We chat about how Farnoosh’s parents raised her to have a healthy state of panic and how it informs her perception of personal finance today, how fear can be a signal to move forward with your big goals, FOMO, and more.

In this episode you’ll learn more about:

  • Why we need to embrace fear instead of aim for the unrealistic characteristic of “fearless”

  • How identifying, in detail, what your fear is, can give you clear steps to change it
  • What FOMO is, why it matters to your money, how the comparison game accelerates this feeling, Farnoosh’s stand-up comedy career + more
