#007 – On this episode, Mayra tells you all the details as to why, how, and what you can expect with the podcast name change.
[0:00] I am back and I am so excited to tell you all the things that have to do with a name change, why did it, how it came about, and what you can look forward to in the future.
[0:16] Welcome to Debt Free Latina, the podcast where you can finally realize your dream of being debt free and feeling peace about your financial future. And now your host, Mayra Alejandra Garcia.
[0:35] Hola, hola. Thank you so much for being here. I appreciate you listening. And I cannot wait to tell you all the things that came with this change. Now, first I want to tell you, every episode prior to this one, so episode one through six, will still remain All Things Money. And I decided not to take down the content because it has so much value. It has great tips and content. And I thought, just going forward, it’ll be Debt Free Latina. So every episode going forward will be a little different, and I’ll tell you what you can expect.
[1:18] But first, I want to tell you why I did this change. The reason was, this is who I am. I am Latina, I am debt free, and I just thought, this really aligned with who I am and who I want to serve. And so that’s the reason why this change came about. How I came to this conclusion was actually a really cool conversation that I had with my small group. I meet with a small group of entrepreneurs weekly, and I was really only looking to change my podcast cover for All Things Money, and so I was working with a graphic designer in Fiverr, and he sent me one of the drafts, and I showed it to my small group. And one of my small group members, Mark, who is a marketing genius, saw the t-shirt I was wearing on the podcast cover, which was my Debt Free Latina shirt, and he’s like, that is a cool shirt. And he’s like, that should be the name of your podcast. And it hit me like, you’re right, that should be the name of my podcast, why did I think of that before? (Spanish phrase 2:40). You can just move forward. So I stopped everything. I changed my website. I changed the podcast. I mean, all the things.
[2:56] So, what you can look forward to going forward, is we’re going to be talking about topics that are aligned to our culture. So how you can become debt free, how you can build wealth, and some of the things that we value as Latinos. For example, I grew up in a home where my father would financially support my grandmother in Mexico. So these are little things that I really haven’t seen the financial world talk about in mainstream, because it really aligns, or really has to do with our culture. And it was difference that we value, that a lot of other cultures just simply don’t or don’t really talk about. So, these are the little things that I will be focused on, I will be touching on, and I would love to hear from you. If you have a question, feel free to reach out to me. I’m also going to be doing Clubhouse question and answers. So if you are interested in joining, and asking a question, feel free to let me know. If you’re not on clubhouse, send me a DM, I might have some invitations. This is an invitation only app right now, and you do need to have an Apple phone in order to have Clubhouse right now. I know they’re working on an Android app, but it is invitation only, so if you’re not invited, you can’t get in just quite yet. Let me know. Send me a DM on Instagram, I’m @debtfree.latina, and you could be on the show, if you of course give me permission on Clubhouse to record our conversation. So I look forward to hearing from you. And I want to… Feel free to send me a message if you have a question, and I will be more than happy to answer it here on the show.
