This podcast is dedicated to inspiring women and men to become prosperous on their own terms. At Nav.it we want to change the narrative around money to be gender inclusive, positive and practical. Join the conversation as we build a new vocabulary around money and what it means to be successful. Hearing how women and men have rocked their finances—and have navigated traditionally closed-minded systems, is a great way to get inspired and shift mindsets.

What an inspirational interview with Jamila. She’s really inspired me to start investing again, even though we’ve got a little bit of debt we’re trying to get paid off. I highly recommend this podcast to anyone who needs that extra kick to get themselves in “I can do it!” mode 👍🏼
