They say the reason we’re drawn to like-minded people is hard wired.
That’s why I’d like to think I’ve always been drawn to Amanda Steinberg. She’s refreshingly REAL, in all her interactions—and despite her success.
As she says, “There’s a level of flow that you get into when you are who you are.”
And, “The more I become my authentic self, my life just starts to work and that becomes an energy that takes me to the next level.”
Amanda launched DailyWorth in 2009 to bring a fresh voice and an outsider’s perspective to personal finance. The newsletter now reaches more than 1 million subscribers (and counting).
She’s also one of Oprah’s SuperSoul 100, and in 2016 Forbes named her one of 21 New American Money Masters.
Amanda has appeared on GMA, Today, CNN, and MSNBC and is the author of Worth It: Your Life, Your Money, Your Terms.
