This podcast has been on my list for a while. I finally listened and it’s freakin awesome (as Roni would say😊)! Wendy and Roni have a wonderful chatty rapport which makes you laugh. AND you learn a lot about money. Love the closing tips. ❤️
So informative while still entertaining
The hosts are a perfect pairing from 2 different generations. My adult daughter and I can both listen and learn because Wendy and Roni are so relatable and have such great rapport.
Money topics can sometimes be a little dry - but not with these two and their great collection of expert guests. The only thing that's dry is their red wine!
Just listened for the first time and Love!
Listened to the Investing 101 podcast. Appreciated the fun conversation and got some investment ideas to consider! I will definitely listen to more episodes!
