Turning your passion into PROFIT with Janesse Torres-Rodriguez

It’s a fact that many people today have different struggles with finances. 

Others are not getting the cash flow they need or some of those who have been working in the company for so long but didn’t even see any progress in their lives. 

Being underpaid and overworked without getting the salary they truly deserve is something that usually happens to many people out there. 

And it also happened to my guest today. 

With all of that sh*t that happened to Janesse, she then realised that she lost more and more connection with her voice and what she actually wanted. 

Until she reached the point in her life where things had to change and the future turned in her favour. 

Janesse never had any plan to have a business and to be financially independent in her 30s. That’s why she considered herself an accidental entrepreneur. 

Look at her now! She is a successful personal finance podcaster. She is the creator of the leading personal finance podcast for Latinas, which is one of the top podcasts on Apple. 

She has been preaching the gospel of money and really helping and empowering people with knowledge about these spaces. 

You may all know that a lot of communities out there get default and that’s something my guest doesn’t want to happen. That’s now her mission and that’s what she does. 

So to learn more about the success story of Janesse and how she did it and what she is doing now, please click the play button and listen to the entire podcast. 

A quick reminder to all of you, my queen, you need to stop trying to conform to a system that wasn’t built for us. 

Take care!
