Dearest Fintech Fam, we have some wildly exciting content coming up for you in the next few weeks!
Not only did I have the pleasure of recording with the magnanimous Nicole Casperson and doing another Family Episode with Kristen Anderson and Sasha Pilch this week, but we checked a BIG’N off the bucket list, fam…
Itsy bitsy lil hinty hint…I had the pleasure of interviewing someone with the same initials as me in the fintech space this week…ZP…in fintech…any guesses? 👀👀
You’ll see 😅
But first, we debuted our first ‘Are You Human’ episode with Alex last week and it’s time for Episode #2 of Are You Human, fam! Let’s get to it…
THIS WEEK’S EPISODE 🎙️
We’re back with another family episode of Are You Human! This go-round Kristen and I are joined in-studio with Eli “Hard Stop” Wachs, who returns for his second appearance on the show. These are so much fun to do face to face and you’ll be able to tell we had a blast recording this for you.
Eli is the Co-Founder and CEO of Footprint as well as an avid haberdashery connoisseur. We deep dive into Eli’s youth, his first credit card and bank, we find out if he is actually “Fintech”, we test his frugality and find out the happiest day of his life among other things. Enjoy!
ICYMI: What is “Are You Human?”
The goal is to dive in to the humanity and habits of the most fascinating people in fintech and business. How do they stay sane (are they sane…), are they frugal, and how are they at adulting in general? Ya know, the important questions!
It wouldn’t be an “Are You Human” episode without the co-hostest with the mostest, Kristen Anderson. Is this an excuse for us to hang out and have some fun? Maybe, yes.
This show is ever-evolving so PLEASE hit us up with any and all feedback you may have.
