when it came to personal finance. When I found So Money, it was the first time I was able to think about my finances without getting overwhelmed. Thanks to Farnoosh’s clear and accessible approach to explaining personal finance topics, I have found the confidence to take charge of my financial future. I am proud to say that in the past year, I have a fully-funded emergency fund, have refinanced my student loans (am now paying $300 less each month), am meeting my employer’s match on my 401(k), have maxed out my HSA, and have a brokerage account that I regularly contribute to twice a month. A year ago, I wouldn’t have been able to tell you what any of that meant! Now, because I’ve seen how much I can accomplish in just a year, I ENJOY setting and meeting financial goals because it makes me feel so empowered. Thank you so, so much Farnoosh for helping me get started with my journey - looking forward to more episodes and to continued growth!

Helping a young widow out

I have been listening to this podcast for a month a half now. I am 36, my husband died almost a year ago, at 38 years old. After his death, I was entitled to his life insurance and 401k. I started listening to Farnoosh because I want to make sure that I am being EXTREMELY smart with this money. My husband was all about into saving for a house and our retirement. Now, I need to do that for myself. Thank you for this podcast! Any advice into what is the best way to use this money?
