Farnoosh Torabi

2023 Speaker

FARNOOSH TORABI is one of America’s leading personal finance authorities — hooked on helping you live your richest, happiest life. As editor at large of CNET Money, multi-bestselling financial author, former CNBC host and creator of the Webby-nominated podcast So Money, Torabi has become one of the country’s favorite go-to money experts. The New York Times calls her advice, “perfectly practical.” Torabi’s award-winning and critically-acclaimed podcast, So Money, has surpassed 18 million downloads with listeners in over 160 countries, thanks to its one-of-a-kind interviews and deep conversations about money. On the show she spotlights leading experts, authors, and influencers – from Arianna Huffington to Margaret Cho, Queen Latifah and Tim Gunn – about their financial perspectives, money failures, and habits. She also answers listeners’ personal financial questions each week. Torabi was born in Worcester, Massachusetts to immigrant parents who left Iran in the late 1970s in search of a more fulfilling life. Money may have been tight (really tight), but it was never a taboo in the household and for that, Torabi is eternally grateful. It’s what ultimately inspired her to lead a mission to help others achieve financial greatness. The author of multiple books, Torabi’s latest bestseller is entitled When She Makes More: The Truth About Love and Life for a New Generation of Women. Her next book is an insightful memoir, entitled A Healthy State of Panic, coming out in Fall 2023.
