Check out episode 37 of Yo Quiero Dinero, personal finance podcast for the modern Latina. Available wherever you listen to podcasts!
Surprise, we’ve got another bonus episode for you! In episode 37, we have Valeria (Valery) Vargas from @thedaintydollar . Valery is a Latina, first-gen immigrant and a self-described “bookworm.” Her love of reading is what brought her to personal finance. After slaying $76,000+ of debt, she is now a money coach within her own LLC, all while maintaining a full-time 9-5 job!
Valeria (Valery) Vargas is a 28 year old Latina, a first generation immigrant, board game enthusiast, bookworm, and entrepreneur. She graduated from Rutgers University with her Bachelors in Psychology. She the owner and creator of The Dainty Dollar, a money coaching service that empowers women and millennials to pay off thousands in debt, organize their finances, and build wealth to fearlessly pursue their dreams.
Valery is a DACA (Deferred Action For Childhood Arrivals) recipient, and shares her experience of being an immigrant in America while trying to manifest the American Dream. You can follow Valery on Instagram & Facebook and check out her blog and money coaching services at The Dainty Dollar.
I know a lot of women of color out here might be scared to launch their idea into a full-on biz, but Valery is proof that it can be done: you can have your 9-5 AND launch your side-hustle. Neither of us will tell you it’s easy though, but it’s totally worth the effort!
In Episode 37, Valery and I talk about:
- DACA, Immigration fees and the impact they place on wealth-building journeys⠀
- Embarking on a debt payoff journey with your boo
- How to stay motivated on this months long journey that is paying off debt⠀
- Juggling a full-time job, side hustle, AND a relationship (hint: this is NOT easy and is definitely trial and error)⠀
- Some of the steps she took in growing her biz, including knowing when to outsource tasks⠀
If you’ve ever been intimidated by our long episodes, this is a great one to get all that you love about YQD, but in a condensed version. Gracias Valery for sharing your story!⠀
