Jannese Torres-Rodriguez has found her mission in creating financial literacy for the Latinx community. When Jannese left her high-paying 9-to-5 job, she knew she wanted a life for herself that revolved around freedom. So she learned how to blog, to create successful side-hustles (that would soon become her main hustle), and did everything she could to better her financial literacy. In the process, she became a personal finance expert, leading her to start Yo Quiero Dinero, a podcast specifically devoted to educating Latinas and people of color on finance.

Jannese has a really critical perspective for anyone working in finance to know. She touched on:

  • The history of BiPOC communities and the financial industry
  • Creating a diverse team
  • Working with communities of color
  • The importance of representation in the industry

Jannese has a social media presence that is both informative and fun — she even has her own food blog! Check her out here:
