    How To Become A First Gen Millionaire | Genesis Hinckley | Genuinely Genesis

    Episode 255 talks about how to become a first gen millionaire, featuring Genesis Hinckley of Genuinely Genesis. Listen now!
    Genesis has done it all! She's navigated motherhood raising a confident and curious little boy, worked in the corporate world as a Business Analyst at Google, curated content on social media sharing Spanglish financial literacy for low income communities, invested in 2 short-term rental properties, and is now working on publishing her first novel.
    On top of all of that, she actively seeks to heal her inner child wounds of growing up low income, understanding her identity as a Bolivian-American in the United States, and what it means to truly be a 'secure' person.
    Genesis believes there's a seed to be planted in all of us. But before that seed can flourish, it needs a stable foundation. Genesis is actively providing valuable insights for her primarily Spanglish-speaking audience to help them build a solid financial foundation so they can live their American dreams.

    How to Stop Playing Small | Audrey Diaz | The Dream Lab

    How to Stop Playing Small | Audrey Diaz | The Dream Lab

    Episode 253 features how to stop playing small, with Audrey Diaz, Co-Founder of The Dream Lab. We talk about how to stop playing small. Listen now!
    Audrey Diaz is a Life & Confidence Coach with over 10 years of coaching experience helping Latina women build confidence in themselves by creating solid habits. Through her framework of developing daily disciplines for women to build out grounding techniques that nurture their mind, body, and soul, Audrey takes a holistic approach to ensure that her clients are thriving as a whole, and not just in the workplace.
    Born of Dominican parents, Audrey understands first hand how daughters of immigrants are prone to struggle with indecision, setting boundaries, and finding their voice. The result is a client who is self-aware, self-confident, and able to trust herself and her vision for the future.
    Life Coaching for Audrey was a result of her own evolution from years of marketing in the music industry to helping run her family’s three supermarkets, where she is still a partner today. She is also a mom of 3 boys and has recently picked up Salsa dancing on her free time, all of which keep her life full of joy.

For everyone

I found your show one day while listening to other financial podcasts. I want to put out there that I’m not a Latina but an around the way black girl who feels seen and heard by your words. You make finance, understandable, funny, to the point without making me feel stupid for following what I learned growing up in a minority household. This is for people like me ❤️

Latinas Thriving ❤️

I’ve been listening to this podcast for a few months and it has been so healing and empowering to learn from different women of color their experiences and giving me permission to continue working through my challenges as an entrepreneur! Thank you Janesse for this platform and making it relatable!

La Doctora Mejía ,

Empowering Wealth Building Podcast 🔥

Celebrate “Yo Quiero Dinero,” the Latina wealth building podcast! I highly recommend each episode as Jannese authentically invites fellow first-gen voices to share experiences in finance and wealth building. It’s more than just money; this podcast has helped me explore my money mindset and work to overcome money blocks. Feeling seen and affirmed in these episodes adds a powerful layer to my financial journey. #latinabuildwealth #latinasareinvestors
