Marina 'The Trader Chick' ,

A podcast that covers two of my biggest passions, travel and personal finance

Traveling, and exploring the world with my family is what I love most. To achieve that I have worked hard to be financially independent and to be able to earn an income from home. Listening to a podcast that touches on these subjects and is constantly giving tips and tricks is extremely helpful and entertaining for me.
