The Women I Know, Episode 5


Episode 5

Investing Like A Woman with Jennifer Burks

This episode is almost 15 years in the making! Jennifer Burks is my best friend from college and I am so excited for you to get to know this powerful woman.

Jenna is a Philly native who has been working in finance for over 10 years. She is a brilliant financial mind but what makes her unique, like all of us, is her story. Jenna’s roots are deep when it comes to managing money, something many women aren’t taught in their youth. In this episode you’ll learn why you too can be good with money because well, you already are. We discuss everything from meeting as two freshman college girls at The University of Delaware to generational wealth and Jenna helps us all see that you don't need to be rich to invest.  She recommends some amazing apps for investing and fields questions from the TWIK community.

Additionally I get into some personal and [professional news + share a way you can support the inhumane and unconstitutional abortion ban laws that are being passed in this country.
