Moneda Moves (123): The New Generation of Wealth Builders | TikTok's The First Gen Mentor
Ring the alarms, mi gente, because there’s a new episode of Moneda Moves and this week, we spoke with a TikTok creator I follow for her fresh first gen take on money, Giovanna Gonzalez of The First Gen Mentor.
Building wealth and navigating a career when you’re first generation in a new country is hard. And Gonzalez GETS IT. She’s a proud first generation American, daughter of Mexican immigrants, first generation college graduate, and first generation white collar professional. But it’s not impossible, and it’s just a bit easier when you have a mentor in your life.
In the last ten years, Giovanna’s paid off her $50,000 collegiate and car debt, and today is debt-free with a net worth of $120,000+ and teaches hundreds of thousands of her followers how to build their own wealth via her brand and TikTok, The First Gen Mentor. On her account (@thefirstgenmentor), she teaches financial education and shares tactical career advice with more than 184K followers.
Today, we speak with her about her journey to becoming a finance educator, full-time creator mid-pandemic and how she’s taking her immigrant family with her on this financial journey.
You can continue to follow Giovanna on TikTok @thefirstgenmentor and on Instagram at @gigithefirstgenmentor, where she will be teaching money and career tips.
