On the show today we welcome Tori Dunlap of “Her First 100k”. Tori is a financial advocate who educates millennial women and other underserved communities on financial literacy. She’s on track to save her first 100k by before her 26th birthday and has made it her mission to help others pay off debt, save, invest and get their money right so they can be in the driver seat of their life.                                                                                       Her father taught her about money from the age of 9 when he helped her start her first company, a vending machine business. It was this experience that kick started her savings account and her entrepreneurial drive. Some years later, after getting her college degree she began to see her female friends get paid less than their male counterparts and miss out on career opportunities because of being female. She knew she had to fight back.   In this episode Tori talks to us about her financial upbringing, her business, her financial philosophies and her passion for disrupting the current financial ecosystem that is overwhelmingly dominated by older, straight, white males.   Highlights: Owning 15 vending machines by the end of high school Growing up with privilege Take that loose change to the bank, avoid Coinstar machines A crash course in marketing after landing a huge job outside of college Becoming a financial advocate for the underserved Landing a job when you don’t meet the requirements The relationship between privilege and money Getting ahead financially in a system that wasn’t built for you The guilt and shame surrounding money Priority based spending Automating your savings Not getting credit for your success   Key Takeaway: A lot of the current financial guru’s aren’t in touch with the financial issues of the millennial generation. It’s our job to make our voice heard and disrupt their antiquated financial advice.   Paychecks & Balances Websites: Instagram: Twitter:   Tori Dunlap: Website: Facebook: Instagram: Twitter: LinkedIn:
