I’ve been doing the media rounds talkin’ about how financial influencers – finfluencers – can harm the financial well-being of nice people on TikTok and across other social media platforms.
Finfluencers often sell unregulated courses, investments (a lot of life insurance), and partner with institutions to promote products. They may even be celebs.
The catch? Well, there’s always a dubious catch when non-credentialed people sell suspect stuff on a platform without any liability.
This week I was on EMPOWERED with host Elizabeth Naumovski to hopefully protect you from the often fraudulent world of finfluencers.
Let’s do this!
