Compound Interest is a Snowball with Evan Wohl



Remember being a kid and the joy you felt making the biggest snowman from just three small snowballs? Watching those little snowballs getting bigger and bigger with each roll… 

As an adult, the experience changes from creating snowmen to generating compound interest.

In this episode, Iván Watanabe welcomes colleague Evan Wohl to dive deeper into compound interest, and how you can get it working for you. 

Iván and Evan discuss:

  • Why Warren Buffett claims compound interest to be the eighth wonder of the world
  • How compound interest works
  • The ripple effect one change can have on an entire balance sheet
  • Why you should see your finances as an ecosystem, not just as single silos
  • And more
