This week on EXPERTS we’re joined by Emilie Bellet, Founder of Vestpod, a financial platform supporting women to become more financially indepenadant.
Emilie is on a mission to empower more women to feel financially secure and independent. She’s a best-selling author of ‘You’re Not Broke, You’re Pre-Rich’ and has built a phenomenal community. She runs digital events, and hosts a highly rated podcast… but Emilie has had to tackle her own limiting beliefs in stepping up and positioning herself as an expert.
In this episode, she talks about the daunting departure from a well paid corporate job in finance, and stepping through failed attempts at start-up life, to eventually land on Vestpod. Now she supports thousands of women to create an abundant future for themselves… and we’re going to unpack how she did it.
