    Lucinda Pike is the CEO of Enrich HK where she and her team empower migrant domestic workers to invest in themselves. They support migrant domestic workers in Hong Kong to overcome financial difficulties and achieve their goals and dreams. Although domestic workers may earn higher salaries in Hong Kong than in their home countries, a lack of financial literacy can often leave them ill-equipped to deal with the enormous pressures on their finances, including recruitment debt, family obligations, extortionate interest rates or scams. Enrich graduates learn how to plan an save for the future and make informed financial decisions. I learnt so much in this interview and I hope my listeners will also find it very enlightening and interesting.

Hosted by a pro!

Jules is a fantastic host and a total podcast pro. Highly recommended!

Lenalovesparty ,

Africans = catfish??? Racially discriminatory

On the episode about dating during covid, the guest said that “catfishes are typically black men from African countries”, and that you might “expecting to meet a Norwegian but it’s actually someone rather black” and she doesn’t have anything “against Africans.” For a podcast that is supposedly a platform that welcomes all cultures and race, I found that extremely discriminatory and downright unnecessary and untrue to highlight that catfishes are typically African men. Very disappointed, please do better than this.

JoFlaime ,

Excellent high quality show!

Have several family members that are on line dating and have been scammed. Red flags are not always so easy to spot when your you are hoping and desiring a relationship. This show is wonderful in helping others see those red flags and listening to their gut! Wonderful show! I will be sharing it with my friends and family!
