Today’s episode features John Eringman a.k.a John E Finance who left his accounting job at age 25 to pursue content creation full-time.
From the beginning, John was doing everything “right”.
He got good grades, landed an accounting job, and was saving a decent % of his income.
But John knew that something was missing.
As a fun side project, he started recording short videos covering basic personal finance topics: student loan debt, credit cards, budgeting, etc.
All things that he wished he was taught in school (despite having a degree in Finance).
What John didn’t expect was how quickly these videos would gain traction.
Within just a few months, he had amassed hundreds of thousands of followers across TikTok and Instagram.
And better yet, he started to out-earn his day job through sponsorships and affiliate marketing.
Today, John works as a full-time content creator and shares financial education with millions.
