LinaHa ,

Highly recommend for everyone

First of all, love the name of the podcast! I’m going to be a new grad in 2021 and my final year of school has been focused on learning about financial management - anything from the FIRE movement to filing taxes with the right resources and professionals. It was so refreshing to discover Gloria’s podcast on a wide range of topics, the conversations flow so well and I always learn something. Stay healthy and grow wealthy!
