If you educate a man you educate an individual, but if you educate a woman you educate a family (nation). — African Proverb

Educating women is more than just transforming the life of an individual. When you educate a woman, it’s a ripple effect, their families, communities, and even the nation is benefited.

As we go on to celebrate Hispanic Heritage month, in this episode, I’m bringing in the Latina generational financial curse breaker, Janet Cruz Padrón, who’s helping women to reach their full potential through financial education and empowerment!

Janet is the founder of Latina Money, a financial empowerment platform designed to ignite and fuel wealth creation for the modern Latina. She is also the host of The Latina Money podcast where she talks about money and wealth with successful entrepreneurs, creatives, and industry leaders to share actionable tips that’ll help the modern latina women build wealth and live the life they deserve.

Janet will share money taboos and financial mistakes that she has experienced, so you don’t fall into the same trap.

Don’t miss this amazing opportunity to build a stronger financial legacy for you and your family as Janet talks about the importance of creating a solid financial foundation, and rewrite cultural narratives so you create long-lasting wealth!
