Build financial literacy, improve your money management skills, and make the dinero work for you!

In many immigrant households, money isn’t often a topic of discussion, so financial education can be minimal—especially when a family is just trying to survive the day-to-day. Despite being the largest minority group in the United States, the Latino community still faces cultural and systemic barriers that prevent them from building wealth. As a first-generation Latina, Jannese Torres, award-winning money expert, educator, and podcaster, knows these unique challenges well. She set out to pursue the traditional American Dream, becoming the first woman in her family to graduate from college, climb the corporate ladder, and secure the six-figure paycheck, only to find herself miserable and unfulfilled. She soon realized that everything she’d been taught about money and success wasn’t as it seemed. After discovering the true meaning of wealth, Torres resolved to pave her own path, leaving the life she was told she should want for one of entrepreneurship, autonomy, and financial freedom.
In Financially Lit! Torres offers you culturally relevant and relatable personal finance advice that will allow you to finally feel seen, heard, and understood. Whether it’s the guilt you feel from being the first person to “make it” while members of your family are still struggling, or the way financial trauma manifests itself in negative and limiting beliefs around money, Torres is here to guide you through it all.
With the warmth and no-nonsense wisdom of someone who’s been there before, Torres will teach you how to:
  • set boundaries with your dinero
  • protect yourself from financial abuse
  • navigate the complicated relationship between amor and money
  • invest like a white dude—or better!
With Financially Lit! at your side, you’ll harness the powerful ways money can be used to create the life of your dreams, and be empowered to step into financial freedom.
