LearnVest-Inspired Book, Financially Fearless, Tops Charts as Best Seller


For a fintech company to succeed outside of the digital realm in the physical world of print is not an easy feat. It makes sense, however, that a company with as much spunk as LearnVest has been able to make a splash with a book.

Alexa Von Tobel, LearnVest Founder and CEO, has been a rising star in the personal finance realm lately. The New York-based CEO released her own book, Financially Fearless, at the end of last year, and it has recently been listed as the #5 New York Times Best Sellers list in the category of Advice, How-to, and Miscellaneous.

Additionally, it reached:

    • Wall Street Journal Best Seller #1 hardcover in Business and #5 Hardcover in Non-Fiction categories 
    • Chicago Tribune Best Seller #5 in Hardcover Non-Fiction category 
    • Apple iBooks Best of 2013
    • Amazon Best Seller (during the weeks of December 22 and 29, 2013)
