If you've been following me, you know I'm a huge proponent of self education. Self education through books, courses, and social media can be a great way for you to learn anything you want.
Social media has made so much information available to us, which is amazing, but it also makes it so overwhelming to learn anything, especially money and financial literacy.
I've also noticed that many of the books and resources that I recommend are all written by men and seeing how most of my audience reading these blog posts and following me on social media are women, I'm not doing a great job catering to you all. So allow me to fix that :)
The great thing about social media, apart from learning new things is meeting new people and this post couldn't have come at a better time, as I've had the pleasure of acquainting myself with a really amazing woman in the world of financial literacy. Her name is Kiana Danial AKA InvestDiva and she's been in the world of finance for over a decade now not only educating the masses, but successfully investing and making money work for her.
She's traversed this male dominated landscape and weaved her way to becoming a prominent voice in the space especially amongst women who are looking for more female voices in the world of money.
Her credentials speak for themselves, but here's a brief rundown:
She's been featured on CNN, WSJ, Forbes, Time, Fox Business
Multiple time Published Author
Adjunct Professor of Finance at Baruch College
Named one of 30 Women of Influence by New York Business Journal
Awarded Personal Finance Expert of The Year by Investment Fund Awards
In my time self-reflecting about my learning experience over the years, I've noticed I've always managed to enjoy the self-education process more when I'm learning from someone that I relate to. Someone that I can model myself after.
In the financial literacy space it's easier for males to find those kinds of role models because the market is flooded with male voices. When I read my comments, DM's, and emails from my female audience asking for more female written books, courses, and resources I get it. IT'S FINALLY CLICKED IN MY HEAD (sorry for being so slow) and that's why I wanted to write this blog post. After all I'm just here to raise awareness and point you guys in the right direction.
Kiana Danial is that role model not only for the women of this community, but for women anywhere looking to not only kill it professionally, but also balance a career with a marriage and raising a child. Kiana is the role model that our future generation of women need so they realize that there is no reason to compromise in life.
The future really is going to belong to those that are willing to create it and build it for themselves. Anyone that is financially literate is definitely going to have an edge, and if you're a woman, looking to get an edge in the financial literacy space, and want a strong female voice by your side to help you get there, then look no further.
Kiana can help you get there. She's got amazing free content on her social media profiles, and she has courses catered especially for women in helping them improve their relationship with money.
I can't stress this enough: Those that are financially literate are going to have an edge over those that are not in the future. Self education will get you there. Following and consuming the content of great minds in the space is your edge. Kiana is one of those minds in financial literacy. Use the Internet for more than just "Netflix and Chilling." Use it to better your odds for the future. Your future self will thank you
