She also is the creator of The Money Nerds Podcast. The show’s concept is very similar to Masters of Money. If you love this podcast you should definitely be subscribed to Whitney’s.

When she’s not writing about money, podcasting, and creating financial plans for others, Whitney can be found taking spontaneous road trips, reading in coffee shops, or mentoring other entrepreneurs. See it all on her Instagram account.

In this episode, Whitney shares how she’s been able to make such huge financial progress at such an early age. She also shares her impressive debt payoff story, buying a home before she turned 20, and paying for grad school for less than the price of a new TV. I know you’ll be inspired.
