Amanda Steinberg launched DailyWorth in 2009 to bring a fresh voice and an outsider’s perspective to personal finance.

A successful computer programmer, Amanda was earning six figures, but she had built such an expensive life that even her best attempts at saving and investing were wiped out by life’s unexpected complications.

Frustrated by her inability to build net worth, she launched DailyWorth from an attic office in Philadelphia with a newborn in her arms. Today, DailyWorth’s newsletter reaches more than 1 million subscribers and growing.

In 2015, she started digital investing service, WorthFM, which received front-page coverage in The New York Times Business section

Oprah selected her for the inaugural SuperSoul 100, and Forbes named her one of 21 New American Money Masters. Amanda has also appeared on GMA, Today, CNN, and MSNBC. She’s also the author of Worth It: Your Life, Your Money, Your Terms released in February 2017.

Financial planning, budgeting, and goal-setting only work for a small percentage of people. Worth It flips the paradigm on “financial advice” for women and delivers it in fresh, unexpected ways.
