Erin Papworth: Empowering Women to Navigate Finances and Travel
For episode 21 I sit down with Erin Papworth, the Founder and CEO of Nav.it, an exciting new app that aims to empower women to become more financially savvy – with travel as the inspiration and end goal. Erin spent 12 years working in sub-Saharan Africa on projects that increased health care access for marginalized women. Her work and travels have taken her to Tanzania, Zanzibar, Kenya, Malawi, and Haiti, Cameroon, Sudan, Mozambique, and other countries in Africa and around the world. Upon her return to the U.S., Erin became determined to change female conversations around finances and help women redefine their lifestyles and what wealth means to them.
Enter Nav.it, which launches in January 2019. The app combines inspiring and educational travel articles with practical budgeting tools and tips – showing women how to make travel more attainable. During our conversation Erin shares her personal travel journey, information about her new product, and her passion for helping other women navigate finances, travel and life.
