Torres-Rodriguez, whose side hustles paid off over $39,000 in student loans in 17 months, has begun implementing FIRE (Financial Independence/Retire Early) strategies into her finances. She touches on a number of topics related to wealth building in the Latinx community on her well-known podcast, "Yo Quiero Dinero." You can visit her site for gems on thriving financially.
