Mt Third Act ,

Fabulous podcast I have listened to for years!

Katana Abbot is an amazing and gifted woman, and I am grateful that she has shared her knowledge through her podcasts! First and foremost, it was by listening to Katana that I overcame my fear of learning how to create wealth and invest money. She also has been very encouraging as a coach for businesses in my Third Act. it seems like I learn something new on each podcast. Her guests are phenomenal! She gives back to her community through an amazing nonprofit program… So anyone who wants to learn about managing money can take her lessons… For free! Katana is just the best all around! My life is so much richer for having listened to her podcast and then having become her “long distance” friend. She is amazing and I love her, and I’m grateful for all of the wonderful things she teaches us! Marla Pennington
