Inspiring....a breath of fresh air

Dee’s financial podcast is a treat! She’s relatable, as she reflects on her own experiences to drive a/the point home. She does an excellent job of exploring the individuals relationship with money: the impact of the individuals money mindset influenced by our mentality about money based on childhood upbringing, financial literacy or lack of etc. She keeps each episode light, hopeful, maintains a positive attitude of encouraging the listener to begin to do better with managing finances no matter where they’re at which is refreshing! She’s willing to be vulnerable with her audience by sharing her own experiences with managing her finances, which draws you in and as a listener I find this to be one of the best aspects of her podcast. I’d encourage any person regardless of age, or other demographics who is on the journey of financial empowerment to listen to Dee’s podcast!

Super relevant, great presentation

Only a couple of episodes in and I can’t speak highly enough about this podcast. As a fellow immigrant and a junior colleague, this podcast is a clear representation of what I identify with and what I aspire to achieve. Pure inspiration, Dee! Keep the episodes coming.
