181: How to Self-Care Yourself to Financial Independence with Rita-Soledad Fernández Paulino
This week our special guest is Rita-Soledad (@wealthparatodos) who discusses the topic of how BIPOC, women, and LGBTQ+ gente can self-care themselves to financial independence. Soledad is a queer Mexican-American former math teacher turned personal finance educator and financial coach studying to become a Certified Financial Planner. As the CEO of Wealth Para Todos LLC, Soledad is determined to make sure more BIPOC, women, and LGBTQ+ folk learn how to self-care themselves to financial independence so they can work because they want to, not because they have to.
In this episode we cover: her journey of self-care and financial independence and how it started with her taking a medical leave from her teaching job due to ongoing health issues, how she believed that she couldn’t build wealth due to her physical and mental health issues, having children, and living in a high cost of living area, how everything changed in her thirties once she started to become WELL-thy, through taking care of her body, regulating her nervous system, and thought work, the relationship between self-care and financial independence, and why it’s so critical for BIPOC, women and the LGBTQ+ community to have access to this information, and what you can do today to focus on your own healing and wealth building poco a poco
