So Money - Episode 818

Ask Farnoosh

Farnoosh Torabi

Brittney Castro is back!

She is a Certified Financial Planner and here to help us answer your money questions. She and I begin with a conversation around the finances of running a business. Brittney is the founder of Financially Wise Women and it’s a business that she really built from the ground up in her 20’s.

I know that for a lot of us listening, it’s important – especially as we look at the new year – to reassess our careers. Maybe we want to make that transition to starting a business or growing our existing business. To that end, I thought this would be a good time of year to give you some smart business tips.

Brittney is a fellow Chase ambassador and she’s here on behalf of Chase Ink to share some insights into running that business successfully, and how to find the right mentors for growing your business. It’s important to find the right financial mentors and sponsors to help make the money aspects of your business simpler.

Also, how to manage the money in your business and in your personal life at the same time.  How to create boundaries, systems and avoid dipping into your personal savings to fund your venture?

Of course, we also have your So Money questions. This week: How to afford supporting adult children? How to retool your savings after paying down student loans? Also, best ways to leverage social media to promote your brand and your business.
