018: Geeking with the Money Nerd Whitney Hansen

018- Geeking with the Money Nerd Whitney Hansen on LIVETHEFUEL

On this episode, I connect with the other half of a previous co-host Tony Huynh, TheInstaGuy.co. Today we dive into the world of finance. Our co-host has a background in finance and has been pursuing her entrepreneurial passion for three years now. She helps people create budgets, pay off college loans quicker and plan for the future. A lot of people struggle with this regularly.

A lot of us suffer from limiting beliefs when it comes to money. One of the main reasons is because of the way we grew up. We have to remember money is just a tool, and it doesn’t need to be hard. Today’s co-host aims to put us at financial ease, today’s co-host is Whitney Hansen of The Money Nerd Podcast.
