Description

This podcast is dedicated to inspiring women to become prosperous on their own terms, elevating the way they experience the world. At Nav.it we believe women are redefining what wealth means to them. Join the conversation as we build a feminine vocabulary around money and what it means to be successful. Hearing how women have rocked their lifestyles, finances, and travel—and have navigated traditionally male dominated systems, is a great way to get inspired and shift mindsets. This podcast provides tips, resources and insights through weekly discussions and guest interviews. Let's Nav.it!

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 👍🏼
