Here at The Root we’ve always loved, praised, and centered Black literature in the broader conversation. Each week hosts Danielle Belton and Maiysha Kai sit down with an author we love to talk about their work, what inspires them, and what they hope to contribute to the culture at large. Guests so far include Nikole Hannah Jones, Brittney Cooper, Ijeoma Oluo, Morgan Jerkins, and Claudia Rankine.
This week we're talking with the brilliant Tiffany Aliche—personal finance educator, and author of the new book Get Good With Money: 10 Simple Steps to Becoming Financially Whole. Listen to hear how Tiffany moved from self-publishing to working with one of the biggest publishing houses in the world, why she felt the urgency to write this particular book, and her own personal journey of going from crushing debt to financial security and success.
