I love listening to this podcast! Bola always asks in-depth questions and displays real interest in her guests. I keep coming back for nuggets of insight and helpful information.

Empathetic, Practical, Motivational

I’m so glad I found this podcast. Bola is a woman truly loving her values, and is the embodiment of women supporting women. From making her courses free during COVID to increase how many people she can help, to hosting a podcast that provides realistic, actionable steps towards financial independence, she is truly incredible and I am grateful to her for all her efforts. I find many podcasts to be either too theoretical, hyped, or rambling. Bola offers a balanced, calm (love how everything is a “season”- makes any bad situation seem impermanent and manageable), focused, and doable approach to finance. I find myself taking notes while I listen, and looking forward to new content. Give this podcast a listen.
