Interviewer:

Good morning, Farnoosh.

Farnoosh:

Oh, good morning.

Interviewer:

Do you mind if we ask you a few questions?

Farnoosh:

Sure, I have to be on set for Chase in just a minute, but fire away.

Interviewer:

Did you always want to be a financial expert?

Farnoosh:

Always! No, I actually wanted to be an actress.

Interviewer:

Do you give your kids an allowance?

Farnoosh:

They're too young right now, but someday sure.

Interviewer:

Thanks, we'll catch you upstairs.

Upstairs, the blue elevator door opens and Farnoosh steps out to a reception desk, where a cup of latte is waiting for her.

Interviewer:

What are you a bigger fan of, credit or debit?

Farnoosh:

Credit, all the way. Thank you.

Interviewer:

Who has a better credit score, you or your husband?

Farnoosh:

He does, but it is very close.

Interviewer:

What's the most popular question you get asked on your podcast?

Farnoosh:

How to make more money.

Interviewer:

What's one of your favorite splurges?

Farnoosh:

Anything that saves me time, or anything that gives me life, like this latte.

Interviewer:

Seems reasonable. How can people improve their credit?

Farnoosh:

First, check your credit score. Also know how you got there.

Director:

Ready for you on set.

On screen:

Before entering the studio, Farnoosh takes a sip of her latte. A woman passes by, holding a prop—a large Chase Slate credit card. Farnoosh checks her mobile phone.

Farnoosh:

Thanks. And why you're at it, sign up for fraud alerts, because no, I did not spend $400 on pet grooming.

Interviewer:

What's your favorite part about giving financial advice?

Farnoosh:

That it can change someone's life.

Interviewer:

What are you doing to celebrate Credit Awareness Month?

Farnoosh:

This video!
