Escaping debt and a cubicle to build a $150,000/yr business with Whitney Hansen

Today, we talk to Whitney Hansen, who is a personal finance coach and host of The Money Nerds, a Plutus award-winning podcast. As an adjunct professor in personal finance, she teaches overwhelmed millennials how to accelerate paying off debt and be financially independent. Some of her accomplishments include paying off $30,000 in 10 months, buying her first home at 19, and paying $472 for her master's degree.

Whitney has developed a great personal brand (WhitneyHansen.com) and her story is phenomenal. In this episode, you’ll hear where she’s at with her business, why she’s in the business, how she started from ground zero and worked her way out of it to become completely debt-free within 10 months.

You’re going to find out what she did to build a following, how she built her first online course, how she expanded from there — from in-person mentoring and teaching people of financial principles to digital business mastery. Her full-time business is now generating over $150,000 in annual revenue.

This is a complete blueprint for how to turn your expertise into a business that you can scale beyond yourself.

We’re really excited to bring you the story of Whitney Hansen.
