894: Sophia Parsa, Entrepreneur and Founder of Mountain Gate

June 03, 2019 • 33m

"My relationship with money is money comes and money goes. For me, it’s not the point of success. It’s important for me to be financially stable and it’s important for me to be making a lot of money, but it’s not what I consider personal success.” Sophia Parsa is a tech co-founder, Forbes 30 under 30 honoree and a very accomplished entrepreneur. She co-founded the company Toot, which is an on-demand tutoring service after her tutor bailed on her the night before a big exam in college. The night before the test, she found a new tutor, thanks to the help of a professor, but then realized there's probably a better way to connect with tutors on-demand. The idea for Toot was born. Later, Sophia launched a dinner club called Mountain Gate, where entrepreneurs gather for dinner. Through Mountain Gate, entrepreneurs can get advice, they can form business partnerships and just connect with people who are like-minded. Today, Sophia is the director of community at FabFitFun, which is occasionally a sponsor of this show.FabFitFun is a subscription box that delivers a selection of full-size premium products to your front door. We discuss Sophia's transition to working for a company and why it was important for her professional development. We also dive deep into the growing pains of the early days of entrepreneurship, how to score some investment capital and what she plans to do with her money right now. Follow her on Instagram @SophiaParsa and her business @Mountaingate.

357: Arteen Arabshahi, Venture Capitalist from Forbes 30 Under 30

February 16, 2016 • 48m

Today I have a family friend on the show, a good friend and college buddy of my brother, Todd. Arteen Arabshahi is here. He recently made Forbes' 30 Under 30 list for 2016 in the Venture Capital category. Arteen is just one of those guys where you just know he’s on to accomplishing big things. In 2013, Arteen joined as #2 at Karlin Ventures, an LA-based early stage fund with investments such as Gyft, Cirrosecure, Laurel & Wolf and others. Before investing in enterprise software and marketplaces he spearheded the launch of Build in LA, an online community for digital entrepreneurs and innovators. Outside of his work with startups, Arteen sits on the board of TEDxVenice Beach and he's an active supporter of To Write Love On Her Arms (TWLOHA), a non-profit raising awareness and support for mental health. He also teaches at General Assembly and The Unique CAMP. Arteen is a natural people person. I’ve known him for many years now. It’s something that all of us identify in him. He’s an extrovert, so how does he harness that to then build and advance in his career? How does Arteen make decisions when it comes to the next steps in his career? He doesn’t really listen to a lot of people. He talks about his strategy. Plus, how does this So Money Millennial manage his money? What are some of the investments that haven’t done so well for him and how is he trying to make the most of his paycheck? For more information visit www.somoneypodcast.com.

197: Jeff Yeager, "The Ultimate Cheapskate"

July 27, 2015 • 42m

What’s your definition of cheap? Do you think you’re cheap? Is the person you’re living with – cheap? I got into trouble once because I went on ABC news and talked about MY personal definition of cheap versus frugal…To me, being cheap means wasting time and energy to save money, being inconsiderate or rude or harmful in your pursuit of saving money. And as an example I mentioned some forms of extreme couponing. And boy did that get the couponers MAD! I got SO much hate email…! Now, not all couponing is bad. But I know there are people out there who spend hours a day to cut coupons and all they save is $20 or $30. $20 or $30 is not insignificant BUT when you account for all that time and energy and perhaps the fact that you were cutting coupons while your son needed your help with his science project…(I’m making this up!) that perhaps you’re not being frugal. You’re being CHEAP. And if you’re going to hate me for saying that, that’s OK by me! And all of this brings me to TODAY’s guest. Jeff Yeager, dubbed “The Ultimate Cheapskate” by Matt Lauer on NBC’s Today Show, specializes in teaching others how to spend smart in order to spend less and living frugally. He is also an accomplished author of several books on the topic, including “Don’t Throw That Away!” “The Cheapskate Next Door” and “The Ultimate Cheapskate’s Road Map to True Riches”. He hosts The Cheap Life on YouTube which also provides video content about living the good life at a fraction of the cost. If you’re an AARP member, perhaps you may recognize today’s guest as he is one of their saving’s experts.
