“I think it’s really important to hire a good tax accountant, and I think this is a mistake that a lot of entrepreneurs make.” Sophia Bera
On today’s episode, we are joined by the media hacker and financial planner for today’s younger working class, Sophia Bera. Sophia founded Gen-Y Planning to cater to an under-served niche in the financial planning world. After hearing many times from experienced financial planners that it would be a horrible idea to serve this market, Sophia started the business anyway and nailed it!
On the show, we get behind the mind of Sophia and where the younger generation should put their money. We also talk about some really great investments for the younger entrepreneurs and digital nomads that are listening. We will address the importance of saving, investing, and setting some financial goals to diversify your income. Sophia also talks a lot about her media coverage and how she has been featured on dozens of popular media outlets. She will share some of her hacks to get ‘in’ with the media and exactly how she did it.
