Episode 365: Become a Profitable & Successful Investor with Mabel Nunez

Mabel Nunez is the founder & Chief Education Officer at Girl$ on The Money - a stock market investing education company targeted toward individuals who are underrepresented in the investing world. Mabel grew up in the South Bronx as an immigrant from the Dominican Republic, with limited resources & a strong emphasis on education from her father. She learned very little about personal finance or investing while in school until she was in college, where she took an investing analysis class which began her passion for investing & personal finance. Mabel holds both a Bachelor of Science and an MBA in Finance. However, most of what she's learned about investing came from experience. Mabel's mission is to teach what she's learned (and continues to learn) since starting her investing journey. She is passionate about transforming investing beginners into confident, knowledgeable, and profitable investors. In this episode, Mabel shares: How fear kept her from starting to invest, despite graduating as a finance major, reading articles and listening to shows on investing How she has been investing for 16 years with a focus on individual stocks in a self-directed taxable account. She invests in companies with long-term potential, rarely selling stocks and preferring a Warren Buffett-style strategy That investing in ETFs or index funds, such as the S&P 500, can be a simpler alternative to buying individual stocks & advises against buying "cheap stocks" or investing in unproven companies. How she struggled to tell her parents about quitting her 9-5 stable job to pursue her passion & the challenge of balancing personal dreams with family expectations, particularly for immigrant families + much more!

Episode 359: How these Two First-Gen Latine Siblings Went From Paying Off Debt to Six Figure Net Worths

This week on the Journey to Launch Podcast we’re featuring Israel and Sunem Tovar, two first-gen Latine siblings who empower people to use money to live their lives on their own terms. They discuss their financial journeys & achievements by sharing how Israel built a six-figure net worth by the age of 26 on a teacher salary and as a first-gen, openly gay latino, and how Sunem built a $250,000 investment portfolio and holds a Master's in finance. Despite attending prestigious institutions, Israel still felt that he initially lacked financial literacy. Sunem also reveals that she didn’t learn much about personal finance while pursuing her Master’s in Finance. It was through their siblings sharing information with each other that they discovered personal finance blogs & podcasts which helped them save, invest, pay off debt and start the journey towards financial independence. In this episode Israel and Sunem discuss: Their backgrounds, experiences with education, and how they navigated financial challenges. Israel’s journey to building wealth, starting with a $45,000 teaching salary, buying a house, and making strategic financial decisions, such as living with roommates and aggressively investing in retirement accounts. Sunem’s experience of paying off $42,000 in debt, managing multiple side hustles, and transitioning to aggressive investing. Their upbringing in a Latino culture that emphasizes strong family bonds which shaped their desire to share knowledge with their siblings and build wealth together The ethical considerations of investing in real estate, the importance of being intentional with spending + so much more.
