7 Podcasts About Money
As we go into a new year, some of us are realizing that learning how to manage our resources is an essential part of growth. What better way to start developing our financial literacy than by listening to podcasts while we’re on our way to crush some other goals?
Bonus: All of these podcasts are hosted by women.
A lot of podcasts have associated courses you can pay for, but if you’re looking to save money, it’s a great idea to head to the library before purchasing a course.
