In this episode we feature the founder and CEO of DailyWorth and WorthFM, Amanda Steinberg. Steinberg, who was recently recognized on Oprah Winfrey’s SuperSoul 100 list, talks to us about how she developed the concept behind the financial media company, DailyWorth, and WorthFM, a women’s digital investment platform. She shares details about her journey as an entrepreneur—both the successes and challenges—seeking capital, building a team, and expanding her businesses. Steinberg also provides valuable advice about how women can manage their finances and overcome any hurdles that may come their way.
DailyWorth is the leading digital financial media company for women with 1 million subscribers. WorthFM is a digital investment platform for women. Women control $11.2 trillion—or 39 percent—of investable assets in the United States, and this number is increasing. As women earn more, learn more, and achieve more in the workplace and in their personal lives, Steinberg is changing how women think about and manage their personal investments. In 2015, Forbes Magazine named Steinberg one of the “new money masters and financial luminaries,” shaping the future of investing. She has also appeared on Anderson Cooper 360, Good Morning America, Today, CNN, and MSNBC. Prior to DailyWorth, Steinberg was a computer programmer and CEO of Soapbxx, a web engineering company serving many of the largest social and cultural institutions in the United States. She is a graduate of Columbia University where she studied urban planning and computer science.
