Former math teacher, Rita-Soledad Fernandez, now personal Finance Educator, shares with us her financial journey.

Her Financial Literacy journey started while she was on sick leave from work by reading books and watching YouTube videos which gave her the information to create wealth.

Some of Soledad's major achievements were: paying off over $23K in debt from Student Loans, creating a six-month emergency fund and maxing out her husband's 401 K and IRA's for both of them.

Soledad's tips to achieve financial wellness as a family:

  • Creating a emergency fund
  • Being intentional about money coming our way and coming out
  • Investing for retirement

She also shares about the financial habits she has taught her children:

  • Budgeting
  • Delaying gratification
  • Taking good care of the things they have
  • Building credit history (for her godson who is 13 years old)

She decided to create a support system by creating a community Wealth para Todos to find other people that would talk Dinero to learn together about creating wealth.

Soledad's main takeaways from her journey:

  • Start investing as soon as you can
  • Get comfortable with fear and failure
