You’d think when you arrive in the U.S. getting set up financially would be easy. Not so fast. When Warren Hogarth of Empower came to the U.S. from Austrailia in 2004 he quickly realized he was at a disadvantage with all things financial – getting credit and building your credit was no easy task.
On This Podcast Episode:
I had a candid conversation with Warren about his transition to the U.S. and how “the system” attempted to keep him down when it came to his finances. Luckily, he’s sharing some of the money lessons he learned during that time as well as the journey he’s taken to turn the disadvantages into a new app, Empower.
Warren spent eight years as a Partner at the #1 VC firm in the world, Sequoia Capital. They’ve invested in companies like Square, LinkedIn, WhatsApp, and AirBnB, and Warren stood shoulder-to-shoulder with founders to build large, enduring businesses (3 went from zero to over $1 billion).
If you take away one thing for this episode, it should be his best piece of money advice (stay to the end of the episode to hear his inspirational take away).
