Amazing podcast for anyone on their financial literacy podcast

I love the concept of this podcast as someone who’s just started their financial literacy journey. Added to my weekly podcast playlist :)

Cabsav77 ,

Inspiring, Educational & Entertaining!

As someone who grew up not being taught how to manage money, and never having much of it to go around, listening too or reading anything relating to finances has been a bit of a sore spot and something that bored me. However, this podcast is making me see money in a different light and has given me many nuggets of wisdom to apply in my own life.
I love listening to other peoples stories, so listening to Amanda interviewing people is right up my ally.
I’ve binged all the episodes so far and I can’t wait to hear more!
