About the Author
YANELY ESPINAL is a Brooklyn-born ball of energy! She's an educator with a gift for storytelling and a passion for explaining financial concepts in a straightforward way. While working as an elementary school teacher, she decided to change her financial life by paying off $20,000 of debt in just 18 months. In 2015 she started MissBeHelpful, a YouTube channel that now has over 2.5 million views, to help others learn the money skills she never learned in school. Yanely is also the director of educational outreach for Next Gen Personal Finance, a nonprofit working to ensure that every high school student gets a full semester of personal finance education.

"Yanely is the master of the financial education bait and switch-she gently bamboozles you into thinking you're just reading engaging, hilarious, super-relatable stories, when secretly she's Trojan-horsing in all the money lessons you need. And because of that, Yanely's teachings stick. Mind Your Money feels like I'm chillin' on a couch talking life with my brilliant money bestie. Not only is this the money book I wish I had in my twenties, but it's the money book I'm going to hold onto until I'm gray and ashy; she reminds me that money can be an open, nonjudgmental, and fun learning space for all of us."

- Berna Anat, financial hype woman known online as @HeyBerna

"There are books that talk at you about money, and then there are books that make you feel like the author is sitting right next to you. Mind Your Money is relatable, funny, and full of money tips that will make you feel like you've found the perfect money mentor."

- Kevin L. Matthews II, bestselling author and founder of Building Bread

"Mind Your Money is the perfect guide for anyone just starting their financial journey. Using simple language and stories from her unique upbringing, Yanely demystifies personal finance and provides practical advice on how to manage your money in the twenty-first century. If you need help getting out of debt, understanding the banking system, or getting started with your investments, then this is the book for you."

- Nick Maggiuli, author of Just Keep Buying and blogger at Of Dollars and Data

"Yanely is that friend we all wish we had when we started making money. The friend you could go to with all your questions because they would never shame or judge you. Reading Mind Your Money is like having Yanely right by your side while you navigate all the different challenges and opportunities created by money. Her personal story of overcoming poverty while living in one of the most affluent cities in the world shines a light on how much financial literacy can change a person's life."

- Delyanne Barrios, founder of Delyanne the Money Coach and host of CNN's Diversifying podcast

"Yanely brings kindness, compassion, and straightforward honesty to her writing. Her writing will make you actually laugh out loud at times. She shares her stories of someone who experienced the ups and downs of figuring out how to handle her financial life and lays out exactly how you can avoid some of the same mistakes (or recover if you've already had a misstep or two)."

- Erin Lowry, author of the four-part Broke Millennial series
